libnspr4.so questions

Post#1 by phill42083 » 03 Dec 2012, 07:11

hello,
I was wondering what libnspr4 is? i have tried to download many things such as pulseaudio from the debian tab and it said that its missing and that it cant find then I tried using the SBO and it said that json was missing. I was just wondering what the libnspr4 was and how I can get it. thanks

Hi!
NetScape Portable Runtime library.

I found in google following definition: libnspr4: NSPR provides platform independence for non-GUI operating system facilities. These facilities include threads, thread synchronization, normal file and network I/O, interval timing and calendar time, basic memory management (malloc and free) and shared library linking.

Cheers!

Thanks for the link. After loading it (the libnspr4 xzm) then I try to activate the the pulseaudio but I keeps getting the dependency resolve thing and it tells me that it needs to download it bbut it can't find. I Don't get it, its there but the activate tells me it isn't and it needs to find the deb. I don't get what I'm doing wrong . I even tried extracting the xzm I made then manually overwriting over the libnspr4.so in /usr/lib/. Thanks everyone for all the help so far.

Please provide the exact output of the message that you get concerning libnspr4.so. And give us the name of the file(s) that you have in the xzm module that you made and in which folder they are located in the module. Note that libnspr4.so is not the same as libnspr4.so1, .so2, etc. :) . Maybe you need only to put a symlink, or that once you have resolved a library that another will be missing. :)

i get while activating xzm.

Porteus Report:
Total libs required: 1
total libs resolved: 0

/usr/lib/libnspr4.so

if you continue, it can not be guarenteed that you app. will run smoothly if at all.

file is there so idk why it is looking for it to download. Even when I try to activate the Perl 10.0 from slackware I get this message. I cant figure it out.

Debian squeese pulseaudio has many dependencies, look at those that seemed to be required and make sure you have the good version:
http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/pulseaudio

Instead of debian, there are also pulseaudio slackware:

Why don't you try thru PPM with slackware option slacky.eu? :pardon:

After activating please run 'ldconfig' from terminal and try to run the apps. Also be sure that the file is there.
Give output of:
file /usr/lib/libnspr4.so
ls /usr/lib/libnspr4.so*
