Google Earth will not run 13.37 64 bit and Multi-lib
 
I have installed Google Earth from SlackBuilds. It will not start. The README states you have to make a sym link
Quote:

ln -sf /lib/ld-linux.so.2 /lib/ld-lsb.so.3
As far as I know, the target has to exist, it does not on my system for what ever reason I can not determine. A few commands shows:

Quote:

bash-4.1# ls -l /lib/ld-linux.so.2
ls: cannot access /lib/ld-linux.so.2: No such file or directory
bash-4.1# ls -l /lib/ld-lsb.so.3
ls: cannot access /lib/ld-lsb.so.3: No such file or directory
bash-4.1# updatedb
bash-4.1# locate ld-lsb.so.*
/boot/initrd-tree/lib/ld-lsb.so.3
bash-4.1# file /boot/initrd-tree/lib/ld-lsb.so.3
/boot/initrd-tree/lib/ld-lsb.so.3: broken symbolic link to `/lib/ld-linux.so.2'
I did a removepkg for the compat32, and re-installed, and still do not have /lib/ld-lsb.so.3

How do I fix this?

I followed the instructions here -->http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/ to install multi-lib ( the fast track ).

Working fine here. Slackware64 with multilib

Code:

ls -l /lib/ld-*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 134937 Май 25 04:08 /lib/ld-2.13.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    10 Май 26 11:06 /lib/ld-linux.so.2 -> ld-2.13.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    18 Июн  2 17:31 /lib/ld-lsb.so.3 -> /lib/ld-linux.so.2*

Code:

grep ld-2.13.so /var/adm/packages/*
/var/adm/packages/glibc-2.13_multilib-x86_64-5alien:lib/ld-2.13.so
/var/adm/packages/glibc-2.13_multilib-x86_64-5alien:lib64/incoming/ld-2.13.so
/var/adm/packages/glibc-solibs-2.13_multilib-x86_64-5alien:lib/ld-2.13.so
/var/adm/packages/glibc-solibs-2.13_multilib-x86_64-5alien:lib64/incoming/ld-2.13.so

My system shows:

Quote:

ls -l /lib/ld-*
/bin/ls: cannot access /lib/ld-*: No such file or directory
grep ld-2.13.so /var/adm/packages/*
/var/adm/packages/glibc-2.13-x86_64-4:lib64/incoming/ld-2.13.so
/var/adm/packages/glibc-solibs-2.13-x86_64-4:lib64/incoming/ld-2.13.so
So I know something is wrong. I don't understand how to fix it. Can someone advise?

dolphin77 07-01-2011 08:34 AM

it looks like you didn't upgrade glibc and glibc-solibs with appropriate _multilib packages from Alien Bob.

I would advise you to read http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/README

There are step by step instructions there on how to properly update your system to become multilib

camorri 07-01-2011 08:46 AM

Those are the instructions I followed. Unfortunately, I must have messed something up. I have gone around this thing for a long time, I guess I don't see the error in my way.

I have the solibs along with the other packages.

This is what shows, for the .txz files.

to install the gcc and glibc stuff. I don't understand what I did wrong.

camorri,

Look at my post here for some pointers on the issues I also ran in too.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-issue-888765/

I would also advice to uninstall your current multilib pkgs and let the scripts from Sebastien do the work.

You will need multilib and compat32 from

http://multilibpkg.sourceforge.net/
http://compat32pkg.sourceforge.net/

and look at this post for instructions:


http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...7/#post4310982

Note: Change the version from 13.1 to 13.37 in your case. It worked for me :)
Good Luck

Did you re-install the graphics card driver after you went multi-lib?

Thats only if he is running proprietary drives such as nvidia.... I dont think he has mention that he is using any type of specific driver.... And if he all ready installed the driver and chose to install 32bit compatibility libs at the time of install than he should be fine. In my case I had a bad install.

Yes. I think I did the Nvidia driver after the multi-lib install.

Beggin' yer pardon, but I think has got me into a lot of trouble in the past. :D
If your not sure I'd reinstall the driver just so that can be eliminated. I done this same little boo boo more than once. The Nvidia driver must go in after the multi-libs.

That I agree with :)

I have some concerns on the correct way to remove the multi-lib installation I have now.

Does it matter which packages I remove first? I suspect I should remove the compat32 layer first, and then the 64 bit layer next.

I'm concerned that removing the 64 bit code will leave the system broken, if I use 'removepkg *.t?z in the directory where I downloaded the gcc and glibc packages.

Could someone guide me here?

I have installed the two packages at these links.

I will re-install the nvidia driver after I have used the above tools to install the 64 bit and 32 bit layers.

You can do:

removepkg /var/log/packages/*compat32*

SeRi@lDiE 07-02-2011 11:23 PM

Look at this post.

camorri 07-03-2011 08:05 AM

Could you post the link? I would be happy to look at it.

Thank-you in advance.
