This is a great resource that would be much more valuable if the symlinks worked. A tar of each lib with working symlinks would be much more straightforward to install.

Thanks for the advice WhoDo and HairyWill
But you want me to make over 1000 hyperlinks?Ummm would probably be better as a team effort, like 10 people 100+ links each.
all at once lol
I actually might revisit it and try to work something out once I get some extra free time.

Never ask somebody else to do something you are not prepared to do yourself. I've only made 856 links and generated 584 zipped tars containing them. That is everything in the top level directory done. There may be a couple of errors caused by odd naming conventions. I am uploading a tarball now. It has also compressed the libs down from over 200MB to about 60MB. I will PM you the link when the upload completes. Smile

Hey "HairyWill" sounds good what your doing two thumbs up !

I know this is ttuuxxxs thread but I have to say something

We all need Libs from time to time **I personally go to the main home page when I can of the lib in question but that's not for everyone it is much easier with a list the way ttuuxxx
set it up from a basic need that he had while he was building his version of fire hydrant and was kind enough to set up a site and offer the list to all who may need it

there is always room for improvements and fine tunning that will never end
working together is always the best way
and I am glad there is interest in having this great idea supported by many people

Hope it helps. Mind you it is a kind of backwards way of doing things as the libs must have had proper symlinks when ttuuxxx downloaded the slackware package.

The best way of all would be the utility I was working on a year ago.
If a program error was a missing library, the app. dnlded & installed it.
The app. then trys running the program again until it had all the libraries.
It would require a permanent URL to point to dnld sites like ttuuxxx's.
Also needed codecs for music & movies would be automatically installed.
Device drivers (modules) would still need to be installed manually though.

libglut.so.3 seems to be missing. Tried using a renamed libglut.so.3.8.0 instead, but I'm not sure if this is causing my problems with Compiz. Can you just rename later versions like that? The dependant program will not detect it without renaming.

well you shouldn't rename it you should system link it, but yes libglut.so.3.8.0 can be system linked as libglut.so.3

Sub_title: downloaded "libraptor.a" and stored in /lib
 

console calls for "libraptor.so.1" when entering # ardour on console .I have dled "Libraptor.a" from ttuuxxx's database listing and placed it in a folder called "lib" I now need to understand how to unzip ? or unarchive ? and be able to point to it so "libraptor.so.1 " can be satisfied.Can someone give some instructions on this or correct my thinking if I am all wet ? Laughing thanks,bill

Bill,

the file you need is this one:

http://puppylinux.ca/tpp/ttuuxxx/Libs/libraptor.so.1.1.0

save to /usr/lib, then create a symlink by:

Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/libraptor.so.1.1.0 /usr/lib/libraptor.so.1


(N.B. with linux there are two types of libraries, static & dynamic. The libraptor.a is a static library, and if a program is compiled with it, then the executable produced is essentially carrying the library internally, and doesn't require the library externally. With libraptor.so.1.1.0 it's a dynamic, or shared library, which is avialable to the executable externally. The advantage of having shared libraries is that other programs can use the same resources).

Sub_title: Clicked on Home icon and used "new to create /usr/lib Is this correct?
 

Hi muggins,thanks for your help .I think I have the /usr/lib directory sorted with libraptor.so.1..1 installed inside /lib but when I use :
ln -s/usr/lib/libraptor.so.1.1 /usr/lib/libraptor.so.1 then enter
I get a "permission denied " ?

Did I forget to say "PLease !" Laughing cheers,bill

When you say "installed inside /lib", is this a typo? As should be to /usr/lib, which is a different location. Also, it isn't:

Code:
ln -s/usr/lib/libraptor.so.1.1 /usr/lib/libraptor.so.1


but, with a space after the -s:

Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/libraptor.so.1.1 /usr/lib/libraptor.so.1


If this still doesn't work, you can achieve the same result by migrating to the /usr/lib directory, using Rox-filer, right-clicking libraptor.so.1.1 & then selecting Link, and then changing the address bar to /usr/lib/libraptor.so.1, then click OK.

Hi muggins,Sorry for the confusion and yes I followed your instructions of /usr/lib/libraptor.so.1 which seems to be installed but on typing in Ardour on the command line it says:Cannot open shared object file . no such program or directory.I really don't know where I am going wrong but I guess I will keep bull dogging it and see what I can come up with.I may have to start over ? Anyway thanks for you help.cheers,bill

Thanks ttuuxxx for putting this up. Razz Two of the missing libraries (libtk8.4.so and libcl8.4.so) I was looking for to install python 2.4.3 in Dingo were here. Python was also looking for libdb-4.3.so and I got it by popping in a live CD of another linux distro and getting it from there.
