    Default Can't communicate with UPS

    Hi,

    I have just installed SuSE 11.0 64bit on a new AMD 64x2 5400+ based box.

    I'm trying to run the MGE-UPS PSP software to monitor my UPS but it won't run. It has a debug option from the shell: psp -d.

    $ psp -d
    psp: error while loading shared libraries: libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


    However this library is installed

    $ l /usr/lib64/libgtkmm*
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Aug 30 13:04 /usr/lib64/libgtkmm-2.4.so.1 -> libgtkmm-2.4.so.1.0.30*
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4435432 Jun 7 08:09 /usr/lib64/libgtkmm-2.4.so.1.0.30*


    In fact, psp doesn't find any of the libraries in /usr/lib64

    $ ldd /usr/bin/psp | grep "not found"
    libgtkmm-2.4.so.1 => not found
    libgdkmm-2.4.so.1 => not found
    libatkmm-1.6.so.1 => not found
    libpangomm-1.4.so.1 => not found
    libglibmm-2.4.so.1 => not found
    libsigc-2.0.so.0 => not found
    libupsclient.so.0 => not found
    libusb-0.1.so.4 => not found


    These are all in /usr/lib64. However /usr/lib64 is in /etc/ld.so.conf and I have done an ldconfig for good measure. I've even removed the line and retyped it then done ldconfig.

    $ cat /etc/ld.so.conf
    /usr/X11R6/lib64/Xaw3d
    /usr/X11R6/lib64
    /usr/lib64/Xaw3d
    /usr/X11R6/lib/Xaw3d
    /usr/X11R6/lib
    /usr/lib/Xaw3d
    /usr/x86_64-suse-linux/lib
    /usr/local/lib
    /opt/kde3/lib
    /lib64
    /usr/lib64
    /lib
    /usr/lib
    /usr/local/lib64
    /opt/kde3/lib64
    include /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf


    Anyone any idea why this app is not connecting to these libraries?

    Thanks a lot.

    One possibility is that the app is looking in /usr/lib rather than
    /usr/lib64. Try the command

    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64 ; psp -d

    to see if that helps. If it does, you can put the LD_LIBRARY_PATH part
    in your ~/.bashrc

    Another option would be to create links in /usr/lib pointing to the
    appropriate .so in /usr/lib64.

    Thanks for the reply, Larry. Unfortunately, your first suggestion didn't change anything.

    $ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64 ; psp -d
    psp: error while loading shared libraries: libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    $


    So I tried your 2nd suggestion and created a link in the /usr/lib directory:

    $ psp -d
    psp: error while loading shared libraries: libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
    $


    I assume that means I have to recompile psp for 64 bit

    Thanks for your help

    Either that, or install 32 bit versions of the needed libraries.

    I was thinking of doing that but don't know how to.

    The only place I can find these libraries is in gtkmm and I can't install the 32 bit version of that because it conflicts with dependencies on the 64 bit version already installed.

    How can I just get the libs and copy them into /usr/lib?

    Thanks

    Strange.

    I have never had to do that, but the command rpm2cpio is advertised as
    being able to convert an RPM file to a cpio archive, from which the
    files could then be extracted with the cpio command, like so (untested):

    mkdir gtkmm-unpacked
    cd gtkmm-unpacked
    rpm2cpio ../gtkmm.rpm | cpio -idv
