"libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to" When Applying Forms Patch (Doc ID 1923486.1)

Last updated on JULY 10, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Stack - Version 12.1.2 to 12.1.3 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
/usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__stack_chk_fail@GLIBC_2.4'
/usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__fprintf_chk@GLIBC_2.3.4'
/usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__sprintf_chk@GLIBC_2.3.4'

Symptoms

Applying <Patch 6400501> (per forms upgrade <Note 437878.1> Oracle Database 11g need to download <Patch 6400501> for Database 10.1.0.5, and apply it to the OracleAS 10.1.2 Oracle Home) and getting the following errors:

/usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__stack_chk_fail@GLIBC_2.4'
/usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__fprintf_chk@GLIBC_2.3.4'
/usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__sprintf_chk@GLIBC_2.3.4'



Several documents suggest to change a link in /usr/lib (i.e. Doc ID 761566.1)

unlink /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libXtst.so.6.1 /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6

Eventhough the work around works, the work around could get overwritten after OS RPM patching and could cause problems for other software running on the server.
