Could not open library ksmserver...
1 Attachment(s)
After upgrading everything possible with gslapt, I realized that gslapt totally messed up my libraries situation. E.g., glpapt no longer runs because it is looking for, which certainly exists where it thinks it does not...

Even after clearing my /tmp folder, clearing ~/.kde, running "slackpkg clean-system" and, in the slackware64/kde directory of my install drive, "upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new *.t?z", I still get the following errors when running startx with xwmconfig set to KDE. The important part is (see whole snippet: Attachment 7930):


Could not open library ksmserver: Cannot load library /usr/lib64/ ( error while loading shared libraries: No such file or directory)
ksmserver: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

And those files are indeed where it says they're not... This is not the first time gslapt has messed up my libs, but the first time only affected my video driver; this time it affected many libraries.

What's going on? :Pengy: Thanks

So, where is this file "" located on your system then? And what is the output of the command "file" if you run that in the directory where you located "" ?
It is possible that you let gslapt update your 64bit originals with packages from a 32bit Slackware repository.
