I've recently installed Slackware (i believe 3.1, comes with XFree 3.1.2
and gcc 2.7.0).
I needed to update both of those packages, so I've downloaded the X and D
disk sets from the slackware distribution on Sunsite. I ran setup to
install the packages, and
everything seemed to be going fine.
Later in the evening, I noticed the following errors at boot
ldconfig: warning: can't unling /usr/X11R6/lib (Operation not permitted)
ldconfig: warning: can't unling /usr/lib (Operation not permitted)
Now, when i try to run startx, xinit can't load libXmu.so.6, which is in
/usr/X11R6/lib. I've looked in ld.so.conf, and /usr/X11R6/lib is in there,
is not. Both directories are owned by root, and i run out of gas there.
linking libXmu.so.6 in /lib, and xinit can then load it, but then bombs on
It sounds like a permission problem, but I'm not sure where to look.
