Gambit installation under linux

I'm trying to get gambit working under linux but get the following error:

LANG en_US.UTF-8 changed temporarily to en_US for gambit use. Starting /usr/Fluent.Inc/gambit2.4.6/lnamd64/gambit ... /usr/Fluent.Inc/gambit2.4.6/lnamd64/gambit: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

A quick look at the FAQ's on Fluent's site mentions something about needing to install openmotif. However, "rpm -qa | grep openmotif" yields;

openmotif-demos-2.3.1-1 openmotif-devel-2.3.1-1 openmotif-2.3.1-1

so I think thats installed already.

The FAQ's also say that the directory /usr/X11R6/lib64/ should have the file in it. However "ls /usr/X11R6/lib64/" yields;


only. where do I get the required file from. I'm using fedora 8 by the way.

Thanks very much in advance for any help.

Re: Gambit installation under linux
Sometimes the default location for installation of certain files are changed on different linux distros. Did you search your system for existence of the file . If you have it somewhere else make sure its executable and create a link in the required directory to point to that file. Hope this helps.
