    Problem with Slackware 13.37


    I installed Slackware 13.37, everything ok. Now I try run a program but I cant. I already tried search on google/other sites but didn't find nothing.

    An example:
    bash-4.1# mplayer
    bash: /usr/bin/mplayer: No such file or directory

    This occurs with ALL programs that I tried to install. Slapt-get, gslapt, google chrome, mplayer and etc.

    When I try locate the program:
    bash-4.1# locate mplayer

    And i already tried use which and file

    bash-4.1# which mplayer
    bash-4.1# file /usr/bin/mplayer
    /usr/bin/mplayer: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

    and no matter what I do, I always get:

    bash-4.1# mplayer
    bash: /usr/bin/mplayer: No such file or directory

    I'm using KDE. This happen with ALL programs that I tried to install...

    Anyone know what to do?

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried using slackpkg to update, and then install through SlackBuilds?

    Did you try to install them with root? If that goes OK, maybe you should check your user permissions.
    Also, try running them with the absolute past e.g. /usr/sbin/mplayer
    One more thing - are you running X?

    Is it a 64-bit vs 32-bit problem? Try using ldd tool to show the libraries required by a binary:
    ldd /usr/bin/mplayer
