Sub_title: /lib/libblkid.so.1: version `BLKID_2.21' not found
 

I am running Precise-5.5 Live on AMD 2800+ 4GB RAM and wanted to create a 4GB Swap file:

Code:
dd if=/dev/zero of=swapfile bs=1M count=4000


Code:
mkswap swapfile


and received this error message:

mkswap: /lib/libblkid.so.1: version `BLKID_2.21' not found (required by mkswap)

None the less the lib is present in /lib/

Is there a patch out there for this?

--------------------------------------------------------------

SOLVED:

Since libblkid is part of util-linux, i downloaded:

http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/u/util-linux/util-linux_2.20.1.orig.tar.gz

Code:
tar xfz util-linux_2.20.1.orig.tar.gz


Code:
cd util-linux-2.20.1


Code:
./configure && make && make install


cd to swapfile directory

Code:
mkswap swapfile


Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 4194300 KiB
no label, UUID=WhatEverNumbersDashesAndLetters


Cheers,

PsiKlops

Kool Thanx.

Does my way of solving this Issue apply to be correct ? Or does it impose security or other issues ? Better said, is it better to upgrade util-linux using your suggested method ?

Cheers,
