Spot on!! Many thanks :-) What I don't understand is why that works, when /compat/linux/etc/ld.so.conf points at the right place in the very first line! ,---- | include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf | /lib | /usr/lib | /usr/local/lib `---- The only .conf file in ld.so.conf.d is xorg-x11-i386.conf which contains the line /usr/X11R6/lib Is ldconfig ignoring the first line? I'm grateful but puzzled - thanks again :-) atb Glyn _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
