Bug Description

The ycmd server stops every time I load vim, with this error:

2015-01-05 18:31:01,154 - DEBUG - Global extra conf not loaded or no function YcmCorePreload
Traceback (most recent call last):

RuntimeError: Error importing ycm_core. Are you sure you have placed a version 3.2+ libclang.[so|dll|dylib] in folder "/usr/lib/vim-youcompleteme"? See the Installation Guide in the docs. Full error: libclang.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've tried symlinking /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libclang-3.4.so into /usr/lib/vim-youcompleteme as libclang-3.4.so, linclang.so and libclang.so.1 but nothing works. The docs suggest that the path has to be set when compiling the plugin so I think this needs to be fixed in the package.

This bug was cured by installing libclang-dev, which is based on clang 3.5. I had some clang 3.4 packages already installed, and had installed libclang-3.4-dev too, but that doesn't seem to work with this vim-youcompleteme package, presumably because it was compiled with 3.5. So I think the package just needs its dependencies fixed to make sure the correct version of clang is installed at run-time.
