While I am installing chef , I am getting below error.

[root@centos Tools]# chef-server-ctl reconfigure
/opt/opscode/embedded/bin/ruby: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by /opt/opscode/embedded/lib/libruby.so.2.1)
/opt/opscode/embedded/bin/ruby: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.17' not found (required by /opt/opscode/embedded/lib/libruby.so.2.1)

I have downloaded glibc-2.14.1.tar.gz and glibc-2.17.tar.gz sources and compiled manually with --prefix location as /home/virt02/lib but still no use. Getting same above error.

Update : I did

[root@centos Tools]# cat /etc/ld.so.conf.d/randomLibs.conf
[root@centos Tools]# ldconfig
[root@centos Tools]#

Update :

[root@centos ~]# ldd /opt/opscode/embedded/lib/libruby.so.2.1

[root@centos ~]#

But still not working.

    Do strace -f -v -s150 -o log chef-server-ctl reconfigure and post log to pastebin. – user140866 Dec 28 '15 at 11:12

  • If your distribution does not provide newer glibcs to you (I am sure this is default and not going to be changed in near future), then you need to modify path to dynamic linker in your executables that load libraries that require those newer glibcs. Or run it directly with newer dynamic linker which must be somewhere in your /home/virt02/lib. – user140866 Dec 28 '15 at 11:36
  • So please post additional output of readelf -l /opt/opscode/embedded/service/omnibus-ctl/chef-server-ctl to pastebin. – user140866 Dec 28 '15 at 11:37

    Have you tried setting all the env vars to the location of the .so? I.e. LIBRARY_FLAGS before compiling (linking, actually) and LD_LIBRARY_FLAGS before executing? If you don't set it I guess the system's .so is going to be used (might be of a lower version). In your ldd output, clearly /lib64's libc is being used. – Alex Dec 30 '15 at 19:16
