    Do I need 686 for this app.???


    I have a an application file. its name is:
    ---------------------------------
    smoke_LINUX_2.4_i686
    ---------------------------------
    does the above name imply that it is meant for an i686 kernel.
    i dunno if i686 is kernel or what.

    when i execute the file by typing :
    ---------------------------------
    ./smoke_LINUX_2.4_i686
    ---------------------------------

    it gives an error stating :
    ---------------------------------
    ./smoke_LINUX_2.4_i686: error while loading shared libraries: libDlVIOapi.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    ---------------------------------

    what does the above error mean?
    how do i know about which x86 my pc is running at?
    i have a p4 - 3ghz - hyperthreading

    i am running Mandrake Linux 10.1 official release

    awaiting your replies,
    thx

    Your p4 will run i686 just fine. The error you get is because you don't have the library libDlVIOapi.so. I dunno what library this is, you might see what google tells you.

    As valan specified, your P4, is on 686 architecture.
    Whats the exact app your trying to install... I tryed googling, but most result are in russian.. and y russian... well its innexistant,
    also something like movie/video editing or something alike...
    do you have access to an RPM?

    i do not have the rpm file for the mentioned program.
    the software is used for editing.

    jus a few mins back i saw that mandrake linux cd label has this i586 in it. will this cause any problems?

    i also have redhat9, the cd label of which reads i386?

    if all these distros are below i686 and if i am right......then where can i get i686 linux. maybe such a version would have the missing libraries.

    those diatro's will be fine even if they are below i686, they are just not as highly optimised;
