Shared lib symlinks in target image


Lijun Chen
 

Hi,


When I build a yocto image, I added some packages into IMAGE_INSTALL, such as boost, thrift, etc. I notice in the target OS image, the shared libs don't the symlinks. But in the SDK image, the symlinks are there. For example,

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root       22 Oct  2 16:41 libboost_filesystem-mt.so -> libboost_filesystem.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root       29 Oct  2 16:41 libboost_filesystem.so -> libboost_filesystem.so.1.75.0

Is there a way to add the symlinks to the target image as well?


With the symlinks, I assume we can run an old application even the dependent lib is a newer version?


Thanks,

Lijun
