How to find missing libraries without LD_LIBRARY_PATH
« on: August 22, 2006, 12:41:03 am »
Hi, everyone,

I'm newbie to linux and today I spent a lot of time fighting to "missing libraries".
I tried all means to set "LD_LIBRARY_PATH" env var, with no success (on Fedora 5).
Just now, I found an excellent article that explains why not use the above env var and how to resolve any problem with "missing libraries". It is the definitive solution and DO NOT use LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

It's title is "CLI Magic: ldconfig and friends" and the author is Joe Barr.
EVERYONE MUST READ IT.
Link to the article is:

Good luck...

Read this one http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Program-Library-HOWTO/index.html and tell me what you think
Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code.
