Unhappy Shared Library not found but exists as symlink

I'm going to spew. I've installed wxpython, and after trying to run wxrc, it says a lib doesnt exist.

wxrc: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I found out about the ldd utility, and got these results from running ldd wxrc:
Quote: => not found => /usr/lib/ (0x40027000) => not found
Doing a search finds exists as a symlink to .

This is also the case for the other unsatisfied libs mentioned there. As I understand it, Linux should treat those symlinks as if they were the libs themselves. Why doesnt it work for me?

Thanks for any help in advance. This is all for my get DavoMan onto BitTorrent Appeal.

After installing the lib, did you run ldconfig. This is run during boot normally. Where are the libs located. Is the location listed in /etc/

I installed wxpython from a RPM. Never heard of this ldconfig, I will run it now.
-two minutes later-
I have listed in my /etc/
I added /usr/lib/wxPython- and /usr/lib/wxPython/libinto there and now wxrc works.

Cheers man. There is hope for theGet DavoMan onto BitTorrent appeal afterall.
