    Should I update cache after installing library with `ldconfig -n /xx` command?

  2. NikiC says:

    If I run “ldconfig -p” in my new Centos 7 installation I see 269 entries, but /etc/ld.so.conf include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf which have only two files:

    kernel-3.10.0-123.el7.x86_64.conf (empty)
    mariadb-x86_64.conf (/usr/lib64/mysql)

    Where all that other shared libraries come from???

    Thank you .
