Problems installing Enlightenment e17


Well, here goes:
Just finished installing slackware today (hooray!)
I find it interesting using the terminal and all, but as far as the desktop goes, enlightenment is what I'll be using. Found the Slacke17 project and went ahead with a max install. Now everything should be ready to go, or so they say!
and here's the thing: any time /usr/bin/enlightenment_start trys to open, it returns with a "file or directory not found" even though it IS there, confirmed various different ways. I do have executable permissions.

One thing I have tried so far is linking /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 back to /lib/ld-lsb.so.3 As I read somewhere else this could cause the same symptoms? (64 bit installation btw)

Anyways, any help would be appreciated!

Are you mixing 32-bit and 64-bit binaries perhaps?

Can you confirm that:

- You are using Slackware64 13.37?
- You downloaded slacke17-r66703-x86_64.tar?
- You don't have intrusive third-party packages (Gnome, multilibs, etc...)?

Please post the output of:
$ file /usr/bin/enlightenment_start
and:
$ ldd /usr/bin/enlightenment_start

As Alien Bob said, it looks like a problem of 32/64 bits mix.

well, I confirmed that it is a Slackware64, however today I tried installing E17 from source using easy_e17.sh script. Aside from a few of the "extra" packages not compiling, it went smoothly. Looking back at the downloaded file I was using, it WAS a 32 bit file. Ouch.
Thanks for the help!
