psql: error while loading shared libraries: libpq.so.rh-postgresql95-5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Well heck:

-bash-4.2$ psql
psql: error while loading shared libraries: libpq.so.rh-postgresql95-5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
-bash-4.2$

So let's see what's going on:

[root@ovirt01 ~]# find / -iname libpq.so*
/usr/lib64/libpq.so.5
/usr/lib64/libpq.so.5.5
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root/usr/lib64/libpq.so.rh-postgresql95-5
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root/usr/lib64/libpq.so.rh-postgresql95-5.8
[root@ovirt01 ~]#

So we can see it's in the lib64 path.  And within the root postgres folder, we see that usr/lib is empty that lib points too:

[root@ovirt01 root]# find / -iname psql
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root/usr/bin/psql
[root@ovirt01 root]# pwd
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root
[root@ovirt01 root]# ls -altrid lib
201829110 lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 7 Feb 12 11:08 lib -> usr/lib
[root@ovirt01 root]# pwd
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root
[root@ovirt01 root]# ls -altri usr/lib/
total 4
134420487 dr-xr-xr-x.  2 root root    6 Feb 16  2016 .
 67638534 drwxr-xr-x. 13 root root 4096 Feb 12 11:08 ..
[root@ovirt01 root]#

So obviously, nothing that uses usr/lib/ will get anything useful out of it.  But the following path under the same folder above has lot's of usefull things:

[root@ovirt01 root]# ls -altrid lib64
201829111 lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 9 Feb 12 11:08 lib64 -> usr/lib64
[root@ovirt01 root]#

Since the lib folder doesn't have anything useful in it, a simple solution is to link lib to usr/lib64 instead.  So let's do that.  Sure enough:

201829110 lrwxrwxrwx.  1 root root    9 Apr 15 00:56 lib -> usr/lib64

And here we go again:

-bash-4.2$ strace psql

) = 130
exit_group(127)                         = ?
+++ exited with 127 +++
-bash-4.2$

 

So we need to add it to the default library path.  Easy enough:

[root@ovirt01 ld.so.conf.d]#
[root@ovirt01 ld.so.conf.d]# cat postgres-x86_64.conf
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root/lib
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root/lib64
[root@ovirt01 ld.so.conf.d]# ldconfig
[root@ovirt01 ld.so.conf.d]# strings /etc/ld.so.cache |grep -Ei postgresql95
libpq.so.rh-postgresql95-5
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root/lib64/libpq.so.rh-postgresql95-5
libpgtypes.so.rh-postgresql95-3
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root/lib64/libpgtypes.so.rh-postgresql95-3
libecpg_compat.so.rh-postgresql95-3
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root/lib64/libecpg_compat.so.rh-postgresql95-3
libecpg.so.rh-postgresql95-6
/opt/rh/rh-postgresql95/root/lib64/libecpg.so.rh-postgresql95-6
[root@ovirt01 ld.so.conf.d]#

And let's try again.  And sure enough, we have a winner:

-bash-4.2$
-bash-4.2$ psql
psql (9.5.9)
Type "help" for help.
