How do I install libraries without apt-get?


Hi, I've recently bought a dedicated FC4 linux server. I'm planning to run a dedicated game server on it. Im getting troubles when installing some libraries required by the gameserver. I'm using SSH to run the program. This is the error I get:

./otserv: error while loading shared libraries: liblualib50.so.5.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Now I've already installed the "lua" and "lua-devel" using "yum install" command.

When I check if they're installed I used "rpm -qa | grep lua" and this is what I got:

lua-5.1-6.fc4
lua-devel-5.1-6.fc4

I need all the following libs to run the server:

* libilua50
* libilua50-dev
* libilualib50-dev

I tried using yim install to get them but it did not find any of them. apt-get is not installed on the machine and when i tried installing it from freshrpms it said that i needed another bunch of libraries to install apt-get. So how do I get all those libs on my machine?

You might try finding them on the http://rpm.pbone.net website. If you click on the "Advanced Search" button, you can then clear all the checkmarks and then check FC 6 and FC Other. That helps narrow the search to packages made for your distro.
The dependencies are also listed with links to the packages that supply them.

One possibility is if you have
liblualib50.so.6.0 instead. In that case, you could try linking from liblualib50.so.5.0 -> liblualib50.so.6.0.

I've looked trough all lua packages, none of them which contain liblualib50. Any other suggestions?

Do an "rpm -q --filesbypkg lua lua-devel" and grep for liblua. Chances are liblualib is installed but it's a different version than the one required by your server (your server seems to require 5.0). You'll need to look for an RPM of a more recent version (Fedora Core 4 is fairly old at this point, so I'm not surprised that some things are getting out of date). You could try with RPMs from a more recent Fedora but they're unlikely to work as is. One thing to do is grab the src.rpm with the lib version you need, install it on your system and build it with rpmbuild, and then install the resulting binary RPMs. You could also just remove the lua and lua-devel RPMs and build the proper version from source by hand. The main advantage of havign an RPM is that you can manage the install through the package manager.

Liblualib does not seemed to be installed on the machine heres the result of the command...

lua /usr/bin/lua
lua /usr/bin/luac
lua /usr/lib/liblua-5.1.so
lua /usr/share/doc/lua-5.1
lua /usr/share/doc/lua-5.1/COPYRIGHT
lua /usr/share/doc/lua-5.1/HISTORY
lua /usr/share/doc/lua-5.1/README
lua /usr/share/doc/lua-5.1/contents.html
lua /usr/share/doc/lua-5.1/logo.gif
lua /usr/share/doc/lua-5.1/lua.html
lua /usr/share/doc/lua-5.1/luac.html
lua /usr/share/doc/lua-5.1/manual.html
lua /usr/share/doc/lua-5.1/readme.html
lua /usr/share/man/man1/lua.1.gz
lua /usr/share/man/man1/luac.1.gz
lua-devel /usr/include/lauxlib.h
lua-devel /usr/include/lua.h
lua-devel /usr/include/lua.hpp
lua-devel /usr/include/luaconf.h
lua-devel /usr/include/lualib.h
lua-devel /usr/lib/liblua.a
lua-devel /usr/lib/liblua.so
lua-devel /usr/lib/pkgconfig/lua.pc

I also ran a grep for liblua and it returned nothing. The problem I'm having is finding the rpm file that contains the libs I need. I've been unable to find them anywhere...

Usually libraries take the form lib<name>.so.<version> not lib<name>lib or anything like that (there are exceptions, though. It looks like you have version 5.1 of the Lua libs. You could always do:

ln -s /usr/lib/liblua-5.1.so /usr/lib/liblualib50.do.5.0

and hope things are backwards compatible.

Did the game server you're trying to run have any documentation on this? Ideally it should have al ist of dependencies or bundled the libs it expects into its package.
