Shared Libraries
« on: April 12, 2011, 04:10:44 pm »
I have gone to great lengths trying to get Sim City 3000 to run on Vector. Installation was no problem, finding and applying the patch wasn't too bad either, but I cannot understand why sc3u keeps reporting the following error:

/usr/local/games/SC3U/sc3u: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory exists, BUT, it does not exist in /usr/lib which is where I believe sc3u is looking for it:

wrcu2:$ ls -al /usr/lib/libdl*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7914 2008-04-20 02:17 /usr/lib/libdl.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   20 2010-06-30 08:24 /usr/lib/ -> ../../lib/* is easily found linked in /lib

wrcu2:$ ls -al /lib/libdl*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 13474 2008-04-20 02:17 /lib/*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    12 2010-06-30 08:23 /lib/ ->*

Is this a simple matter of creating a link in /usr/lib? If so, what is the safest way to do this?

I think your going to require a few more steps if this link is any indication.
