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: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The file exists


[root@box etc]# locate

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


[root@box etc]# ls /usr/local/lib/libaspell.*
/usr/local/lib/  /usr/local/lib/  /usr/local/lib/  /usr/local/lib/

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


[root@box etc]# uname -a
Linux 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/
