Re: IDL on Linux Server
I have checked it, as you told me. IDL 5.4 needs libc6, but libXpm.so.4 needs
both libc5 and lib6c, at least this is what "ldd libXpm.so.4" tells me. I'm
very new to Linux (however, I have worked with other Unix systems), so I'm not
sure about this library stuff.
Funny enough, after checking I now get a different error message. It's
"Floating point exception". Really mysteriously.
