    A problem with Libso.0?


    I installed kxmame ,and when i run it from the GUI nothing happened ,so i tried to run it from konsole and here is the error i get about a missing library i guess :

    [kejdi@localhost ~]$ kxmame
    kxmame: error while loading shared libraries: libexpat.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    [kejdi@localhost ~]$


    Any idea how to fix this ??????

    Code:
    ls -l /usr/lib/libexpat*

    Hi. The output I need is that of
    Code:
    ls -l /usr/lib/libexpat*
    That command is different to the one you ran.

    I miss understood the symbol ,i thought i would change it with my file so here is what you need to know :

    [kejdi@localhost ~]$ ls -l /usr/lib/libexpat*
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 2008-08-04 21:44 /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1 -> libexpat.so.1.5.2*
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 134880 2008-02-18 18:11 /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1.5.2*
    [kejdi@localhost ~]$

    Try using a symlink e.g.
    Code:
    #ln -s /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1.5.2 /usr/lib/libexpat.so
    The # at the beginning of the command means that you need to be root and should not be typed in. Once the link has been successfully created, run kxmame and see if it works as it should.

    I opened up a terminal as administrator from Mandriva COntrol Center ,and copied your command , after i press enter the cursor is there and nothing happened.

    Any other way of doing it ?

    Did you run your program after entering the command? The command does not output anything on the screen if run successfully.

    If you say so ,then it must have been created well.

    Post back the output of
    Code:
    ls -l /usr/lib/libexpat*
    If the symlink was created successfully then libexpat.so should be a symlink to /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1.5.2. If libexpat.so does not exist, then try creating the symlink as indicated in my previous posts.
