Running unstable = ~x86
encountered this little glitch upon reboot this morning after latest -u world last night.

Code:

/etc/init.d/sshd start
 * Starting sshd ...
/usr/sbin/sshd: error while loading shared libraries: libcom_err.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Code:

 locate *libcom_err*
/lib/libcom_err.so
/lib/libcom_err.so.2
/lib/libcom_err.so.2.1
/usr/lib/libcom_err.so
/usr/lib/libcom_err.a
/usr/athena/lib/libcom_err.la
/usr/athena/lib/libcom_err.a

Code:

 emerge -s e2fsprogs
Searching...   
[ Results for search key : e2fsprogs ]
[ Applications found : 1 ]
 
*  sys-fs/e2fsprogs
      Latest version available: 1.37-r1
      Latest version installed: 1.37-r1


ugly hack:

Code:

 ln -s /lib/libcom_err.so /lib/libcom_err.so.3

Code:

 /etc/init.d/sshd start
 * Starting sshd ...                                                 [ ok ]

you have to recompile mit-krb5, or try revdep-rebuild -p to see what you are missing.

ooooh, ok. I searched for the error first and didn't find anything. I did the revdep-rebuild thing and only a gnome system tools soemthing was missing (I uninstalled gnome a while back and I guess I have a few remnants). But cool, thanks for the info. I'll try that.

UPDATE: whoops, that didn't do it for me. I guess I'll go back to the symlink for now. thanks anyway tho.

hi, i'm having the same problem and the truth is that revdep-rebuild has bug and didn't find the broken-dependacies. I have recompiled some of the programs, but on some occassions this doesn't help. For example I have two time recompiled subversion and it contniues to think it is linked to libcom_err.so.3. Probably it is a bug in the make file.

Maybe just remerge openssh? Also, try the latest version of revdep-rebuild.
Code:
mkdir -p /etc/portage
echo app-portage/gentoolkit >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
echo "app-portage/gentoolkit ~*" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
emerge gentoolkit

I use already the latest revdep-rebuild (the whole system is ~86) and I've rebuilded openssh, it works, but subversion is building against the missing library somehow::(( (probably I'll need to submit a bug report)

I thought the missing libraries are from kerberos, or they are only overwritten from mit-kerberos? I'll try it.

It was true that com_err was in e2fsprogs, there were also bugs for overwritten duplicate files.
My problem with subversion was neon, but I had a hard try finding it (with revdep-rebuild functionality going to null in recent times, I've had to manually find the broken libraries::))

What version of revdep-rebuild is it? The one in the latest (masked) gentookit seems to work fine for me.

Hi! It is the latest unstable, but not masked one:
Code:
equery l gentoolkit
[ Searching for package 'gentoolkit' in all categories among: ]
 * installed packages
[I--] [  ] app-portage/gentoolkit-dev-0.2.4 (0)
[I--] [  ] app-portage/gentoolkit-0.2.1_pre2 (0)

It has found nothing of interest except the standard opera brokeness ::))
I don't feel comfortably with masked portage-utilities with so much bugs in the last time, but I could give it a try, (or better write a script, it should not be so difficult to write in python::))).

There are at least a few people on the gentoo-user ml (myself included) using gentoolkit-0.2.1_pre3 with no complaints. Besides, revdep-rebuild does not make any direct changes to your system (emerge does that).

Thank you, zmedico! It is running in the moment, but has already found a hell of a borked things.
I wonder, why a bug fix release like this is not in testing (~x86), instead of the borked which is now marked as ~x86.
Nonetheless, thank you for the hint.

I have the same breakage here. revdep-rebuild found 2 broken dependencies, but I have *lots* of packages that don't work anymore. This is a major big fat annyoiance :/

Man, i *hate* this. Whoever did this should be ****!

Now, it seems libcom_err got downgraded somehow, or why are programs complaining about libcom_err.so.3 when all I have now is libcom_err.so.2? Or was there a versioning blooper?

So far I had to remerge openssh. After realizing smb browsing with nautilus no longer worked I tried gnome-vfs, only to find out that samba itself did no longer work :(

I guess this list will grow large.

:evil:

I'm doing a revdep-rebuild now, and hopefully it will work out ok. Incredible the amount of packages that depend on this library to work :(. I'm running stable, but I have a lot of packages that are in package.keywords ~x86. Mostly desktop stuffs, but openssh was a shocker.

Make sure you have these installed:
=sys-libs/com_err-1.37
=sys-libs/ss-1.37
=sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.37-r1

Then run revdep-rebuild to fix the issues.

I had. redvdep-rebuild wouldn't. Believe me. I tried.

You can imagine how happy I am to have tried it on my workstations first before even applying to the test server. Not to mention the production servers :evil:

well i did test-install it on my laptop, but didn't try it out hard enough.

i found out that it has definitely to do with kerbereos, but not all systems, which use the kerberos SUE-flag are affected. or not as severely affected as other systems.

my laptop did not like to revdep-rebuild, while the production system does currently without moaning.

i'll see if i find out more details.
