Files in /usr/lib64

I know there are a lot of threads going around about this, but I didn't want to hijack anyone else with a different problem. I am currently trying to rid /usr/lib64 of its contents, but I am not having much luck. The current directory has the following files:

bjlib                   libcnbpcnclui383.so  libcncpmsimg.so      libcncpnet.so
cups                    libcnbpess383.so     libcncpmslld383c.so  libcnnet.so
libcnbpcmcm383.so       libcnbpo383.so       libcncpmslld383.so
libcnbpcnclapi383.so    libcncpcmcm.so       libcncpmslld.so
libcnbpcnclbjcmd383.so  libcncpmsimg383.so   libcncpmsui.so

I used "pacman -Qo" to see what package these files belong to, but I consistently get that they do not belong to any package. What should I do about this?

Re: Files in /usr/lib64

The first couple are printer related; the rest look obscure enough to try removing...

Re: Files in /usr/lib64

Alright, I got rid of the cups and bjlib directories by removing my Canon printer drivers. I still have all the others left though. Anyone have a thought on those?

Re: Files in /usr/lib64

At a guess, you've been "make && make install"-ing things. That's why pacman doesn't know about those soname files.

I recommend that you remove them, and read up on makepkg and PKGBUILDs for any future adventures into the world of software compilation.
