Related to Rudder - Bug #12966: Can not install rudder agent on AIX: libyaml.a could not be loadedReleasedAlexis MoussetActions

Updated by Alexis Mousset over 4 years ago

As rpath does not work on AIX, we need to either:

  • Set LIBPATH to add /opt/rudder/bin
  • Add a -L/opt/rudder/bin option to the linker so that it adds the path to the executable.

See http://www.hpc.cineca.it/content/tips-linking-libraries-ibm-sp6-aix#_Toc277600243 for more information.

Note taht it worked before as CFEngine does no internal dynamic linking on AIX, and openssl was already present on the systems elsewhere, so the problem only appeared when adding new dependencies (namely curl, yaml and xml).

dump -H cf-agent show the embedded library paths, and ldd works like on Linux.

we also need to usse -static-libgcc because libgcc is not provided on aix
