Cool how to check libraries you have quickly?


i had to use the smiley face w/ the sunglasses, it's too stupid. that said, i am confused as to how i would check which versions of what libraries i have in a timely manner. i don't know of a single location where these are stored on slack, so that would be a quick answer to my question.

the reason i ask this is b/c i want to check the presence/version of a list of required libraries, so time spent fishing for libraries on a list of ~20 libraries could be considerable. any suggestions are welcome.

the sunglasses rool,
y-p

libraries are stored in /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib

I suggest you use CheckInstall to make slackpacks out of programs you compile from source, because that will keep track of versions for you.

Other than that, its sometimes hard to tell what version you have installed.

sometimes the libraries have the version in there names though.
