Computer Tips - Why am I getting an error about a shared library (.so file) not found

Date: 2015jul8 OS: Linux Q. Why am I getting an error about a shared library (.so file) not found when it exists? A. You probably need to add it to the search path. On RedHat/Fedora/CentOS make a file in /etc/ld.so.conf.d Called, for example, myapp.conf which contains the folders where your .so's are found -- one line each. Then run:
ldconfig
So its reloaded.
