Installing shared object library into non-standard directory

Hi,

I have ruby-gnome2 installed into a subdirectory of my application.
ruby-gnome2 has a library in it called glib2.so. I’ve added the
appropriate directories to $LOAD_PATH.

However, when I try to require some of the ruby-gnome2 libraries, I get:

./gui/lib/ruby-gnome2/lib/site_ruby/1.8/glib2.rb:68:in `require’:
libruby.so.1.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
directory -
./gui/lib/ruby-gnome2/lib/site_ruby/1.8/i386-linux-gnu/glib2.so
(LoadError)

glib2.so does exist in that location though. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Joe

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set to include the
./gui/lib/ruby-gnome2/lib/site_ruby/1.8/i386-linux-gnu/glib2.so
directory, btw.

permissions?

what happens if you just do

ruby -r
./gui/lib/ruby-gnome2/lib/site_ruby/1.8/i386-linux-gnu/glib2.so -e :noop

yourself?

-a

You need to add
./gui/lib/ruby-gnome2/lib/site_ruby/1.8/i386-linux-gnu/ to
your $LOAD_PATH instead of LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Thanks,
