1 Hi!
3 Good questions. I've been wondering the same thing myself.
5 I also have a somewhat related question. Gentoo Linux doesn't seem to set a
6 global LD_LIBRARY_PATH environmental variable like most mainstream linux
7 distributions (RedHat, Debian, etc.) do. I far as I can tell, this is a _good_
8 thing. (see However, some applications
9 look for this variable. Is there a way, around this? Specifically, I've been
10 looking into Webmin (, and trying to work up some
11 gentoo config files for it. The top level config file seems to want
12 LD_LIBRARY_PATH. At least that is what is in the config files for the other
13 distributions.
