can't find library ''?

can't find library ''?

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 ''".

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

on my system.

Any help will be appreciated.

Sincerely yours,


I've checked my

/usr/X11/lib and found

I have

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           15 Nov 28 15:25 ->*

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

1. "can't find library ''"

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 ''
xtetris: can't find library ''
xterm: can't load library ''

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...
