What software are you trying to install? I'm guessing you're doing the configure, make, make install of a software package you downloaded - did you read any README or INSTALL file to see what it listed as the dependencies?

Probably tell the name of the software. Already asked for in post # 2.

The libraries, example "-lpdb" = libpdb.so (or libpdb.a) : An old Palm library.
( Ref. Google.)

did you install libraries outside of /usr?
if so, try prepending these to the ./configure command(in this example, the program is in "/opt/program":
Code:
LDFLAGS="-L/opt/program/lib"
make sure that all the needed libraries are included

Check the location of the libraries, then put that location into the /etc/ld.so.conf. Finally, do ldconfig as a root user.
e.g. if the installation prefix of your package is /opt/foo, the library is in /opt/foo/lib, then you will need to append a line /opt before you run ldconfig.

I'm writing down a misguided response to the last post erroneously sent as report:

@leiliman: please post as many details as you can if you want someone help you efficiently. Moreover, please don't demand for personal contact through googletalk or any other instant messaging facility. This is a public forum where any question and the related answers serve as a knowledge base. In addition LinuxQuestions is a community of volunteers that freely spend some of their time to help people. Demanding for urgent or personal help is somehow considered rude. Hope you understand. Thank you.
