Program Error after installation


After installing a few programs, when I try to run them from a terminal I get an error (Red Hat 6.1 using GNOME). It says: "
programname: error in loading shared libraries
libgnomeprint.so.11: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory
"

I would assume that I need to download this object file. If so, where can I get it.

Find the location of the .so file:

find / -type f -name libgnomeprint.so*

Take the directory where the so was found and append it to the file /etc/ld.so.conf.

run ldconfig

I have already used the find untility to attempt to locate the file. Those files are not located on my system. Where can I get them so I can put them in a directory to be listed in the /etc/ld.so.conf file

go to www.rpmfind.net and use the search to look for the package that has that file in it (there search engine does this which is soooooo useful)

if you don't use rpm you will at least know which package the file is in. then go to your distro's website to download the package. they should have it there (it might even be on your dosks though you might want to look for the up to date one).

I checked that site out and downloaded the necessary RPMs. When I tried to install them in GnoRPM, I got an error. It is conflicting with another package that was installed. Is there some where to download that one file alone?

Ok. I got past the error. Then I installed the RPM. It went fine. Then I installed a few more because the program required a few other *.so.* files. Then when I was installing one RPM it told me that only packages with major numbers <= 3 are supported by this version of RPM. How do I get around that? Those RPMs are the only ones that I could find that a certain *.so.* file

I just wanted to second this opinion, rpmfind.net is the easiest solution for locating packages and resolving dependencies, you just type in what you problem dependency is and it will tell you what package it is in. If there is anyone out there who hasn't tried this site out is missing out on a great tool.
