sharedobject-in-library-directory-missing-soname

All reports of sharedobject-in-library-directory-missing-soname for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

A shared object was identified in a library directory (a directory in the standard linker path) which doesn't have a SONAME. This is usually an error.

SONAMEs are set with something like gcc -Wl,-soname,libfoo.so.0, where 0 is the major version of the library. If your package uses libtool, then libtool invoked with the right options should be doing this.

To view the SONAME of a shared library, run readelf -d on the shared library and look for the tag of type SONAME.

Severity: important, Certainty: possible

Check: shared-libs, Type: binary, udeb
