libXaw.so.5 error


Hi,

I seem to get the following error more often than I would like:

Code:
ld.so.1: xboard: fatal: libXaw.so.5: open failed: No such file or directory
Several IPS packages installed with "pkg install" fail to start up after displaying the above error. (Xboard, the programme shown above, is just one example.)

Google does not seem to have much information besides a developers' mailing list discussion.

I have already run "pkg search -r libXaw3d.so.5" and "pkg install FSWwxrtl" but the problem still remains.

Code:
-bash-3.2# pkg search -r libXaw.so.5
INDEX      ACTION    VALUE                     PACKAGE
basename   link      usr/lib/libXaw.so.5       pkg:/FSWxwrtl@0.5.11-0.75
basename   link      usr/lib/libXaw.so.5       pkg:/FSWxwrtl@0.5.11-0.79
basename   link      usr/lib/libXaw.so.5       pkg:/FSWxwrtl@0.5.11-0.75
-bash-3.2# pkg install FSWxwrtl
PHASE                                        ACTIONS
Install Phase                                    3/3 
-bash-3.2#
Can someone please help?

Thanks in advance for your time.

You can run:
Code:
ldd `which Xboard`
to see where it looks for the missing library. Then you can use LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or crle to extend the library search path.
