Error while loading shared libraries


Your application fails almost immediately, and you see a log resembling the following to the application’s output:

/app: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Note: Note that “” is a specific example, but the error is the same for any other file.


The linker loaded by the kernel to perform the linking was not able to find one of the shared object files needed by the program on the file-system.


Copy the missing shared object onto the filesystem for the Vorteil app at an appropriate path. You need to determine the location of the missing file on your system then copy that file and add it to your Vorteil app so that it appears on the same absolute path on the app as it was on your Linux machine. For example, if you sourced from /lib64/ on your Linux machine it must appear at /lib64/ on your app.
