I'm new to this forum but not new to Proiv. Been around since 1991 so not sure why I'm just discovering this!

We're trying to move forward and check out v6 and are moving from mostly SCO Unix platform to RH Linux.

So, I'm taking a stab at installing the latest (v6.1) on Linux 3.0 ES.

I've seen this error before I think but not sure how to fix it.

When I try to start proiv, I get:
pro: error while loading shared libraries: libextsub.so: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

I did not install Lexicon or Statistics and I'm not using any external subroutines.

Any ideas?

I haven't tried V6 so you'll probably get some better feedback than this but..

Assuming I understand you correctly and you've installed sucessfully but have the problem when you try to run, it could just be that you need to ensure the environment value that tells Unix where to find the shared libraries (.so .sl etc) is set

This is usually an environment variable with a name like LD_LIBRARY_PATH but whether you simply set in in your Unix process env or need to put it in an ini file somewhere might depend on how you are using ProIV.

HTH a little..
Nothing's as simple as you think

I thought I had set that but I guess not because that was the problem.

Thanks a lot for the help!
