trying to install pointbase db i ran into problems with the install shell script. it cant find and as they are located in /lib as i think they should i have no explanation why this script doesnt find them. if i knew where they might be expected i could make a symlink but who knows a better place for them than /lib?
i tried /usr/lib but had no success either.???
has anybody a good idea how to solve that? would be great!
cheers, jens

does /etc/ points to a directory where located? This is strange cause it should be laready defined in LD_LABRARY_PATH if the location is common - something like /usr/lib and check as well libc, gcc-libs installations.
