On several occasions I had this problem when an application fails to

there and I have update the cache using ldconfig.
For example, I'm trying to get Skype running on AMD64:
skype: error while loading shared libraries: libqt-mt.so.3: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
sella:/home/ams/# ldd /usr/bin/skype
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000)
librt.so.1 => /lib32/librt.so.1 (0xf7f42000)
libasound.so.2 => /usr/lib32/libasound.so.2 (0xf7e82000)
libqt-mt.so.3 => not found
I notice you're using 32-bit shlibs here, but...
sella:/home/ams# locate libqt-mt.so.3
...these all appear to be native 64-bit.
sella:/home/ams/# ldd /usr/bin/skype | grep 'not found'
libaudio.so.2 => not found
Now, I need to do the same with libaudio2 and maybe.... Thanks a log
sella:/home/ams# ldconfig -v | grep libqt-mt.so.3
libqt-mt.so.3 -> libqt-mt.so.3.3.7
sella:/home/ams/# ls -l /usr/lib/libqt-mt.so.3.3.7
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10390056 Oct 21 13:45 /usr/lib/libqt-mt.so.3.3.7
/usr/bin/skype: error while loading shared libraries: libqt-mt.so.3:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
You didn't run ldd again to see if it's now found?
(I did, but you spotted the real problem, I believe)
Any suggestions why the library isn't picked up? TIA.
If you can get the 32-bit libqt-mt.so, that might help. I've never
used 64-bit linux, so I'm just guessing.
