Re: [ferret_users] Installing ferret 7.4 - completing the instalation with Finstall Step

Use locate command like below, it will list available .so file, and then create symbolic link either in /lib/  or /lib64 directory 

For example, 

#  locate libreadline.so

Syntax : ln -s [file] [soft-link-to-file]

Here I create symbolic link with the name which ferret is looking for

# ln -s /usr/lib64/libreadline.so  /lib64/libreadline.so.6

Dear Akshay

Thanks for help, it works and completed Finstall's steps. But after that I can't still run ferret. The terminal shows problem below:

root@raden-K42F:~# source /usr/local/ferret/ferret_paths
root@raden-K42F:~# ferret
ferret: error while loading shared libraries: libhistory.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

(the previous problem was  error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.6: 
   cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory  -> but it was solved after i installing libreadline.so.6)

I use Ubuntu 17.10 64bit. I say apologize because i don't have much exprience in OS Linux. 
I really appreciate for any suggestion and help.

Thank You

Best Regards

Dear Ferret Users,

I have some problem when i install executables (fer_executables.tar.gz) in the terminal shows : cannot create .../Finstall.log: Permission denied. I try move the tar data (fer_executables.tar.gz) to another folder, but it still shows the same problem. I also attached my terminal's screenshot that shows the problem.

Any suggestion?

Thanks for help
