libc.so.6 in 13.2.1

Installed 13.2.1 and an application named aos. In gnome terminal, came to this.

[olpc@xo-53-1d-bb ~]$ aos
Unix.Dlopen: loading library libc.so.6 failed
 ...
[olpc@xo-53-1d-bb ~]$ su
bash-4.2# yum provides libc.so.6
glibc-2.16-24.fc18.i686 : The GNU libc libraries

Package glibc-2.16-34.fc18.i686 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

Conclusion: an application claims libc.so.6 is absent; yum claims it is present.

Yum is not relying on an actual test for presence of libc.so.6, but is relying on the history of the package system, so this method of using yum is not entirely reliable. However, libc.so.6 is required before yum can run this test, so it does prove libc.so.6 is present. Whether it is present or not may not be relevant to the problem; there's no error from your application suggesting the file is missing. --Quozl 03:41, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

For reference, no such problem in OLPC 13.2.0 or in Debian Wheezy.

Ideas? Thanks,       ... Peter E.

Fix the application? Examine the source code of the application to find out why it is opening the file. Change the source code to report further details of the failure to open the file. Use strace to find what syscalls are failing. Repeat the installation as root. --Quozl 03:14, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
