I installed Gambit on an AMD64 machine with RHEL4. When I try to launch Gambit, I receive this message:

> [joe@localhost ~]# LANG=C gambit
:
: This product has the following patch(es) applied:
: patch_2230_1
:
: [...]
: Starting /usr/local/Fluent.Inc/gambit2.2.30/lnamd64/gambit ...
: /usr/local/Fluent.Inc/gambit2.2.30/lnamd64/gambit: error while loading shared libraries: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
:

However, the file libXp.so.6 is already installed (xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-1.EL.13.6) and available at: /usr/X11R6/lib64/libXp.so.6 What is wrong? -- Patrice Guay

Hi

I hope you have root privilege. Open /etc/ld.so.conf and add the path of this file, just the path, not the file name, and then save the file. Now run command ldconfig. You can run this command from anywhere. Just type ldconfig and press enter.

Do let me know whatever result you get

Here is the content of /etc/ld.so.conf:

/usr/lib64/nvidia include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf /usr/X11R6/lib /usr/X11R6/lib64

The last line already contains the path to libXp.so.6. I ran ldconfig, then gambit and got the same error. Where should I look to solve this issue?

As much as I know, that should have solved the problem. Check whether that file is a file itself, or a link to another file. Although, that should not affect, yet you can try. Its needed to be asked from an OS expert.

I'm sorry, if that doesn't help much.

I've got it! Here is the answer I got from a Fluent representative:

>since gambit is a 32bit code, the 32bit XFree86 libraries should be
:installed on this system. Gambit will look for libXp.so.6 (and other libraries) in
:/usr/X11R6/lib -- not in /usr/X11R6/lib64

So, I manually downloaded and installed the i386 package named: xorg-x11-deprecated-libs. Now it works.

That's good. It will be of help in the future if someone else gets the same problem. I didn't observe that the directory I have is lib while yours one was lib64
