to find a file:

locate xxx (where xxx is name of file)

if locate returns no result then su to root and type updatedb
this will take a few minutes to complete
then exit back to user
and retype locate xxx

you then need to add the appropriate paths to the appropriate file

Add the path, so if it turned up in /usr/lib then add /usr/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf

Not the full filename path, just the directory path. So, if you locate:
library.so
And it returns:
/usr/lib/library.so
Add:
/usr/lib
To your /etc/ld.so.conf file NOT:
/usr/lib/library.so

After adding/updating your ld.so.conf run:
ldconfig (as root)

Cool
