    Default Error while loading shared libraries


    I tried to install the vodafone-mobile-connect-card-driver on my
    OpenSuse 11 box, but unfortunately this program changed some important
    settings. Several programs like knetworkmanager and kpowersave will not
    start any more. They return the same error message:

    "error while loading shared libraries: xxxxxx.so: cannot open shared
    object file: No such file or directory."

    But all the missing files are still located under /opt/kde3/lib64. Does
    anyone have an idea how I can make these programs work again?

    Check in Yast - Software - Software management
    Filter by repo

    Upon selection it will open @ 'system'
    scroll the list to see if there are any Red or Blue Packages
    Click them to update

    Red= it will roll back
    Blue= it will update

    If you are using kde3, I would add this repo and update
    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.0/)

    Are you sure the files really exist? Couldn't they be symbolic links to
    files that don't exist?
    With a copy and paste of > ls -l /opt/kde3/lib64/-xxxxxx.so-
    I would be more confident.

    Anyway, running "ldconfig" (as root) could fix the problem.
    Also, a copy and paste of > ldd -r $(which knetworkmanager) and > cat /etc/ld.so.confcould help.

    I tried to update all the programs listed in blue and red colours but
    unfortunately that did not solve my problems.

    All the shared libraries are listed under the /opt/kde3/lib64
    directory. But when I ran "ldd -r $(which knetworkmanager)" and "cat
    /etc/ld.so.conf" it became clear to me that the lib64 directory was not
    listed in /etc/ld.so.conf. So I manually added the directory to this
    file and ran ldconfig. That solved my problems.

    Many thanks to both of you for valuable suggestions. You really helped
    me out here.
