Thursday, September 18, 2008 cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

While doing a fresh install of 11i vision on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5, RapidInstall gave the following error:

Rapid Install Wizard will now launch the Java Interface.....

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /11istage/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/jre/Linux/1.4.2/lib/i386/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This error comes because library is not present in /usr/lib.  The rpm which contains this file is libXp-1.0.0-8.i386.rpm.  It is present in the Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 DVD  in /server directory.  So copy this rpm from the DVD or CD and install it:

rpm -ivh libXp-1.0.0-8.i386.rpm

Once this is installed, confirm about the presence of the the file by this command:

$ ls -ld /usr/lib/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Jul 29 06:45 /usr/lib/ ->

Vikram Das said...

Hi Anonymous,

You don't need to copy it. You need to install the package which has the file:

rpm -ivh libXp-1.0.0-8.i386.rpm
