Hi, I have unpacked the t gar.gz for a game called FreeTumble, when I try to run the game with './FreeTumble' in the console (rxvt) I get the following error message: ./FreeTumble: error while loading shared libaries: libsfml-graphics.so.1.5: can not open shared object file: no such file or directory.
I have tried to look for the libsfml package with no luck, I think I need to find this package and save/install it in the /lib folder.
Sorry I didn't mention the puppy version its Puppy 4.3.1. I have installed the files you suggested but unfortunately the error now reads './FreeTumble: error while loading shared libraries: libGLEW.so.1.5: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory.
I searched on the Ubuntu package site but it failed to find the needed file.
But if the glibc still is that old, I doubt you can use the files.
Only 'Ubuntu Lucid' and Mandriva 2010.(1) has the sfml + SOIL files
in the required versions.
sfml + SOIL : Tricky to build, but it's doable.
But first we need to know the glibc / libc'6' version.
Thanks for your continued help it is much appreciated. After typing ls -l /lib/libc.so.6 at the console I got the response: libc-2.6.1.so. Installed the libglew 1.5 package but unfortunately there is yet another error: same as before but reference to: libGLU.so.1.
I couldn't find libGLEW.1.5 on the Ubuntu site, am I using in the wrong way? It seems that it is necessary to search for these files from time to time but I seem to draw a blank when I search for them!
I tried again to search for the required packake 'libglu' and got a result by searching for 'package names', downloaded and installed 'libglu1-mesa_7.7.1-1ubuntu2_i386.deb' now I have a list of new errors (5 of).
Thank you for your help but I can't ask you to do any more for me, I will make some further studies on dependencies and maybe find another small game that I can learn from.
