When I enter the command: # rehash Nothing happens. I still can't run the iconv command. In fact, I don't see an iconv executable file anywhere. I installed it as a package, and when I run the command: # pkg_info -L iconv-2.0_3 | less
I get a list of files -- mainly .so files and .cct files in the /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/libexec/iconv directories. The only executable files are a biconv file and a iconv_mktbl, which is "perl script text executable." I'm not sure what to do. Again, my main objective of to get ndis to convert a windows driver for my wireless nic card so I can use it on my Free BSD system. When I run the command: # biconv I get the system sends back this message: /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libbiconv.so.2" not found, required by "biconv". I'm not sure it matters, but "libbiconv.so.2" is in the /usr/local/lib/ directory. At this point I am totally lost. What else can I do to get iconv and ndis running?
