Different versions package from different user

Hi all
I'm working with Debian squeeze with kernel 2.6.34
the problem is that after some change in the and envirormental variables (this I did to make working the compiled mesa, dri, and video card driver)
from normal user I see a version of libraries and some software , but from root I see a different version, tipically older.
What I did wrong adding these paths?

Thank you

I guess you mean /etc/
Regarding the env. variables (PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, PKG_CONFIG_PATH...), if you have added them in user's ~/.profile, or ~/.bashrc, they are not available for other users. You can add them in /etc/profile if you want everyone to use them.
