lldpd is broken on 1.1.8
Closed, WontfixPublicBUG


Attempting to enable LLDP on 1.1.8 results in the following error message:

# commit
[ service lldp ]
Starting lldpd...
/usr/sbin/lldpd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
ctl_connect: unable to connect to socket /var/run/lldpd.socket: No such file or directory
fatal: unable to connect to socket /var/run/lldpd.socket
Warning: error setting location on [eth0]

Needs to be rebuilt for the new libssl, I guess

I ran ldd on everything in /usr/bin and /usr/sbin and lldpd appears to be the only broken binary.

@UnicronNL can you rebuild it ?

The lldpd package had really insufficient dependencies, it didn't even list libssl. This is why it wasn't rebuilt, we used apt-cache rdepend to find the packages that depend on libssl0.9.8, and due to missing dependencies this one didn't show up.

Until we make a new release, you can install an updated package by hand:

Another workaround is the following:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/{1.0.2,0.9.8}
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/{1.0.2,0.9.8}
sudo ldconfig

# commit
[ service lldp ]
Starting lldpd...

# pgrep lldp

What's the probability of seeing a 1.1.9 release sometime soon with this fix in it? I have a bunch of machines I'd like to upgrade to 1.1.8+, but it seems irritating to have to manually install an updated .deb on each of them.

we not going to do 1.1.9 and 1.2 should fix this
