/usr/lib vs /usr/lib64


Hi all.

Just tried to compile ORBIT-2 in my just installed Slackware 12.2 64 bit.

Compile after ./configure --prefix=/usr went well, but make install sent all libraries to /usr/lib. Shouldn't they be in /usr/lib64?

I checked with ldd, and libORBIT is linked with all 64 bit libraries.

John

PS: I know I can use --libdir=/usr/lib64, but shouldn't this be the default?

It's not the default if you don't set it that way. You need to pass --libdir.

Or, better yet, you should try using the Orbit2 SlackBuild at SlackBuilds.org. It has already been updated for Slackware64 and it will build a nice tidy Slackware package for you to install.

Thanks,

> It's not the default if you don't set it that way.

I'll have to find out how then. I just installed Slackware 64 and needed a lot more than just ORBIT. I don't mind compiling, and I have found, in several cases, that pre-built packages lack options I need. The time detecting this, and _then_ downloading source and recompiling is much larger than doing it myself in the first place.

Thanks for the reply.
John
