    Windy City Pains install help


    Hey everyone.

    I'd like some clarification on how to install Windy City Pains (an open RPG) onto my suse 10.1 system. I've tried building Allegro, the library the game uses, but I'm not sure its worked because I get an error:
    Code:
     ./hexplay: error while loading shared libraries: liballeg.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    Anyone installed it before? I've read that its popular, but maybe not. I f anyone can help thanx. otherwise, why r u reading this?

    When you add libraries in linux you need to run
    Code:
    # /sbin/ldconfig
    to load the libraries into the cache. This is done on most distributions automatically at boot.

    If it still does not work you can search for the file on your system:
    Code:
    # find / -name liballeg.so -print
    if you find the file you might want to make sure that the library is in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH:
    Code:
    # echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    if not you can test to add the directory to the system variable and then run /sbin/ldconfig again.

    It gives me an error:

    Code:
     # find / -name liballeg.so -print
    find: /proc/3855/task: No such file or directory
    find: /proc/3855/fd: No such file or directory
    Anyone know why it isn't there?

    I guess the game isn't that popular then.
