Do they exist? ('locate libXaw.so.6' or 'find / -iname
libXmu.so.6 -print')
(on my system, they are in /usr/X11R6/lib, there is also an
a.out version in /usr/i486-linuxaout/lib)

They are symbolic links to the real library files, ie:
libXaw.so.6 --> libXaw.so.6.0 (If the links don't exist, but
the libs do, make the link 'ln -sf
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXaw.so.6.0 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXaw.so.6',
-- 'man ln' for more info)

If they exist, is the directory they are in, included in
/etc/ld.so.conf ?

If you needed to add them to the /etc/ld.so.conf, then did
you run ldconfig as root?

When I try to run startx, xinit, xterm, etc. I get the message

   xinit: can't load library 'libXaw.so.6'  or

   xinit: can't load library 'libXmu.so.6'

Anyone have any ideas of what might be happening?  Thanks very much.

1. Error-> xterm: can't load library '//libXaw.so.3'

I loaded TAMU.99p12 and everthing seems to work now.  X works great as root,
but when I startx from a user account, I get the following error and xterm
refuses to start:

        xterm: can't load library '//libXaw.so.3'
               No such library.

The library DOES exist and it has the correct perms.  Also, my environment
variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/X386/lib.

What's happening here?  Anybody have a clue?  Thanks for any help.
