General :: Libraries - Binary Executable Properties : Ldd Alternative?

Mar 23, 2011

The Linux ldd command can show the dynamic libraries used by an executable. It's a bash script.But it seems to be fragile, and does not work on some binaries. Is there an alternative tool? In my specific example, I can use:

% file datab2txt

datab2txt: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, for GNU/Linux 2.4.0, not stripped

but ldd fails with:

% ldd -v datab2txt

not a dynamic executable

General :: Specify The Location Of Libraries To A Binary?

Sep 25, 2010

I'll be using a specific example, but really this generalizes to pretty much any binary on linux that can't seem to find its' dependent libraries. So, I have a program that won't run because of missing libraries:

./cart5: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

ldd sheds some light on the issue: => (0x00007fff18b01000) => not found => /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/4.4.3/

Programming :: Using Binary C++ Libraries?

Feb 21, 2011

I am learning C++ and wish to include some Boost functions in my code. My machine is running Debian Linux with the pre-installed boost binarys.I have a couple of questions:How do I include the library in my C++ code as there are no cpp or h files only binary files (eg /usr/lib/ and /usr/lib/libboost_regex-d.a)How do I comile the code. I am using DialogBlocks for creating forms using wxwidgets. The editor also compiles the code using the gcc compiler. Do I have to give an instruction to the compiler saying which file is requried and where to find it? If so, any ideas how this is done?

Programming :: Random Libraries Are Not Directly Executable?

Since I read that executing a library could return its version number, I ran "/lib/" on uClinux, but it triggers an error.I'm told that random libraries are not directly executable. Does someone know what a random library is?PS: In case that matters, here's the short version of the error:

Undefined instruction

Programming :: Convert An Arbitrary Binary File Into A Executable File?

Feb 18, 2010

In a project I'm working on with a few other people, I got the task of writing an assembler. The last thing I do is convert the commands into a binary representation, and jam it into a file. Now one of my teammates said he'd like to be able to "reference" the code within another program. He said he'd be able to do this if the file I output is a Linux object file. I'm thinking it'd also work as an executable. Anyway, he said he'd like to be able to grab the file and reference the binary by address. I'm still fuzzy on this, and if you're confused with what I said here, please tell me so I can ask him for better details.Anyway, I'm aware that gcc can compile files to ".o", but that's only for C/C++, and my file is just binary. I'm also aware of "ld", but I haven't seen any use of it to help me. I'm happy to hear suggestions as to what I can do. If anything, I think I'll implement a few functions to grab the bits and hand them to him in an array or something.

General :: Use Always The Latest Versions Of The Libraries And Don't Save The Old Libraries For Compatibility?

May 11, 2011

Why many Linux distros are trying to use always the latest versions of the libraries and don't save the old libraries for compatibility? I mean, I can see libtiff for example, i can found a on my /usr/lib, but doesn't store a or 3 just for binary applications or games. For this example, I need for uplink.

That should happen too on the old version of sims for linux, some ID games or others.What's wrong with storing old libraries? PD: Yay, my first post on 3 years!

General :: Set Properties For Xterm And Screen For Each User?

Mar 20, 2010

I use xterm with a particular font size and type. But every time I start xterm I have to give them in arguments


xterm -fa terminus -fs 12

Is there some configuration file where I can out the above parameters and xterm will pick them itself. But I don't want these properties to be set globally. Every user should be able to set it for himself. I have searched all the hidden folders and rc files in my home folder, but didn't find anyone related to xterm. What should I do? Similarly every time I start screen, I have to issue


:caption always
:caption string %w

Can I make it automatic by editing some configuration file? Is there any way through which every xterm I start will have a screen session already open in it?

General :: Process Gnome-appearance-properties Causing 100 Percent CPU Usage

Mar 18, 2011

I am running a HP dc5750 dual core computer with a 512MB Nvidia 7200/7300 graphics card my operating system is Ubuntu 10.10. Both my processors are operating at 98-104% cpu usage, it appears that gnome-appearance-properties is the culprit and the only way to return to normal is to end these processes. I have been setting up the desktop cube to my liking and the processor appears to rise up to 100% again. Would getting a 1GB graphics card correct this or is this a bug in maverick meerkat. Any advice would be appreciated. Please keep it simply as I am a Newbie to Linux and find things over-whelming at times. Also would running at 100% on both processors at indefinite periods of time harm my computer.

Do I have to write by own code for it, or is there any other alternate method.

General :: Pack Some Binary Blobs With Rpm?

Nov 3, 2010

Suppose i have some binary blobs in ~/pkg/opt, ( I created those with the standard ./configure, make, make DESTDIR=~/pkg/opt install ).Is it possible to pack this structure into an installable rpm that can be installed/uninstalled from a RHEL/CentOS system...? rpm -ivh my_package.rpm ? Doing this in Slackware is easy, as well as in Arch, one installs to a fakeroot ( pkg ), creates a PKGBUILD, and runs makepkg -R PKGBUILD, this creates an installable Arch Package. But i am not very familiar with the more fashionable package formats, *.debs and *.rpms. Can i just pack the thing from binary, or do I have to build it and pack it in the process? makepkg -R PKGBUILD just packs it if one is lazy enough to write the whole PKGBUILD.

General :: How To Create Binary RPM From Source Tar

Jun 7, 2011

Right now to install software from source I do a ./configure && make && make install which doesn't allow for easy uninstallation (some don't come with an 'uninstall' goal, and if they do you have to keep the source around). I'd like to learn how to create binary RPMs from source tar.gz files (one reason being that it makes for easier uninstallation). I tried the following but it complains with the following errors:

$ rpmbuild -ta mysource.tar.gz
error: Name field must be present in package: (main package)
error: Version field must be present in package: (main package)
error: Release field must be present in package: (main package)
error: Summary field must be present in package: (main package)
error: Group field must be present in package: (main package)
error: License field must be present in package: (main package)

Apparently that's what happens when there is no SPEC file in the tarball. But all the tars I've tried give this same error. Is there a simple way to create binary RPMs from source files - as an example, this source tar [URL].
