Which package installs /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.3 ?



  • I'm playing around with packages and system updates.
    Fairly regularly after a system upgrade, configuration restore, etc. when a package reinstall is triggered, I end up with a system that I have to reinstall from scratch.

    The console error message I get, is always the same in these cases:

    /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.3: unsupported file format

    So something must (re)install or modify /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.3 and after that the system is so crippled that I can't control it from the web-configurator, and I basically have to reinstall the entire pfSense system from scratch.

    Whatever package(s) install(s) /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.3, one them (if more than one), screws around with that library, and should be removed from the list of packages until this is fixed, because this is crippling and will sooner or later bite a bunch of people.

  • That looks like an i386-file on an amd64-system or vice versa. You can rename or delete the file and see which package(s) offend to start.

    The problem is nothing starts anymore after that. I barely get into the shell and can do an slogin, if I have it enabled first. None of the menu options except to break to the shell work anymore, web configuration won't work anymore etc.

    So the system is pretty much unusable once that happens.
