Used sbopkg incorrectly now having compiling errors

Guys I made a small mistake and was using sbopkg to install packages with dependencies I already had instead of just using -b and upgrade --install-new to manually install the packages (yeah I'm lazy ). Anyway, I broke a few things and learned in the process so boohoo but I'm getting this error when trying to compile 2 different apps. In an attempt to fix the error I installed the latest nVidia driver and it complained about the architecture of but compilied successfully and installed and I'm still getting the error when trying to compile. If you need more info let me know what to do. Any idea's?


libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib64/' or unhandled argument `/usr/lib64/'

EDIT: I found this, but I didnt have this error before screwing with sbopkg and sqg.

I had the same problem when compiling webkitgtk3, the nvidia driver seems to remove this file, but it backs it up. Use
grep /var/lib/nvidia/log
and copy the file (/var/lib/nvidia/102 in my case) to /usr/lib{,64}/

lems your the man! thank's I repped you. Any idea what the heck I could have overwritten, maybe a configuration file after I did a slackpkg upgrade? Cause the program I was compiling, compilied fine just the other day. Guess I've been screwing around with the system too much but I'd kill to find out what the heck I changed. Anyways thanks again marking as solved.

Hi folks,
I have just run into a missing (caused by a different reason) but found a simpler solution. So I'm posting it here for anyone with the same problem in future.

A bit of googling found that libEGL is part of 'mesa', so I just asked my package manager to reinstall 'mesa'.
