Best fix: rm /usr/X11R6 touch /usr/X11R6 chflags schg /usr/X11R6 /sbin/ldconfig -m /usr/local/lib (just to force the linker to re-read the dupes). As a bonus, the old apps you still have pointing to /usr/X11R6 will now complain and be exposed and anything that wants to install or modify something in /usr/X11R6 will be exposed too. I've done this about a week after I upgraded and it solved all the linux linker problems and only one app I had compiled from source rather then using a port, wasn't working anymore. Recompiled and no problemo. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
