  1. unsatisfied issues with libxpcom.so



    Good day.

    I hope somebody might have a clue...

    I am having a problem installing a mozilla plugin. When I urpmi
    mozzillaplugin or urpmi mozzila-plugin-vlc I get an unsatisfied
    libxpcom.so message and cannot procede.

    When I type locate libxpcom.so, I see it is in three locations on my system
    /usr/lib/nvu/libxpcom.so
    /usr/lib/openoffice/program/libxpcom.so
    /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox-0.10.1/libxpcom.so

    what is the problem?

    I run Mandrake 10.1

    Thanks.

    Alp

    I'd upgrade to 2007.1, with a clean install, if your hardware will
    support it.

    Anyway, regarding the libxpcom.so module, try creating a file such
    as /etc/ld.so.conf.d/firefox.conf with the line
    /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox-0.10.1
    Make sure you have a linefeed, before the eof. I.E. put the cursor
    on the next line, before saving the file.

    Then run ldconfig, to add the modules in the above library, to the
    list of dynamically loadable modules.
