error while loading shared libraries:

trying to install this software
fullanalyze - Project Hosting on Google Code
I get “error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.”

I have a toshiba laptop 32bit that runs opensuse 11.1 with GNOME and I’m not a Linux expert.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide,

Buongiorno Martina, welcome to the forum.

Please use yast → Software Installation and install the libtiff3 package. You may also need the libtiff-devel package if you want to compile an application from source.

There is no yet :frowning: You could try a soft link to From a terminal run the following;

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

libtiff3 was already installed, but the soft link to works! :slight_smile:
Thank you very much… I really appreciate your work!

Doing that is outright stupid. .so.4 has a different ABI than .so.3. That’s what the number change indicates. (No, it’s not the version number of the project itself, at least not for arbitrary software.)
