No experience with Freebsd, but I need to write and run a script. Can't install python-ldap or another lib.

An error:

/usr/local/bin/python3.7 -m pip install python-ldap ld-elf.so.1: /lib/libc.so.7: version FBSD_1.6 required by /usr/local/lib/libpython3.7m.so.1.0 not found

This library is in the /usr/local/lib/ folder,

# ls /usr/local/lib/ | grep py

But if use ldconfig -r

# ldconfig -r | grep py
        91:-lpython2.7.1 => /usr/local/lib/libpython2.7.so.1

I dont know how "rescan" ldconfig. I need your help.

  • Please edit in the specific version of FreeBSD 12 you're using. Also, please include the output of file /usr/local/bin/python3.7.

FBSD_1.6 refers to FreeBSD 13. What version are you running? Did you install packages for 13 on a FreeBSD 12 installation? Sounds like upgrading FreeBSD will solve the issue.

FreeBSD Symbol versioning

You can see the current version running like this

uname -mrs
