Hi every one, I am new to Linux, I have just understood the very basics of the command line and the file system, but I am still having practical problems: Here is the biggest so far:
I just installed IRAF (An Astronomical Image editing sofware) and even though it prompted me with "Successfully installed", when I want to run the application it gives me this error:
/iraf/iraf/bin.linux64/ecl.e: error while loading shared libraries: libtermcap.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Looking around in the internet I saw some users had proposed a symbolic link to libncurses.so.5.7 since it seems ncurses has replaced termcap. But even though I made this link:
$ls -l libtermcap.so.2
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 17 Dec 6 11:04 libtermcap.so.2 -> libncurses.so.5.7
I still get the same error.
I made the same symbolic link, named libtermcap.so.2 in both my /usr/lib/ and /lib/ directories to the /lib/libncurses.so.5.7 since some users had mentioned /usr/lib/ and some /lib/.
Does any one know how I can fix this issue?
Thanks a lot
I am running Fedora 14 (64bit) on my system and this version of IRAF 2.15 is made for 64bit systems.
