When developing for native platform, I can use ldd to list all the shared libraries (.so files) a binary executable I build will try to load upon start-up. But when cross-compiling, I don't know how to get the same information. The
is there any way to get a list of the dynamically linked dependency for of a foreign binary
You can list direct dependencies of a binary easily enough:
readelf -d a.out | grep NEEDED 0x0000000000000001 (NEEDED) Shared library: [librt.so.1] 0x0000000000000001 (NEEDED) Shared library: [libc.so.6]
I know of no way to recursively continue this to get the full list (as
ldd does). You'll have to repeat the process for every
NEEDED library by hand.
