Whenever you have an application that is core dumping, segfaulting or misbehaves, run chkbin against the application and then look at the chkbin log file for troubleshooting information.
Chkbin does the following:
- Checks the location of each shared library
- Identifies each RPM package owner for the binary and each of it's shared library dependencies
- Validates each unique RPM package
- Displays the root environment variables LD_LIBRARY_PATH and LD_PRELOAD
- Gets a copy of the configuration files /etc/ld.so.conf and /etc/ld.so.preload
- Checks for unique dlopen libraries and their validity
If the RPM validation shows modifications to configuration files, confirm the modifications are correct and the configuration is valid.
If an application cannot find a shared library make sure the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable is set correctly according to the application's documentation and run ldconfig.
