jaegerWhat's the proper way to fix a situation like this? got an app that wants libXft.so - the system has libXft.so.2 installed, which works fine if I symlink it to libXft.so13:51
jaegerIs symlinking it the best way or is there something better? seems dirty to me13:51
jaegerIt looks for libXft.so and libXft.a in a bunch of places but never libXft.so.213:52
jaegershould ldconfig have made a libXft.so symlink?13:52
jaegerThis isn't on a crux system but I thought someone might know13:53

sepenjaeger: imho the app's configure script (if exists) should obtain the library name from the .la file, but not sure at all14:47
sepensomething like: $ grep library_names /usr/lib/libXft.la14:47
sepenlibrary_names='libXft.so.2.1.13 libXft.so.2 libXft.so'14:47
tilmannot necessarily :)14:49
tilmanbut i agree that the app wasn't linked correctly14:49
tilmani guess it was linked on a system without the proper symlinks, so 'libXft.so' got baked into the binary14:49
sepenagree14:50
tilmandidn't hit that problem before, no idea what's the best way to fix it14:50
tilmanmaybe you could call it like this:14:50
tilmanLD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libXft.so.2 theApp14:50
sepenjaeger: just as a curiousity, which distro?14:50
jaegerit's ubuntu but the software in question is afni15:56
jaegerdoesn't use autotools, etc.15:56
