[SOLVED] ldconfig: /usr/lib/$NAME is empty, not checked.

I was running updates a day or two ago, and my laptop decided it would be a wonderful time for a hard-crash which I had to forcefully reboot from. I had hopped it was only in the downloading phase, but when I realized a program would not load for no apparent reason today, I realized this is not so.

I already fixed that specific program using a forceful installation, but one artifact remaining from the poorly-timed crash remains--every time I run pacman, it yields the following:

ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libmaildir.so.5.5.0 is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libakonadi-filestore.so.5.5.0 is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libakonadi-singlefileresource.so.5.5.0 is empty, not checked.

ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libKEduVocDocument.so is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libKEduVocDocument.so.5 is empty, not checked.

I have found some simmilar posts, but in most of their cases they usually were able to find the owner of the files and then reinstall them, in my case I have run

pacman -Qo $NAME

on some of the packages, and all that I have tested on have yielded no owner. Same result with pkgfile.

Is it safe to just delete these files? It seems like that would be too easy...

Re: [SOLVED] ldconfig: /usr/lib/$NAME is empty, not checked.

Welcome to the arch linux forums Eadword.

ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libcompoundviewer.so.5.0.0 is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libscience.so.5.0.0 is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libscience.so is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libscience.so.5 is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libcompoundviewer.so is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libcompoundviewer.so.5 is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libKEduVocDocument.so.5.0.0 is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libKEduVocDocument.so is empty, not checked.
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libKEduVocDocument.so.5 is empty, not checked.

Should be found by Pacman#Search_for_a_package_that_contains_a_specific_file
Would recomend checking all packages for corruption with

$ pacman -Qkk

and trying a search engine to locate the creator of the other files.

Ah, thank you, yes that is finding the package owners.

I am guessing that I should go ahead and reinstall the packages which are resulted from the pacman -Fs searches and then verify the warnings are fixed?

Re: [SOLVED] ldconfig: /usr/lib/$NAME is empty, not checked.

I would also reinstall every package that produced a "mtree: Unrecognized archive format" warning and kdepim-runtime because of the multiple size mismatch warnings.
The size mismatch for linux / linux-ck is expected as those packages install scripts run depmod.
