Povray help


Hi all

I have a problem with povray where when i try to render an object it tells me that libpng.so.2 doesnt exist , where can i get this lib for slack 9.1 .
I currently have libpng.so.3 installed and if i manage to get 2 will it effect the workings of the program etc...

Thanx

well libpng shows up on my slack 9.1 like this in /usr/lib........
Code:
bash-2.05b# ls -la libpng.*
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           10 Feb 22 12:42 libpng.a -> libpng12.a
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           11 Feb 22 12:42 libpng.so -> libpng.so.3
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           17 Feb 22 13:04 libpng.so.3 -> libpng.so.3.1.2.5
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       171448 Sep 17  2003 libpng.so.3.1.2.5
the only place where libpng.so.2 shows up is /usr/local/games/tuxracer!!
Code:
bash-2.05b# ls -la libpng.so.*
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       131560 Mar  5 20:03 libpng.so.2
bash-2.05b#

Downgrading libraries allways seems to cause problems. I would check out if there is a newer version of povray that works with libpng.so.3
