    Command:

    ldconfig

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           /sbin/ldconfig  [  -nNvXV ] [ -f conf ] [ -C cache ] [ -r root ] direc-
           tory ...
           /sbin/ldconfig -l [ -v ] library ...
           /sbin/ldconfig -p
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           ldconfig creates the necessary links  and  cache  to  the  most  recent
           shared  libraries  found  in  the  directories specified on the command
           line, in the file /etc/ld.so.conf, and in the trusted directories (/lib
           and  /usr/lib).  The cache is used by the run-time linker, ld.so or ld-
           linux.so.  ldconfig checks the header and filenames of the libraries it
           encounters  when  determining  which  versions  should have their links
           updated.
    
           ldconfig will attempt to deduce the type of ELF libs  (i.e.,  libc5  or
           libc6/glibc)  based  on  what  C  libs,  if any, the library was linked
           against.
    
           Some existing libs do not  contain  enough  information  to  allow  the
           deduction  of  their  type.  Therefore, the /etc/ld.so.conf file format
           allows the specification of an expected type.  This is  used  only  for
           those   ELF   libs   which   we  can  not  work  out.   The  format  is
           "dirname=TYPE", where TYPE can be libc4, libc5, or libc6.  (This syntax
           also works on the command line.)  Spaces are not allowed.  Also see the
           -p option.  ldconfig should normally be run by the superuser as it  may
           require write permission on some root owned directories and files.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -v     Verbose  mode.   Print  current version number, the name of each
                  directory as it is scanned, and  any  links  that  are  created.
                  Overrides quiet mode.
    
           -n     Only  process  directories specified on the command line.  Don't
                  process the trusted directories (/lib and  /usr/lib)  nor  those
                  specified in /etc/ld.so.conf.  Implies -N.
    
           -N     Don't rebuild the cache.  Unless -X is also specified, links are
                  still updated.
    
           -X     Don't update links.  Unless -N is also specified, the  cache  is
                  still rebuilt.
    
           -f conf
                  Use conf instead of /etc/ld.so.conf.
    
           -C cache
                  Use cache instead of /etc/ld.so.cache.
    
           -r root
                  Change to and use root as the root directory.
