aspell problems
 
I installed the latest version of aspell today, but am having problems.

When I try to run aspell or install dictionaries it tells me: aspell: error while loading shared libraries: libaspell.so.15: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The file exists

Code:

[root@box etc]# locate libaspell.so.15
/root/aspell/aspell-0.60.2/.libs/libaspell.so.15.1.2
/root/aspell/aspell-0.60.2/.libs/libaspell.so.15
/usr/local/lib/libaspell.so.15.1.2
/usr/local/lib/libaspell.so.15

I did run the make install and everything like the directions say.

Code:

[root@box etc]# ls /usr/local/lib/libaspell.*
/usr/local/lib/libaspell.la  /usr/local/lib/libaspell.so  /usr/local/lib/libaspell.so.15  /usr/local/lib/libaspell.so.15.1.2

I am running redhat 8 (old yes, but its a dedicated server and I dont want to screw it up upgrading remotely).

Code:

[root@box etc]# uname -a
Linux box.p44.org 2.4.20-28.8 #1 Thu Dec 18 13:05:06 EST 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

any help would be appreciated.

I see you've installed it in /usr/local
Is /usr/local/lib listed in /etc/ld.so.conf

Code:

[root@box root]# cat /etc/ld.so.conf
/usr/kerberos/lib
/usr/X11R6/lib
/usr/lib/mysql
/usr/local/lib
/usr/local/ssl/lib
