libexif.so.8 not a shared object file


When i tried to install gtkam on slakcware i got this messange:
libexif.so is not a shared object file (Type: 768)

This might be because those .so files were installed from an RPM from the wrong architecutre? They might not be recognized if you installed a sparc RPM on an x86 system for example. What was the RPM file that you instaled named, and what is your system?

I can't provide much to you here, but for future reference, convert rpms and install them like so:
Code:
rpm2tgz rpmname.rpm
su
installpkg rpmname.tgz
