How can I find packages with specified libraries

After installing a new software I got an error message about a missing library (libl.2) Where can I check, which package I need to install this library ( or any other library ) ? With ldd and chatr I can check which libraries are needed, but I don´t know, where I can get them or which packages are needed. In the software distribution there is no hint about required packages

If you give the name of the software that you have installed then somebody people might come up with good suggestions.

Hi Walter,

make a search in the technical knowledge base for the missed libs, maybe there are hints:

Or a search here in ITRC.

Re: How can I find packages with specified libraries

Hi again,

normally there's no package you need to install - everything should be there.
The software only has to know where it is.
Have you checked if libl.2 is on your workstation?
What is ldd and chatr saying?

Sorry - we need more informations

Re: How can I find packages with specified libraries

Hello,

My guess is that the software that is missing libl.2 is compiled for a PA-RISC2.0
machine and that you are on a PA-RISC1.1
machine.
On your machine you will probably find the
file libl.1 in /usr/lib
On a PA-RISC2.0 machine you will have
both libl.1 and libl.2 in /usr/lib

Regards
Olav

No, libl.2 is the lex library for 11.00 and on but libl.1 is for applications linked on 10.20 and before.
