PostPosted: Wed Mar 23, 2005 5:59 am    Post subject: glibc failing Reply with quote

I'm on a relatively recent install (2 weeks old), and have done an emerge sync, then emerge world to do a quick update of my system. However glibc keeps failing on me and I can't figure out how to fix this. here's the error:
Code:
bash-2.05b# emerge glibc -Davt

These are the packages that I would merge, in reverse order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild     U ] sys-libs/glibc-2.3.4.20041102-r1 [2.3.4.20040808-r1] -build -debug -erandom -hardened(-multilib) +nls -nomalloccheck -nptl -nptlonly -pic -userlocales 0 kB

#....  snipped a bunch ....

checking for autoconf... autoconf
checking whether autoconf works... yes
checking whether ranlib is necessary... no
checking LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable... contains current directory
configure: error:
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH shouldn't contain the current directory when
*** building glibc. Please change the environment variable
*** and run configure again.


Things I've tried:
unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH (before calling the emerge glibc)
env-update
etc-update (handling any config files), then env-update
setting an entry in /etc/portage/packages.keywords for "=sys-libs/glibc-2.3.4.20040808-r1" (though I think this might have been in the wrong file).

It seems something in the ebuild is setting a value into LD_LIBRARY_PATH that's messing up the compile. Is there anything I can do to my machine to fix this? (short of debugging an ebuild - I don't think I'm ready for that yet...) This problem will prevent emerge world from working for me...:cry:

Thanks for any tips.

I'd look in /etc/ld.so.conf and /etc/ld.so.conf.d, if it exists. Past that, I'd try running ldconfig manually as root.

Thanks diastelo.

I had no luck looking in /etc/ld.so.conf or trying ldconfig as root. However you pointed me in the right direction. There is a note in the ld.so.conf file to not edit that file directly, but to modify the settings in the files in /etc/env.d. I checked that directory, and found 2 entries for gcc - 05gcc-i686-pc-linux-gnu and 05gcc. Neither of these files had the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable. Then I remembered that grep is a great tool for finding text in a series of files. So, did
Code:
grep LD_LIBRARY_PATH *
from in the /etc/env.d directory. Wouldn't you know it, but Cold Fusion 7 sets a file in there, and sets the variable. (and here I was so proud that I finally got CF running under Linux). The contents of the file (22cfusion) are
Code:

# Establish variables
CF_HOME="/opt/tomcat/webapps/cfusion"
CF_WEB_INF=$CF_HOME/WEB-INF

# Add binary file directories to the system path
CF_SHARED_LIB=$CF_WEB_INF/cfusion/lib
CF_SHARED_LIBS=$CF_SHARED_LIB:$CF_SHARED_LIB/_ilnx21/bin
LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$CF_SHARED_LIBS:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
# If using sandbox security,
# establish security JVM options (all on one line).
CF_SECURITY_JVM_OPTIONS="-Djava.security.manager \
-Djava.security.policy=$CF_WEB_INF/cfusion/lib/coldfusion.policy \
-Djava.security.auth.policy=$CF_WEB_INF/cfusion/lib/neo_jaas.policy"

# Establish graphics JVM options (all on one line).
# For JDK 1.4.1 and higher, specify
# com.gp.java2d.ExHeadlessGraphicsEnvironment instead of
# com.gp.java2d.ExGraphicsEnvironment.
CF_GRAPHICS_JVM_OPTIONS="-Xbootclasspath/a:$JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar:$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/rt.jar:\
$JAVA_HOME/lib/dt.jar:$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/i18n.jar:$CF_WEB_INF/cfusion/lib/webchartsJava2D.jar
-Dcom.gp.java2d.ExHeadlessGraphicsEnvironment"

JAVA_OPTS="$CF_JVM_OPTIONS -Xms128m -Xmx256m -Dfile.encoding=iso8859-1"


So, I commented out the LD_LIBRARY_PATH line, then did
Code:
unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH
and ran env-update. Then tried to emerge glibc, and it's compiling as we speak (er type...).

Hopefully this info helps someone else out....

Thanks! Helped me too.

In my case I found LD_LIBRARY_PATH was being set in /etc/profile.env and /etc/env.d/00basic, in both cases it was being set to /usr/lib which I don't think is necessary. Commented them out and now glibc is building nicely.

I have just been skipping the glibc update for the last few months, never bothered trying to fix it. Now all is good.

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Portage & Programming.
Gentoo is already installed, so not an installing gentoo problem.

I used to have a problem that glibc-2.3.6-r3 would not emerge because "LD_LIBRARY_PATH shouldn't contain the current directory".

I solved this problem after reading your post. The solution was to type as root:

Code:
unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH
env-update
emerge glibc


Thanks for the indirect help!

Hi there,
This post seems to be rather old, however, it still useful. The dave_deu way did the trick.
