error while loading shared libraries: libgvc.so.3: cannot open shared object file


Hi,

I think there's a problem with my shared libraries, is there any way to troubleshoot it? Anyone can help? I was trying to make install on graphviz when this happened

Same thing happened when I was trying to run the net-snmp daemon as well.

Thanks in advance.

Regards
Jason

Sounds like there's a missing library. I don't use graphviz, but is there a README or INSTALL file with the sources that details the dependencies?

I doubt it's the graphviz problem, more like unable to retrieve nor access the shared lib problem.

I didn't say it was a problem with graphviz - I said that the docs that come with graphviz should have information about what needs to be installed on your system for you to be able to compile it.

If you compiled a program from source usaully it has a default --prefix=/usr/local and the dirctory name of the application will be appended when you installed the system at that prefix to become /usr/local/appname. Then all of the binaries (bin and sbin) and including libraries & includes are all there with 'lib' and 'include' directory names.

Even they are there installed, you will still need to add that path in /etc/ld.so.conf to enable the dynamic linker to find it on the cache.

# echo /usr/local/appname/lib >> /etc/ld.so.conf
# ldconfig

Try ldd /path/to/libgvc.so.3 and check to make sure that it is in /etc/ld.so.conf. If you need to add it to ld.so.conf run ldconfig afterwards. Run ldconfig -p to see what libraries are linked.

I don't know if you're still trying to get around this problem, but I ran into the same thing. In order to fix it, I had to make some symlinks. Once I did that, the make install worked fine.

Here are the symlinks I had to make:

Code:
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libgvc.so.3 /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libgraph.so.3 /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libcdt.so.3 /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libpathplan.so.3 /usr/lib/
