I see this topic over and over again, but many of the replies are
I am running stock 2.0. Attempting to build a 3rd-party package, I
get the error message:
couldn't load file "libtk84.so": libtk84.so: Undefined PLT symbol
"XFreePixmap" (symnum = 16)
(I have stripped the path off the filenames as it gives away details
of one of my machines).
when the required file is present in the same directory as I am doing
the build. If I copy it to somewhere like /usr/lib, the message
changes to one indicating that an X11 library could not be found. I
had the same problem under 1.6.2, and heard that it was fixed in 2.0,
something to do with ld-elf.so.
Does anyone know whether there is something to do with configuration
going on here, i.e. is there a stock environment variable that needs
setting, or some standard flag that needs setting in Makefiles? I
take it that the search list for shared libraries is what is at issue,
but the man pages warn against using ld.so.conf for this purpose.
