Description Mattias Ellert 2005-12-20 16:56:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
Trying to start paw gives the following error message...

[ellert@localhost ~]$ paw
/usr/bin/paw: line 56: /usr/lib/cernlib/2005/bin/pawX11: No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `paw.metafile': No such file or directory

I.e. the paw wrapper script (/usr/bin/paw) tries to start /usr/lib/cernlib/2005/bin/pawX11 instead of /usr/bin/pawX11.

If I try to start pawX11 directly without using the wrapper I get other troubles:

[ellert@localhost ~]$ pawX11
pawX11: error while loading shared libraries: libpawlib.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This is because /usr/lib/cernlib/2005/lib is neither in LD_LIBRARY_PATH nor in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
See description above

Actual Results:  See description above

Expected Results:  Start PAW session

Both issues should be addressed in the build
