libX11.so.6 -link there but 'cannot find' error

libX11.so.6 -link there but 'cannot find' error

Post by Jung K » Fri, 09 Dec 1994 13:15:39



  Like several other people here, I'm having a problem with the above
library.  I am running(well, trying to run) Xfree3.1. When I type
'startx' I get the error "xinit: cannot find library libX11.so.6"

  I've checked for the file and it exists as a link to libX11.so.6.0.
The directory(/usr/X11R6/lib) is in my path statement in my
.profile directory.  Since all the scripts seems to run under /bin/sh
this is the file that I need to worry about, correct?

Does anybody see what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Jung H Kim

  Well, have you checked /etc/ld.so.conf ? Make sure /usr/X11R6/lib is in
  that file. That file specifies where should the ld.so look for libs.

Did you include /usr/X11R6/lib in your /etc/ld.so.conf and run ldconfig [-v]?

That was exactly the problem.  Thanks to everyone for helping me out.
