Hello all, bare with me here im new to linux and this forum.
ok, im attempting to install VLC player in order to play media files,
as i am installing the rpms one by one in the terminal and one fails because it needs libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3.4) , i cant seem to find that file (i searched using google and actually found many posts of people asking for the file) so a friend of mine suggested that i link libc.so.4 (which is what i have apparently) to libc.so.6
so i whip out my linux command book..
and type in:# ln -s libc.so.4 libc.so.6
and the system tells me:
ln: `libc.so.6': File exists
now, im not sure whether this is telling me that the file already existed or that if it successfully linked the file but in short when i ls the lib directory, there is infact a file there called libc.so.6
this is good, i quietly sat and thought to myself, but alas...
...the only problem is when i go to install the rpm it greets me with the same error (regarding the dependancy) im really out of ideas now any and all input would be much appreaciated, thankyou for reading.
make sure it is in your $PATH, you can check your /etc/ld.so.conf and make sure that the directory its in is in the search path, the after inserting it do a #ldconfig and try it again. Or you can
and just for shits n giggles #ldconfig again.
