[SOLVED] Inconsistency detected by ld.so
I dont think this error is specific to gentoo, but that's the os so here I am.
There are suddenly a lot of apps on my gentoo box that throw the error:
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: ../sysdeps/i386/dl-machine.h: 648: elf_machine_rel_relative: Assertion `((reloc->r_info) & 0xff) == 8' failed!
I havent checked the box in months and today needed to do some changes in samba and smbd and ntpd gave that error. I went to run emerge to see if my samba needed updating and it also threw the exact error. My apache2 does as well. I cant really list all of the apps that are throwing this error since there are so many. I'm afraid to reboot since I expect a kernel panic.
I ran ld.so to see if I could diagnose a little.

I can only guess a emerge update was done months ago without a reboot so the services kept running even though the ones emerged failed badly. That's just a guess but I don't know how to recover this since even emerge is throwing the error and will not run.
Maybe something is wrong with /lib/ld-linux.so.2? I honestly have no clue.

This guy claims he had bad RAM that caused this error....it may be helpful to run memtest overnight, if you can.

After taking the time to stand up a replacement linux box and swapping it out for the oddly behaving one, did a lot of troubleshooting without any success.
But I now felt confident to try a reboot since my entire network wasn't relying on this machine anymore. I had the latest gentoo cd ready incase a rebuild was going to be necessary. System powered down then back up and... it worked. That's all it took was a power cycle. I have to assume some bad weather a few weeks back or maybe a sun spot (/shrug) caused a temporary issue. The box is not only on battery backup but also a secondary surge protector. Oh well.
Linux boxes can have insane uptimes but I guess eventually they need to be bounced.
FSCK and memtest show no issues. Problem solved.
