Hi,

Did others notic there seems to be a problem with ldconfig on Centos 5?

It got apparant with the latest clamav update of rpmforge but it seems
that ldconfig does not bild all the information that is required.

Or as the report read on the MailScanner mailinglist:

Is this something that needs to be reported upstream? Or is it Centos 5
specific?
