Default shared libraries and linux emulation

Hi,

After attempting to get flash working i somehow managed to break acroread. I get a message "error while loading shared libraries: libX11.so.6
no such file or directory"

but the file _does_ exist.
locate libX11.so.6 gives
/usr/local/lib/libX11.so.6
and /usr/compat/linux/usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6

any way of finding out which library the program tries to load?

Try "ldd /path/to/acroread" and see what the output says.

ask file what it is, it's probably a shell script.


In which case, you'll have to open it and read/trace what it actually execs in order to ldd that.

The real binary seems to reside is /usr/local/Adobe/reader8/ENU/Adobe/Reader8/Reader/intellinux/bin

An ldd gives: ELF binary type "0" not known.
