Tring to install Blender on FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE (found that this version works with the dreaded Ali chipset that kills all other distros with the contigmalloc1 error on installation in case that can help anyone)
Current problem I have is that when I try to use Blender (installed from the ports) I get the error
/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libGL.so.14" not found
after googling found this link http://news.gw.com/freebsd.questions/160822
I assume you've already made the following links under /usr/X11R6/lib/
libGL.so.14 -> libGL.so.1 libGLU.so.14 -> libGLU.so.1
OK, willing to give this a try, just don't know what links this refers to - would this be a symlink ? eg: ln -s /usr/x11R6/lib/libGl.so.14 /libGl.so.1 ? I tried cding to the dir and typing exactly what I saw above, no good.
Please reply to me direct as I am not on the list.
Thank you in advance for all replies.
Yeah, looks like a symlink. If your syntax is good, that should do it. I'm too cautious, I'd just cd to that dir and do "ln -s thisfile thatfile"...
Thanks for the quick reply ;) I have the same problem in being too cautious. I tought of backing up the libGl file just in case, but then if I restore the backup, the symilnk will still be in place, so if I do damage, I am not sure how to "unsymlink" (if that is a word lol) the file - should this cause problems with other programs, and am worried about destroying my system. As a newbie I have done a few installs in the last 6 months or so and have limited access to the net ATM so not in a good possie to rebuild. When I build the courage tho, I will do it the way you have suggested - cding to the directory.
Thank you Andy
