can't find library '

can't find library '

Post by Fulko van Westren » Fri, 29 Dec 1995 04:00:00


I installed Linux Slackware 3.0 with kernel 1.2.13 and I get a strange problem
with a few programs. When I try to start Mosaic 2.6b1 I get
        can't find library ''
But 'find' gives me
/usr/X11R6/lib is on my path. Does anyone know what to do? I need to solve
this to get Mosiac and, more important, Open GL running. X seems to run A-OK,
exept for the xfilemanager.

The libraries may not be visible to the loader There
is a file /etc/ I think, which describes where to
look for libraries. Try a man on that or on I think
the command /sbin/ldconfig -v will tell you what is currently
being picked up. I'm no expert but I hope this helps.

1. can't find library ''


A question from a beginner :

I always get a similar message when trying to run a X-package
Linux kernel is 1.3.18

For instance, I've downloaded Mosaic-linux-2.6.Z with Netscape (Win)
Started Linux and :
- cp /dosc/mosaic~1 /mosaic.z
- gzip -d mosaic.z

Now I have an executable file mosaic

When starting  I receive in subject mentioned error

- find / -name -print
gives me : /usr/X11R6/lib/
and : /usr/i486-linux/lib/

-echo $PATH says :

What else do I have to do ?
