Missing file to run game?
« on: July 08, 2008, 11:46:39 pm »
Hi

I have an:
Linux Calypsa 2.6.24-gentoo-r8 #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jun 4 19:58:05 WEST 2008 i686 Genuine Intel(R) CPU T2400 @ 1.83GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

I have download ufo-ai 2.2.1 stable, installed,
running ufoai I get:

./ufo: error while loading shared libraries: libcurl-gnutls.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Such file doesn't exist in all system, and I have libcurl and also gnutls

Someone can help me on this?
Regards

I have had this problem myself. The solution is to compile the game yourself and install the resulting executables. You then have to unpack the data and map packs to the specified directory. (One of last lines in output)

try to create a symlink to the searched lib name - that might help

That doesn't work. You have to compile it yourself so it's tailored to your system; the missing file problem will disappear.

What system, may I ask, is the binary compiled on? A Debian-based system?

It's a Gentoo, every package compiled (except openoffice).

But I wanted to avoid to compile the ufoai, and use it only on local user account. Ok I will take the source.
