problem with audio players


Hello all...

I'm not a big fan of xmms, so I'm trying out a couple other players, namely amarok and juk. I'm running FC3. Neither was installed on my system so I recently installed both. When I try to start juk from a command line I get the following error:

juk: error while loading shared libraries: libid3-3.8.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I had to install libid3-3.8.so.2 as a dependancy for juk, so it is installed:

[root@optiplex Incoming]# whereis libid3-3.8.so.2
libid3-3.8.so: /usr/local/lib/libid3-3.8.so.2

Has anyone seen this error before? Also, when I try to play any songs in Amarok, nothing happens. If I double click a song in the left pane, it says "some URLs could not be loaded" at the bottom. I do have working sound and can play my mp3s with xmms fine. Also, my mp3s are on a mounted share on a W2K3 server. Thanks in advance.

just a guess, but did you run ldconfig (as root) after installing libid3?

I hadn't done that, but when I try to run ldconfig, I get a command not found. Any other ideas?

To run ldconfig, you need to be root, because its located in /sbin which is a path thats out of bounds to ordinary users.

If you changed to root using "su" then you don't inherit roots full APTH, so you have to do /sbin/ldconfig, if you change to root however, using "su -" you should be able to just run it as "ldconfig".

if this is the case it seems broken to me and should be fixed
try exporting PATH from /root/.bashrc
or in your userhame/.bashrc or .bash_profile you can put a section
Code:
if [ `whoami` = "root" ]; then

fi
