you've probably not got the eaxct .so file it wants. you *should* be able to get away with just linking the near equivalent file .so.1.9.5 maybe...?
yeah.. from rpmfind.net...
Quote:
/lib/ld-linux.so.1
/lib/ld-linux.so.1.9.5
/lib/ld.so
/lib/ld.so.1.9.5
/lib/libdl.so.1.9.5
/usr/man/man1/ldd.1.gz
/usr/man/man3/dlclose.3.gz
/usr/man/man3/dlerror.3.gz
/usr/man/man3/dlopen.3.gz
/usr/man/man3/dlsym.3.gz
/usr/man/man8/ld.so.8.gz
/usr/man/man8/ldconfig.8.gz
so ln -s'ing .1.9.5 to .1 should do the trick no problem
