Didn't help :-( > I assume the permissions on the libs already are reasonable. [ adamk@sorrow ~ ]$ ls -l /compat/linux/usr/lib/libaudiofile.so.0* lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 21 Dec 28 14:33 /compat/linux/usr/lib/libaudiofile.so.0 -> libaudiofile.so.0.0.2 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 158396 Dec 28 14:33 /compat/linux/usr/lib/libaudiofile.so.0.0.2 Solved it! It's LD_LIBRARY_PATH. If you have the same FreeBSD library in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH, it tries to use that library instead of the linux one :-) Mikko, thanks for your help. It was your tip on permissions that got me to try the app as root. When I saw that they worked as root, I realized it had to be something in my environment.
