Jemalloc error on new app

Hi, I’ve been trying to deploy an app and I keep seeing this in the logs and on ssh ERROR: object '/usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored

I’ve followed the guides and it doesn’t seem to work. What I’m doing wrong ?

For reference here’s my Dockerfile:

# syntax = docker/dockerfile:1

# Make sure RUBY_VERSION matches the Ruby version in .ruby-version and Gemfile
FROM ruby:$RUBY_VERSION-slim as base

LABEL fly_launch_runtime="rails"

# Entrypoint prepares the database.

# Start the server by default, this can be overwritten at runtime
CMD ["./bin/rails", "server"]

You are running on a Mac M1/M2. Try the following:

bin/rails generate dockerfile --platform=linux/amd64

Usually for debian images I use LD_PRELOAD="" and Linux is capable of resolving the lib prefix.

Thanks! Let Linux resolve the path to jemalloc · fly-apps/dockerfile-rails@85822c2 · GitHub

awesome, it worked thanks!

At this point, dockerfile-rails is probably one of the most useful gems in the rails world!

Thanks! Real world usage is a great way to converge on something useful.

Somebody reports a problem. Somebody suggests a change to their Dockerfile to solve the problem. Somebody changes the generator to incorporate this change so future users won’t have this problem.

In general, computers are good at if checks.

In the future, feel free to be the person who changes the generator. Pull requests welcome!
