X11 failled to run (was: H1 images - comments and questions)

Hi all,

Using HURD CD's (H1 date 20011107), I just reinstall from scratch my hurd-i386 box.

Everything seems to works more or less fine.

After the initial.sh was completed I used apt-cdrom to add cd:
        # settrans -a /cdrom /hurd/isofs /dev/hd1
        # apt-cdrom add
        # settrans -agf /cdrom 
and so on for the tree CD's. And finally complete with apt-get update.

Then I install xdm with apt-get install xdm which was completed successfully :<))
(I fill lucky because all packages stand on the same CD)

I first mount my woody root fs to get my operational XF86config files
Then I try to launch "/etc/init.d/xdm start"[1] which complained that it can not
load libXpm.so.4, file does not exist . (startx command complained of lack of

I have a look and those files were well installed by xlibs package and ther are
On the other hand /etc/ld.so.conf contains well the path to X11R6 libs (as in my
linux box: /usr/X11R6/lib).
Then I try ldconfig and retry [1]. No more success (same error message)?

But no ld.so.cache was created. So is there something broken with ld?

Any idea?

Thanks in advance for help and congratulation for nice job,
