Missing Shared Library

Post#1 by raja » 15 May 2017, 09:45

/usr/bin/xgettext: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/msgmerge: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/msgfmt: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
configure: error: GNU gettext tools not found; required for intltool
Getting above error message.

Gettext is istalled. libncurses.so.6 is in lib64. I did some linking of directories to /usr/bin, assuming the compiler is looking in different directory.

Please solve.

^ Post moved here as it did not look like a v3.2.2 bug. Also insufficient information provided, explaining the issue at hand.

@raja
Try
find /lib64 -name libncurses.so.?

What is the output?

sorry,came after a long break.no output in terminal, but find files show .so.5. I did copy .so.6 library from pypy package to lib64. I do tests only in fresh mode and keep new modules including dev in optional folder,activate only when needed.

I am typing this using FLORENCE only.

Due to different folder location in different distributions and version specific dependencies,Linux compiling becomes time consuming,and error prone.thanks.
