Hi,
I have installed Cinelerra on a Mandrake v9.0 installation.
There were no errors during the installation process.

I also installed the libgcc-3 and libstdc++-3 libraries (figured
it couldn't hurt) - again no error mesages during the install p
rocess.

When attempting to run the application I get the following
error message:

/usr/bin/cinelerra: error while loading shared libraries:
libpng.so.2: canot open shared object files: no such file or
directory.

Am I correct in assuming that Cinelerra only works on a
RedHat installation or can it be configured to run on my
Madrake system?

Also is it a requirement to have xfree86 installed?

I am a newbie to Linux but am learning fast (maybe the
hard way).

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards... Otto

    Hi,

    this message shows tha the library libpng.so.2 is missing. (lib to
    work with PNG images).
    Theses libs are installed in /usr/lib (other places are
    /usr/local/lib)

    Try :
    ls -l /usr/lib/libpng*
    (or maybe /usr/local/lib/libpng* although it seems not very
    likely to be there)

    I you can find no "libpng.so.X", you will need to install the PNG
    libs from your Mandrake distribution.

    In case there is a new version of the libpng in Mandrake 9 (I
    don't know if it's the case), you could find a linpng.so.X with
    "X" different from "2". Then, you will need to find a RPM for
    this lib on the Mandrake web site. I can't help you further here,
    but Linux newsgroups or the Mandrke users comunity should
    help you.

    Cheers,
    Pierre.

    Yes Xfree86 is the equivalent of windows on top of dos, most
    applications require it, altho some tools dont need it like some
    tools.
