Is it possible that the "new automatic update of etc.ld.cache for uci .so files" could cause strage behaviour if an identical lib exists in the base dsl system?

The reason I ask is that I compiled glibc-2.3.2 - principally to get the headers - and did not clean up all of the duplicated libs. A tar.gz extension works but a uci extension gives a segmentation fault when I try to load it - I built the uci twice to be sure there were no file errors.

The process is doing nothing more than adding to /etc/ld.so.conf and running ldconfig. You can always edit your /etc/ld.so.conf and manually run ldconfig. Are you running legacy? Is there any difference?

I tried booting from two different usb sticks - one legacy and one without legacy - and the result was the same:
Code Sample
$ mydsl-load /tmp/build.uci
/tmp/build.uci sucessfully loaded!
/usr/bin/iconsnap.sh: line 10:  2628 Segmentation fault      iconsnap.lua

I tried a couple of other uci and they loaded without errors. I'll try removing the libs that are duplicates of those in the base dsl and see if that changes anything.

uci extensions are ready-only and were never intended to be used for system overlays. They are for self contained applications. It would appear that you are attempting to create a uci when a unc would be more approriate.

Extension building questions/issues are not really appropriate as "Site News". They should be in the mydsl extension area(s).
