    Default Help installing FreeHDL

    Has anybody had any luck installing FreeHDL from

    http://www.freehdl.seul.org/


    It is a digital simulation program that works with QUCS which is an
    electrical circuit simulator.

    I can compile it and install it using the normal:
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install

    It installs the program files in /usr/local/...

    When I try to run it I get an error that it can not find a library file
    libfreehdl-vaul.so.0 which is located in /usr/local/lib/

    I checked my configuration in /etc/ld.so.conf and it has a line pointing
    to the directory:

    /usr/local/lib

    My configuration is openSUSE 11.3, KDE 4.4.4, and uname -a gives:

    Linux linux-suse 2.6.34.10-0.2-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-07-20
    18:48:56 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    I know it is being used on other distributions so I am probably setting
    it up wrong. I have had no luck searching on the web and do not know
    where to go from here.

    Thank you for any help.

    Eric

    Hi
    I'm down to the last couple of errors.

    I had a thought, as root user run;
    Code:
    /sbin/ldconfig
    This may help your manual install to recognize the library location.

    That got me further, but it still fails now with:

    linker: libtool: link: specify a tag with `--tag'
    gvhdl: Linking failed!
    Died at /usr/local/bin/gvhdl line 276.
