Installing SUNWvboxguest on OpenSolaris b134 causes gnome-appearance-properties to fail => fixed in SVN

Description (last modified by ramshankar) (diff)

After installing SUNWvboxguest version 3.1.6 on an OpenSolaris build 134 guest the gnome-appearance-properties execitable fails as follows:

indy$ gnome-appearance-properties 
ld.so.1: gnome-appearance-properties: fatal: libXfixes.so.3: open failed: No such file or directory
ld.so.1: gnome-appearance-properties: fatal: relocation error: file /usr/bin/gnome-appearance-properties: symbol glXQueryServerString: referenced symbol not found
Killed
indy$ 

I was able to get this to run by adding two symbolic links to the system; however, I don't consider this a proper fix. The links were:

indy# cd /usr/lib
indy# ln -s libXfixes.so.1 libXfixes.so.3
indy# ln -s libXext.so.0 libXext.so.6

Apparently the libraries SUNWvboxguest puts onto the system requires libXfixes.so.3 and libXext.so.6 but these libraries aren't on the system. I faked it by linking in older versions of these libraries and got the application to run; however, the libraries have updated versions for a reason and it isn't clear what the side effects of linking in an older version might be. For this reason, the links aren't a proper fix.

I don't see how the VBox.log for this session would apply so I didn't attach one.
