Hi, I am running RedHat 9.0 command line (no GUI).
I just installed OpenVPN. In their HOWTO they suggest a program called LZO for compression over the VPN. I installed it and compiled my OpenVPN with LZO as suggested in the HOWTO.

My problem is when running "openvpn --config tls-office.conf" to start OpenVPN I get the following error message:

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

The file do exist in my /usr/local/lib directory and I have added the directory (/usr/local/lib) to my PATH.

I have also run the following command as root:

"chmod 777 /usr/local/lib"

Any help will be appreciated.

Did you do an ldconfig as root?

And you don't need anyone but root to have write privileges to the lib dirs. It's a better idea to create a group, say "coders" and add the users you want to be able to write to the /usr/local/lib dir to that group, then change the ownership of the /usr/local/lib dir to root.coders. Also give the group write permission to the dir.
