Screwy libraries and things I think might be related...

Something is wrong with my Every now and then, various
programs will spontaneously quit or fail to run, and generate the error
message "cannot map"

This has happened since I tried to install NCSA Mosaic a while ago, and
I tried to make a symlink to the particular file using
MidnightCommander, because Mosaic couldn;t find it and I didn;t want to
edit my path. (stupid, I know) I have tried to get dselect to reinstall
it. I have even mannaged to get it to report success. I have used the
source files on my CD to manually recompile my Libc5 package. The errors
persist. I think that they are also causing a severe problem with
dselect in which dselect is utterly unable to install my sound drivers,
or even completely uninstall them now that it has tried to install them.
I am stumped. As near as I can tell, just about every program on my
machine needs these libraries, and they don't seem to work. Can anybody
help me?



1. This clone I stupid, or am I right?


I admire your passion, Chris..

The only issues which have kept myself from looking seriously at Linux
would be:

* It's Unix and the learning curve to start getting productive strikes me
as probably very steep

* It doesn't support plug-and-play.  If your hardware doesn't have Linux
drivers, it don't play..

* Not nearly the amount of developers out there doing stuff for Linux as
there are for Wintel.  Can I get MS Office for Linux?  Can I get
Photoshop for Linux?  Can I get QuarkXpress for Linux? etc.. a big turn
off for me.
