Wrong JPEG library version: library is 62, caller expects 80

This is caused by multiple versions of libjpeg installed on the server.

Check for libjpeg in library folders.

Lib folders can be find by checking /etc/ld.so.conf

root@serv02 [/usr/lib]# cat /etc/ld.so.conf
include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf
root@serv02 [/usr/lib]# cd /usr/lib64/

Check version of libjpeg installed

cd /usr/lib64/
ls -la | grep jpeg

cd /usr/local/lib
ls -la | grep jpeg

cd /usr/lib
ls -la | grep jpeg

Folder /usr/lib64/ have libjpeg.so.62.0.0 installed.

root@serv02 [/usr/lib]# cd /usr/lib64/
root@serv02 [/usr/lib64]# ls -la | grep jpeg
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       17 Mar  8 09:54 libjpeg.so -> libjpeg.so.62.0.0*
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       17 Mar  8 09:14 libjpeg.so.62 -> libjpeg.so.62.0.0*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root   138936 Jan  6  2007 libjpeg.so.62.0.0*
root@serv02 [/usr/lib64]#

Folder /usr/local/lib have libjpeg.so.8.3.0 installed

root@serv02 [/usr/local/lib]# ls -la | grep jpeg
drwxr-xr-x  4 uploadin users    12288 Mar  9 11:43 jpeg-8c/
-rw-r--r--  1 root     root    986681 Jan 16 10:22 jpegsrc.v8c.tar.gz

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root     root    968498 Mar  9 11:43 libjpeg.so.8.3.0*
root@serv02 [/usr/local/lib]#

To fix, deleted all libjpeg.so.62.0.0 files

cd /usr/lib64/
rm -f libjpeg.so.*

Now create a symlink

cd /usr/lib64/
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libjpeg.so.8.3.0 libjpeg.so.62

Check what provides libjpeg

yum whatprovides "*/libjpeg.so.62.0.0"

See if libjpeg installed

rpm -qa | grep libjpeg
root@serv02 [/usr/local/lib]# rpm -qa | grep libjpeg
root@serv02 [/usr/local/lib]#

Uninstall libjpeg

rpm -e --nodeps libjpeg-6b-37 libjpeg-devel-6b-37 libjpeg-6b-37

Edit /etc/yum.conf

Disable auto updating libjpeg by adding


in exclude line.
