How to modify the library path variable?


Hi, How can i modify the path variable of the .so files?
.so are libraries right?
Where is the file that contains the path? I know how to modify the bin variable, it is in .bashrc , is there a file similar to this one for libraries??

Thanks in advance

The file /etc/ld.so.conf contains a list of paths (separated by newlines) that will be searched by ldconfig for libraries. You can edit it and add (or remove) a few lines and then run ldconfig (as root) to update the cache.
