THe server is working fine, just this library is missing and just yast/zypper is not working.[/QUOTE]
… and me suggesting to use “zypper” to find RPMs… :-[
“Don’t try that at home.” It’s no good idea to download system libraries from foreign sources, and be it “software.opensuse.org”. The minimum you’ll get is an unsupported system, the worst that can happen is that you render your system useless.
[QUOTE=stephenhendry;29050] I did get a result from your last command:
sles11:/tmp # rpm -ql libgcc_s1
WHat does this mean? Is the package already available on my system and I wonder why I couldn’t find it the first time…
And can I use this file?[/QUOTE]
It means that the RPM is installed and contains that file. It does not mean the file is still there and unmodified - but running “rpm -V” on that package earlier on reported no problem, so it should still be there and in proper state. IOW, running “ls -l /lib64/libgcc_s.so.1” should list the file as present. Does it (and please let us know the exact output, just for good measure)?
Files in /lib64 should automatically be used when requested by some application. One way is via an according path entry in /etc/ld.so.conf, and additional pathes could be added via i.e. environment variables (LD_LIBRARY_PATH). If that path wouldn’t be included, most of your system won’t work, so I bet it’s in ld.so.conf.
Does “ldd /lib64/libgcc_s.so.1” report any problems you could see?
