Angry Running CheeseTracker! (I've HAD it!)


I've been trying to install Cheesetracker for the longest time.
Just now I finally managed to get Scons to compile&install it, but now there's another problem.

> cheesetracker_qt
cheesetracker_qt: error while loading shared libraries: libsigc.1.2.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

I used Konqueror to search /usr/ and guess what I found?
/usr/.../libsigc.1.2.so.5 which is a symlink to .../libsigc.1.2.so.5.0.5
So why is it saying that file doesn't exist?


PLEEEASE tell me what's going on...

you are not giving us real paths so its a little hard to tell
accept it says you think path is unimportant which is the problem
the linker doesn't put the path to the library in the executable unless the flags -W1,-rpath,pathname are used
otherwise when the program is run it searches /lib and /usr/lib and that's it
if the shared lib is outside those directories it will not be found
so either put the link libsigc.1.2.so.5 to libsigc.1.2.so.5.0.5 in /usr/lib
or add the lib path to LD_LIBRARY_PATH shell variable

Interesting....I'm in KDE as root right now, and it runs from here just fine.

Yup, that did it.
Thanks, ya foo. (lol)

Interesting note:

the 1.2.5 lib was in /usr/local/lib but there was a 1.0.0 lib in /usr/lib.
