Missing libxv3.so.3.0 in Slackware 3.0 (ELF)

Missing libxv3.so.3.0 in Slackware 3.0 (ELF)

Post by Rob Knubb » Thu, 01 Feb 1996 04:00:00


Recently I upgraded to Slackware 3.0 (which is in ELF format)

For me this meant:
  Linux 1.2.13 -> Linux 1.2.13 ELF
  GCC 2.5.8    -> GCC 2.7.0
  XFree 3.0    -> XFree 3.1.2

I have some applications that I have written with some other students
for SPARC SUN stations. Quite some time ago, I managed to compile and
execute the user interface part of them under Linux (it involved
getting devguide libraries for Linux).

These executables no longer execute! As soon as I start them Linux
says "Cannot find shared library libxv3.so.3.0" (or something like

I have tried:
  A) to put all old libxv libraries from my old Linux distribution in
     the same directory where the nex libxview (new name?!) libraries
     are. Still the same error.
  B) to recompile everything (after getting newer libraries which
     were allowed by GCC 2.7.0 (LEDA 3.3 instead of LEDA 3.1.2).
     I can start the program but get a "segmentation fault".

The programs used to run just fine.

Any suggestions?

1. Problems with libxv3.so.3.0

I am running linux v1.1.93. It was originally installed about 6 months ago
from the release at sunsite, v1.1.54.
I am having problems with libxv3.so.3.0. I am running openwindows, but I can't
use the shelltool or cmdtool, b/c this library is unreadable. I have searched
for quite some time for a good version of it, but haven't found it yet. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
