linuxdeploy-x86_64.AppImage --appdir AppDir --output appimage
I get the following error message:
-- Deploying dependencies for existing files in AppDir --
Deploying dependencies for ELF file AppDir/usr/bin/myapp
ERROR: Could not find dependency: ../lib/libtbb.so.2
ERROR: Failed to deploy dependencies for existing files
where …/lib/libtbb.so.2 is a dependency of libembree.so.2 which is itself a dependency of myapp.
I think that as …/lib/libtbb.so.2 is not an absolute path, the shared lib is not found by linuxdeploy system (libtbb.so.2 is well present in AppDir/usr/lib).
Do you have a workaround for that ? Something that may help linuxdeploy find the libtbb.so.2 ?
I solved the problem by doing:
- Specifying an additional absolute path to myapp toward the location of embree.so.2 and libtbb.so.2 at link time:
- Removing the dependency from embree.so.2 to libtbb.so.2 using patchelf:
patchelf --remove-needed libtbbmalloc.so.2 libembree.so.2
This work, but I don’t like very much the step 2 as I am not the embree provider and I would prefer not alter their data.
