libgcc_s.so.1 must be installed for pthread_cancel to work
If you get the following error/warning on any apps suddenly:
"libgcc_s.so.1 must be installed for pthread_cancel to work"
Then is is normally due to an upgrade caused by some distro's having a conflict with the library paths.
You will need to find the "libgcc_s.so.1" (you might be using a different version) and add it's path to LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. As follows:
locate libgcc_s /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib
You will need to put this in the startup script to make this change permenant.
