can't load dynamic linker '/lib/'

can't load dynamic linker '/lib/'

Post by BERG, MILO DOUGL » Sun, 20 Mar 1994 18:09:00


In trying to execute the pecompiled program "xli", which I downloaded
from, I get the error message " can't load dynamic linker
 '/lib/'".  I tried using the command "ln /lib/ /xli" without
result.  Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

Thanks for your help.

1. Can't load dynamic linker '/lib/'

I am using the Slackware 2.0.0 to install Linux 1.1.18.  This is being done on
a 486 with 8meg, and on a system that has OS/2 and MSDOS currently installed.

I made a primary partition for Linux (100meg) and a 5meg swapfile on a logical
partition (yes, it's small---too small?).  This I did with OS/2's fdisk.

I then went through the installation process with the Slackware boot and
install disks.  I tagged the partitions as 82 & 83, and formatted them within
the installation process.

When I boot up, I get to OS/2 boot manager, where I select the Linux option.
Lilo starts up, but gets hung on loading the dynamic linker:

    init: can't load dynamic linker '/lib/'

I did place LILO in the superblock during setup, and chose for it to load

Is this linker missing from that distribution?  If so, how would I properly
uncompress it.

Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated

Thank you.
