Question Ld_library_path - Xine Error

echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH returns:

In my .bash_profile, I have the following statement:

I also want LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to:

Can I do this? If so how?

Note: I'm trying to correct this problem which I am having with XINE:

Could not run XINE test program, checking why...
The test program compiled, but did no run. This usually means
that the run-time linker is not finding XINE or finding the wrong
version of XINE. If it is not finding XINE, you'll need to set your
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ to
point to the installed location. Also, make sure you have run
ldconfig if that is required on your system.
If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it,
although you may also be able to get things to work by

configure: error: ** You should install xine-lib first ***

Assuming you've installed what it's asking for you can add the path to what you want in


( I = L for Lenny) then do


if that still don't work before you to try compile again,

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH: path_to_wherever
