I have just installed alienstream but am unable to get it to run.

When I try to test the helper with alienstream URL, I get the following
message back:

error while loading shared libraries: libxine.so.1: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory

libxine.so.1 is located in /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/lib is in the
path.

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Wes

The path is irrelevant for libraries; the path only used is for
executables. Perhaps you have to edit /etc/ld.so.conf to add
a line for /usr/local/lib and then run ldconfig.

Wesley, if you're running Red Hat, this is a big probability. RH never
did put /usr/local/lib in ld.so.conf by default. I had to redo it after
every upgrade.
