unbable to load ekiga
Last modified: 2008-10-10 05:07:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Ekiga can not be run whether thought Terminal or Desktop.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run in command line
2. don't start
3. this error in command line : ekiga: error while loading shared libraries:
libldap-2.3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
On my fully updated F9 x86 box, which I can run Ekiga on, there is no file
libldap-2.3.so.0, but there is /usr/lib/libldap-2.4.so.2, which belongs to the
openldap-2.4.8-3.fc9.i386 package. Also, my version of Ekiga is
ekiga-2.0.12-2.fc9.i386. Which versions of these packages do you have installed?
As checked in my install DvD I couldn't this ekiga-2.0.12-2.fc9.i386 package.
I am using ekiga-2.0.11-1.fc8.i386
The F9 version of Ekiga is not on the F9 install DVD. You have to install it
from the Fedora repo (doing a yum update will also probably work).
# yum remove ekiga
# yum install ekiga
#yum update ekiga
I upgraded Ekiga to ekiga-2.0.12-2.fc9.i386. but again the same probelm.
same error (ekiga: error while loading shared libraries: libldap-2.3.so.0:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I also use this openldap-2.4.8-3.fc9.i386
Are you still seeing these issues? The version of openldap that shipped with F-9 was libldap-2.4.so.0. Ekiga itself doesn't link directly to openldap but two of the libraries that it is built on do. Can you check that you are running the latest versions of pwlib and opal. For the original release of Fedora 9 these were at least versions:
Can you verify you are running the correct version of those libraries?
Where should I check? i mean i which directory?
The command 'rpm -q opal pwlib' will tell you what versions are installed.
That's your problem. Also what version of pwlib do you have installed? How are you updating your system? Are you using a 'yum update' or are you manually downloading and installing packages? A 'yum update' would have pulled in the update to opal. The Fedora 8 version of the opal library is linked against openldap 2.3 hence the dependency issue.
If your running Fedora-9 both pwlib and opal will need to be running *fc9.i386 versions. ekiga is very dependent on the verion of pwlib and opal. Please upgrade those libraries to the Fedora 9 versions and your problem will go away.
Did updating the pwlib/opal to the fc9 versions resolve your issues with ekiga?
sorry for being last.
it is resolved .
thank you Peter
