can't find library 'libX11.so.6'?

can't find library 'libX11.so.6'?

Post by Hee-Joon Pa » Fri, 12 May 1995 04:00:00



I'm trying to play binary distribution of xjewel.

as I ran it, it said "can't find library 'libX11.so.6'".

What is it that I need to do to make it work

on my system.

Any help will be appreciated.

Sincerely yours,

heejoon.

I've checked my

/usr/X11/lib and found

I have

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           15 Nov 28 15:25 libX11.so.3 -> libX11.so.3.1.0*

Do I need to replace this one with new one??

1. "can't find library 'libX11.so.6'"

Well, I seem to be having a problem with XWindows here.. For whatever reason,
the vast majority of programs I attempt to run under Xwindows give me an
error message of some sort; always it's because it can't find or load some
library file..

First off, I'll give a description of what I'm running (briefly):

kernel 2.0.21
Xfree86 3.1.2
fvwm95 2.0.42a

Now, whenever I try and run any program - "xterm", "color_xterm", "xedit",
"xv", etc.. (files which ARE there, btw), I get either:

xv: can't find library 'libX11.so.6'
xtetris: can't find library 'libXaw.so.6'
xterm: can't load library 'libtermcap.so.2'

Now, the problem here is that those library files actually ARE there, and
ldconfig seems to be able to find them - I've done ldconfig -v, and all of
those files come up in there..


check the newsgroups all that often...
