Shared library Porblem


Well, I had some weird problems compiling glut for my Slackware box - so I took the risk and took the suse compiled ones and copied them to /usr/lib. It worked - tuxracer compiled fine using these libraries, but next morning, when booting up I get the errormessage :
ldconfig: libglut.so.3 is not a symbolic link.
I know I have somehow to update a library database, but does anyone know how to do this. Just running ldconfig doesn't do the job.

Hi there!
I've had a lot of trouble trying to compile GLUT in Linux, but eventually I found out that they are available as a SlackPack on the Slackware FTP site. Just install them, it works GREAT.

So just get the .tgz from ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-8.1/pasture/libglut-3.7/
and install them like so :
cd /pathwhereyoudownloadedglut
installpkg libglut-3.7-i386-1.tgz
run ldconfig, log out, and back in, and voila!

Good Luck!

Well, I managed to compile it now - however they reside still in /usr/src/glut/lib/glut. I don't really wish to keep all the sources since I only need the libraries. And hey, SuSE has got them in /usr/lib, so I wouldn't think that it is not duable in Slack
Still no ideas?

see if the file:

/etc/ld.so.conf

have the path to the libraries:

/usr/lib

if not, add this and rerun ldconfig.

for more information: man ldconfig. ^_^

Hmmm... now it's working. /usr/lib was in ld.so.conf
The problem was, that the library was directly copied from my SuSE box, so didn't like it. I managed to compile Glut from source and now after running ldconfig - no complaints.

You have to be carefull coping system files/lib between distro's unless you know what version of GLIBC they were
compiles against.

OH, you're correct - although the "wrong" GLUT worked while playing tuxracer, I don't get the error after having it compiled from source - and thanks for the info
