Default Gambit installation under linux
Posts: n/a

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.

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.
