hi,

i'd like to install the software SkyChart 3.2

http://www.ap-i.net/skychart/

so i downloaded the 64bit binary version and if i copy the files directly to /bin and /lib it runs without problem. if i use /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib skychart does not find its libraries. how can i tell skychart to look in /usr/local/lib? i would like to use the local folder so it is easier to get rid of it if I don't need it any more. tia wrdaniel

Check if there is /usr/local/lib line in /etc/ld.so.conf
If not, try to modify file /etc/ld.so.conf and exec env-update

Most likely, this is because you just added new libraries. The system keeps a cached lookup table of libraries to avoid doing a full search on every library open (with multiple libraries per execution, that makes sense). You need to run 'ldconfig' as root to update that cache.
