libguichan_sdl-0.8.1.so.1: cannot open shared object file

Post by zeeli » 08 May 2008, 20:48

Hi.

I am trying the 0.0 branch, however when I run tmw, I get:
tmw: error while loading shared libraries: libguichan_sdl-0.8.1.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I've just installed the guichan 0.8.1

Did you install the development package as well (if your distro does that thing)? It should have a similar name with "devel" or something like it attached.

It sounds like the dynamic linker (ld.so) is unable to locate the library.

Try running the command "ldconfig" and see if that helps. Note that you'll need root permissions to do so ("sudo ldconfig" for systems that have sudo).

If that *doesn't* help, then there's probably a misconfiguration in the file "/etc/ld.so.conf". Exactly what this should look like varies from system to system, so posting your OS and version would be helpful.

Thanks Sanga! Running ldconfig helped.
