Systemcheck wont load/work on debian 12 (next release)

Tested installing kicksecure-gui in debian stable 11 then upgraded to 12 then check systemcheck if it will run i got this message:

sudo: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Also solved by this?

sadly no.

And since systemcheck fail, it will make kicksecure setup wizard fail as well: (skip to finish directly)

I can reproduce on ppc64le as a result of distro-morphing Debian Bookworm to Kicksecure. Not sure how to fix it though. Comparing Bullseye to Bookworm:

That library was moved from /usr/lib/sudo/ to /usr/libexec/sudo/. Given the nature of libexec, it sounds like Systemcheck shouldn’t be using it since Systemcheck isn’t part of sudo?

systemcheck internally uses sudo. But without any fancy stuff. It’s just a big compilation of standard system commands. So this most likely can (and need to) be reduced to a command that would also fail outside of system check.

You could enable bash xtrace with the handy --debug switch.

systemcheck --debug

Full log probably not required. Just the last few lines before the error. Once that’s nailed down, probably the bug can be reproduced without systemcheck.
