I’m getting an error:

error while loading shared libraries: libtbb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

On Kali Linux.

Is there any way to fix this?

Yes, I tried to install the library but it throws me an error, installed the -dev library and the error persists.

Any help on this please? I’m desperate at this point.

  • The version of bt_fuzzer you are running was built against an older version of libtbb.so than is available on your distro. The answer is to rebuild bt_fuzzer from source, linking against the dependencies available in your distro.

Managed to install libtbb2 on Kali Linux.

wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/t/tbb/libtbb2_2020.3-1_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i libtbb2_2020.3-1_amd64.deb

sudo apt-get install -f

    This method prevented any authentication of the installed package (interception could have happened. Considering Kali is about security, that's bad). And also: wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian#Don.27t_make_a_FrankenDebian

    Considering also Kali developers' explicit warning about mixing Kali with non-Kali sources as the most common reason of breaking Kali, I think @Stewart's recommendation of building from source against Kali's current libraries (libtbb12 in this case) would be a safer option. This not as much for you, as for the future generations searching for help for the same issue :-) Mar 18, 2023 at 10:31

    Downvoting because while this technically works, absolutely everyone who knows how distributions in general or Kali and Debian in specific work will tell you that this is a terribly bad idea and you shouldn't do it unless you know what you're doing. Mar 20, 2023 at 6:42
