Description dan-freebsd 2018-10-05 12:48:26 UTC
My FreeBSD 11 guest gets nightly port updates and the new gnutls update pulled in today appears seriously broken, in that libgnutls.so gained an ELF linker dependency on libdl.so but the later does not exist.

IIUC there is no libdl.so needed for FreeBSD hosts, so the dep looks bogus

Note ld reports "not found" against libdl

$ ldd /usr/local/lib/libgnutls.so          
	libz.so.6 => /lib/libz.so.6 (0x801375000)
	libp11-kit.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libp11-kit.so.0 (0x80158e000)
	libunistring.so.2 => /usr/local/lib/libunistring.so.2 (0x8018af000)
	libdl.so.1 => not found (0)
	libtasn1.so.6 => /usr/local/lib/libtasn1.so.6 (0x801c60000)
	libnettle.so.6 => /usr/local/lib/libnettle.so.6 (0x801e74000)
	libhogweed.so.4 => /usr/local/lib/libhogweed.so.4 (0x8020ac000)
	libgmp.so.10 => /usr/local/lib/libgmp.so.10 (0x8022e1000)
	libintl.so.8 => /usr/local/lib/libintl.so.8 (0x802561000)
	libidn2.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libidn2.so.0 (0x80276c000)
	libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x800824000)
	libffi.so.6 => /usr/local/lib/libffi.so.6 (0x80298a000)
	libthr.so.3 => /lib/libthr.so.3 (0x802b91000)

This breaks ability to build against gnutls

$ cat demo.c
#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>
int main(int argc, char **argv)
{ gnutls_global_init();}

$ clang -I /usr/local/include -o demo -L/usr/local/lib -lgnutls demo.c
/usr/bin/ld: warning: libdl.so.1, needed by /usr/local/lib/libgnutls.so, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)

The breaks apps using gnutls

$ vim
Shared object "libdl.so.1" not found, required by "vim"

$ certtool 
Shared object "libdl.so.1" not found, required by "certtool"

As a note, the FreeBSD 10 build of gnutls 3.5.19 is working normally and doesn't have this libdl.so dependancy. Only the FreeBSD 11 build appears affected.
Comment 1 Tijl Coosemans freebsd_committer 2018-10-05 13:11:49 UTC
What version of FreeBSD do you have?  Packages are built for FreeBSD 11.2 now because 11.1 is no longer supported.  FreeBSD 11.2 does have libdl.
Comment 2 dan-freebsd 2018-10-05 13:18:25 UTC
Yeah, my VM is on FreeBSD 11.1 still
Comment 3 Sean Eric Fagan freebsd_committer 2018-10-07 00:20:09 UTC
I am running 11.2-RELEASE-p4, which I got to via freebsd-update, and I do not have libdl.so.1

Did you follow all the steps documented here:
Comment 5 dan-freebsd 2018-10-09 09:28:38 UTC
Closing this since I've confirmed that after updating to 11.2 things work as expected
Comment 6 cybermerlin 2018-11-03 21:31:17 UTC
if exists any conflict in config or another file, then need manual correct it, but any editer use libdl.so.1 which in 11.2.

And how can I upgrade to 11.2 without this lib?

Guys, help me please to fix this problem.
Comment 7 Sean Eric Fagan freebsd_committer 2018-11-03 21:34:00 UTC
As far as I can tell, at one point I upgraded via buildworld, and because of that, freebsd-update did not work properly afterwards.

So now I must always update via source.
Comment 8 cybermerlin 2018-11-03 21:37:45 UTC
I updating always through the freebsd-update.

Maybe I just download this file from freebsd.org? Give me pls link if it exist.
Comment 9 cybermerlin 2018-11-03 21:48:10 UTC
by the way, I executed 'pkg upgrade -f gnutls', but that not help to me.
Comment 10 cybermerlin 2018-11-03 21:51:54 UTC
n I executed 'ln -s /usr/lib/libdl.so.2 /usr/lib/libdl.so.1' n still have problem.
Comment 11 Tijl Coosemans freebsd_committer 2018-11-03 22:29:05 UTC
(In reply to cybermerlin from comment #10)
Try "ln -sf /lib/libc.so.7 /usr/lib/libdl.so.1"
Comment 12 cybermerlin 2018-11-03 22:39:50 UTC
(In reply to Tijl Coosemans from comment #11)
I just downloaded base.tgz, unpacked, copied  "url/lib/libdl.so" to '/usr/lib/libdl.so.1' and done.
BTW, guys, I mean developers|maintainers, this is very bad style, always have same troubles.
