I look at
ld.so.conf, it reads:
OK, so I go to the include and see these files:
bind99-x86_64.conf kernel-4.16.11-100.fc26.x86_64.conf kernel-4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64.conf libiscsi-x86_64.conf
Now two of those files are place holders, the other two list about five libs between them.
ldconfig -v will list several pages of libs. Obviously there are default lib path assignments inside my fedora that specify these search paths not in
ld.co.conf. For example,
/usr/lib64 must be set somewhere, I cannot trace it via
I could not identify any lib path environmental variable that sets the internal default lib path.
