    Libraries not found.


    Hello all, I have recently installed Slackware 10.2. The install went great, no problems whatsoever(that I noticed). I have been trying to install a couple programs that call for your basic libraries, like glib, gtk, etc. I have all of these libraries, but when I try to make install, sometimes even configure, I get errors saying the programs needs these libraries, even though I have them. One of the prgrams is enlightenment, and yes, I have the slackware version. I can run gaim and other programs came with the slackware os and use these so called missing libraries just fine. Also, when I try to use slocate, for instance, I get this:

    warning: slocate: could not open database: /var/lib/slocate/slocate.db: No such file or directory

    Does anyone have a clue as to why this is happening? Here are the libraries I am supposedly missing:

    imlib2 >= 1.2.0
    libICE.so.6
    libImlib2.so.1
    libSM.so.6
    libX11.so.6
    libXcomposite.so.1
    libXdamage.so.1
    libXext.so.6
    libXfixes.so.3
    libXinerama.so.1
    libXrandr.so.2
    libXrender.so.1
    libXxf86vm.so.1
    libasound.so.2
    libaudiofile.so.0
    libc.so.6
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0)
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1)
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1.3)
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2)
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3)
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3.4)
    libdl.so.2
    libdl.so.2(GLIBC_2.0)
    libdl.so.2(GLIBC_2.1)
    libesd.so.0
    libfreetype.so.6
    libm.so.6
    libm.so.6(GLIBC_2.0)
    libz.so.1

    Thaks for your help.

    Are you using installpkg to install the packages? or anything like swaret or slapt-get?

    I used kpackage. I also tried to install manually. this is happenening with pretty much everything I try to install. I heard that this could be caused by the hard drive being mounted incorrectly, but I dont know how to tell if it is or not, or how to fix the hard drive if it is mounted incorrectly. Also, the same errors occur no matter if I am logged in as root or not.

    Sure sounds like you've got a 'broken' install there. Since you just installed I'd suggest you reinstall (and perhaps this would be a good time to install Slack 11 instead) and stick to Slack's package managers. The new slackpkg that comes with ver 11 is works great here.

    Well, I went to turn on my computer today, and now it wont even boot up. It kept telling me the hard drive is confused..what? Well, I guess I do have to reinstall now. Is Slack 11 much better than 10.2?

    In some respects it's better. You can read about it at slackware.com which sounds better (to me) than my getting on a soap box and doing a bunch of typing
