Description David Nečas 2001-05-25 21:32:45 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
It's nice the rescue finds and mounts the original system partition, when 
possible, and sets PATH so one can easily run programs from it -- however 
one must set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to be able to actually run anything what 
needs some additional libraries, say ncurses. Would it be possible to set 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from the install/rescue cd
2. type `linux rescue'... , answer the questions about keyboard and such 
stuff ...
3. try to run, say mc

Actual Results:  it complains it cannot find some library

Expected Results:  the program normally runs (well, normally, it may be 
unable to find some its resource files, but that's another matter)
