PGP Command Line


When attempting to execute a PGP command on certain platforms, you may receive an error concerning the libgcc, libxml or some other library. pgp: fatal: version `GCC_4.2.0' not found (required by file /opt/pgp/lib/

or pgp: fatal: version 'LIBXML2_2.6.0' not found (required by file /opt/pgp/bin/pgp) pgp: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory


This error appears because the system by default using different version of the library rather than the version shipped with PGP Command Line. 


Ensure that respective library shipped with PGP is used by default when running pgp. For this alter the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable for the user that will be executing PGP commands.  You can alter the path in the user's environment by adding the following to the shell login scripts:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/pgp/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH



Alternately, you can create a wrapper script that sets the path when you run PGP as described in this article:
