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?
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?
Just did another package check and got the following output:
[lunitsond@book lib64]$ sudo pacman -Qo libcn* error: No package owns libcnbpcmcm383.so error: No package owns libcnbpcnclapi383.so error: No package owns libcnbpcnclbjcmd383.so error: No package owns libcnbpcnclui383.so error: No package owns libcnbpess383.so error: No package owns libcnbpo383.so error: No package owns libcncpcmcm.so error: No package owns libcncpmsimg383.so error: No package owns libcncpmsimg.so error: No package owns libcncpmslld383c.so error: No package owns libcncpmslld383.so error: No package owns libcncpmslld.so error: No package owns libcncpmsui.so error: No package owns libcncpnet.so error: No package owns libcnnet.so
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.
