Error while loading shared libraries: ???
I never realized how much time I spend at this site until I made it my home page, so first I'd like to say thanx to all the members and helpful people who post their intelligence for the benefit of others. :D

But moving right along...
I wanted to run linuxconf on RH9, so I downloaded it and installed it and now I get an error on startup and every time I try to run linuxconf.

linuxconf: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What is this and where do I get these "shared libraries"?

Did you install from an RPM package, or did you compile linuxconf from source? If the latter, I think you would be better off with the former.

If the former, it looks like you are missing some dependency, which the package manager should have detected. is a graphics library which linuxconf seems to think it needs. There is also an RPM package gd-1.8.1, which will provide this library, so you could try installing that.

If you are curious, the missing file should be in directory /usr/lib, so you can also check for it directly.

Disclaimer: Don't know anything about Redhat, slightly less about linuxconf.
