ldd -s says 'insecure directory name'... what does this mean?
Posted on 2003-11-24
I'm attempting to run a program dependant on a bunch of library files. All of the files are in the proper /lib directory, yet the program doesn't run. I did an LDD command on it and it simply said the file was not found, despite the fact that other libraries in the same directory were.
Upon doing an LDD -s, however, it first displayed all of the possible search paths, and then
ignore path = /whichever_lib_dir (insecure directory name)
for each one, whereas the others at least write "trying path."
I dont understand why it would be doing this for this one specific library file only. The permissions and whatnot for it are identical to all other files which are being properly found, and I am an admin on the machine.
How can I get this library file recognized? Thanks in advance!
