Messages during update 'yum update' at CentOS 6 VM

Hello,

at the last update (Kernel updated
from 2.6.32-696.3.2.el6.x86_64 to 2.6.32-696.6.3.el6.x86_64)
I got these messages

Updating : ipv6calc-1.0.0-20.el6.x86_64 6/25
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.yi7R81: line 1: /usr/sbin/ldconfig: No such file or

after this a

Looks like ipv6calc is provided by EPEL - and the %post and %postun
scripts in that RPM use '/usr/sbin/ldconfig' - which doesn't exist ...

They should be using '/sbin/ldconfig' ?

I guess you need to report this as a bug
(<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL#Communicating_with_the_EPEL_SIG" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL#Communicating_with_the_EPEL_SIG">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL#Communicating_with_the_EPEL_SIG</a>) ?

And possibly create a symlink for ldconfig in /usr/sbin/ as it likely
will happen with other other newer software from EPEL for el6.

as root .. :

cd /usr/sbin/

ln -s /sbin/ldconfig .

THEN:

ll ldconfig

SHOULD SHOW:

lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 14 Jul 17 12:50 ldconfig -> /sbin/ldconfig

(the date would be different)

This is NOT required .. but would solve any problems with the movement
(in fedora and rhel after the el6 tree was stablized) of ldconfig from
/sbin to /usr/sbin

To be clear, it is a software bug as James stated and it should be
reported to the EPEL bugzilla (as should any others found).
