librsvg2 error

I am a newbie and f...d up. I have a webserver with fedora 5. I removed a lot of packages which were not useful for webserver (to limit the number of updates) - packages like gimp, openoffice etc.
Unfortunately those packages had some links/dependencies to other packages as well. Next time I'll know better ... :)

Now I cannot start the Nautilus file manager. It just starting and then fades. From command line command nautilus --browser I get the following error "nautilus: error while loading shared cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

I have checked: the librsvg2 package is installed and yum does not do any updates. In fact I have already reinstalled the nautilus and librsvg2.

Please help: which packages I have to reinstall to get this shared library back?

thanks in advance

missing libs?
Hi, Tarmo182.

This is going to be a "generic" answer so you can figure this kind of
thing out in the future. A program exists to help find what libraries are
expected to be available for all dynamic linked executables -- it's called

ldd /usr/bin/nautilus

will produce a list of ALL libraries required by nautilus and if they exist,
where they are located on the system.
If you see "not found" for any lib, focus on getting those back on the system.

Another useful thing to remember is if you install new libraries on the system,
make sure to run the command ldconfig so the new libraries get registered with
the system.

If you have installed the missing lib, try the ldconfig command and see
if it gets nautilus back for ya.

If not, show us the output of the ldd.
