Problem with libperls.. Debian 8.7

Postby bookie » 2017-04-20 17:18

Hi guys!
Please don't jump down my throat...this is a clonezilla problem but Steven is always busy and doesn't respond that quickly...

I thought because of the nature of the problem someone might be able to point me in the right direction...

I have a server that I use clonezilla on...at the moment it is Debian 8.7 xfce and I would like to keep it that way because Debian is more stable than other distros...

In order to have clonezilla server on Debian you use drbl....After the installation of drbl there are two setup parameters that get your computer ready to be a clonezilla server...

When running the last of the setup parameters:

Code: Select all
$ sudo /usr/sbin/drblpush -i


I get an error that causes a great deal of problems with perl:

Code: Select all
Running: chroot /tftpboot/node_root /usr/sbin/update-rc.d firstboot defaults
/usr/bin/perl: error while loading shared libraries: libperl.so.5.20: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


The above is only one of a whole bunch of libperl.so.5.20 "errors"

If I look in /usr/bin/ there are two perl run files "Perl" and Perl5.20.2...but there is no mention of libperl.so.5.20?

If I look in /usr/lib I can find a Perl5 directory...nothing in it but no sign of libperl.so.5.20


Has anyone any ideas as how to fix this?

P.S.
I can find libperl.so.5.20 and libperl.so.5.20.2 in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/...

I don't think it cares about what you have on your system; it's trying to start a chroot from scratch, which is sort of a virtual machine, and it can't find the library in the chroot. At least that's my guess.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.0.6, Pale Moon 27.4.0, Liquorix kernel 4.11-9, mpv 0.25.0, Kodi 17.3, Ksnip 1.3.1, Mesa 13.0.6

The file is at
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libperl.so.5.20.2


You might need to symlink it it to your chrooted /lib dir
