can't find ldconfig


I'am compiling SVGAlib and it has a Makefile and I ran make install and it stops on a error
can't find ldconfig, I did a find next on Makefile for ldconfig and the only entry for ldconfig
is shown below, I used a editor to insert the /sbin/ldconfig, but it still comes up with can't find ldconfig while doing make install.
What gives ??

Jim

(this is the only entry for ldconfig in the Makefile)

endif
@echo Installing shared library image as \
$(addprefix $(sharedlibdir)/,$(notdir $(SHAREDLIBS))).
@for foo in $(notdir $(SHAREDLIBS)); do \
$(INSTALL_SHLIB) sharedlib/$$foo $(sharedlibdir)/$$foo; \
(cd $(sharedlibdir); \
ln -sf $$foo `echo $$foo | sed 's/\.so\..*/.so/'` ); \
done
@./fixldsoconf
@/sbin/ldconfig

Could you post the exact error message? Maybe it can't find the ldconfig program or maybe it is having trouble editing the ldconfig configuration file, /etc/ld.so.conf

"make[1]: ldconfig: Command not found"

It is not finding the ldconfig command. Are you running as root or user? It is possible that user cannot run ldconfig. try this command:
which ldconfig
to see if ldconfig is available to the make command.

if I type in which ldconfig , it can't find ldconfig , but if I type in whereis ldconfig it points to it in /sbin/ldconfig.
And that is where I edited in, in the Makefile.
I'm running make install as su "root"

"if I type in which ldconfig , it can't find ldconfig"

ldconfig is not on your PATH.

"I'm running make install as su "root""

su "root" has a different PATH than root on most distributions. Try doing your compile as root.

I think that you want to use "su -l" instead of just plain "su". This will set your paths to the root path. You could try both "su" and "su -l" and then look at the difference in the $PATH variable to make sure.
