libGLcore.so.1 in red hat 8


can any one help me please? i downloaded an msn client which requires the libGLcore.so.1 library in red hat. i have searched google.com/linux for a long time, but i cant find anywhere to download the file. where can i get this file from and how would i install it? i have NO experience using the 'make' command, and i have only been using linux for about 6 weeks. please help.

Try searching for it on rpmfind.net, I think it had 5 results and might be a part of the NVIDIA GLX package..

Have you tried any other alternatives like GAIM, which works great and flawlessly with MSN Messenger service ? That is what I would recommend myself.

i use gaim at the mo. it crashes tho, and doesn't have features like change alias. i am looking for a replacement for gaim, and i came across kmess, so i thought i would try it, but i cant get it to work.

red hat comes with a java virtual machine. but the java msn client on source forge cant find java. any idea's how i could fix that? or would i have to download the JRE from sun? i cant compile source files either, because i dont know how.

Hmmm.. my gaim never crashes, what version are you using ?
I wouldn't personally mess with a chat client that needed java IMHO. That seems like it would get too messy and hassle to just get a simple chat client up. Find out your version of gaim is, might just need a simple upgrade or downgrade.
To find version just type:

gaim --version

From a terminal or command line.

im gonna upgrade to gaim 0.59.6

anyway, how is there a way to optimize my dial up in linux? (windows is configured for lan's, so internet connection suffers, unless the reg settings are changed, is linux the same?)

Make sure you have the KDE environment installed. KMess sounds like a KDE app. That'll probably put any libs you need on it.

I don't know why an MSN Messenger app would need OpenGL, so it sounds like one of those dumb "link to everything" kde things.

No, it wouldn't.

Run:

/sbin/ldconfig -p | grep GLcore

and see what it prints. If it prints something, you have that lib, if it doesn't, you need to find it (it'll prolly be on a CD)

good question. google shows that they are apparently a part of XFree GLX. Make sure you have Mesa installed. It's also provided as part of the nVidia binary drivers, if you're using such a card.

I'm going home back down to Malvern on Jan 3rd so send me an email (mike%theoretic-com) pestering me about this, I'll look it up on my system (rpm will tell you which package owns which file).
