Apache pipe logging problem on Solaris

I am changing the TranferLog to CustomLog for Apache logging using the pipe to avoid the big size log problem.
This is on Solaris.

In the following code segment in httpd.conf, I commented the Transfer log, but added the CustomLog.
The access log is getting created with TransferLog, but the same access.log is not being created in case of CustomLog. I  follwed the Apache.org and addet the CustomLog statemet as shown below.

I also tried the CustomLog's access.log path with logs/access.log, similar to TransferLog.

<VirtualHost *:9820>
#TransferLog  logs/access.log
CustomLog  "|/opt/xyz/xxx/apache/bin/logresolve >> /opt/xyz/xxx/apache/logs/access.log" common
ErrorLog     logs/error.log

the error_log is showing the following errors
ld.so.1: logresolve: fatal: libgcc_s.so.1: open failed: No such file or directory
ld.so.1: logresolve: fatal: libgcc_s.so.1: open failed: No such file or directory
piped log program '/opt/xyz/xxx/apache/bin/logresolve >> /opt/xyz/xxx/apache/logs/access.log' failed une

Hi srini_kandimalla,
   To help use to help you, you should post the information about your
OS version (and platform), appache version and how was it installed
(eg, from binary package, or complie from source, if you build it from source, you need to give infor about your C/gcc complier).

Now to get back to your question,  you might forgot to install gcc/gcclib in your system, or you apache cann't locate the libgcc_s.so.1 file.

Type in:
find / -type f -name " libgcc_s.so.1"
to see if the file is there, if it exists.


to the apache startup script, must put them  before start apache.

If you get the binary package from somewhere else, it is better to download the binary packages  for your version of OS from:

please make sure that you also download and install all the dependencies packages specified in the download readme page.

I  have set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to libgcc_s.so.1 path. But still I faced tha problems.
Finally I copied libgcc_s.so.1 to /usr/lib. Then it start working.
