8.1i PAR - Error: "ld.so.1: par: fatal: libParBase.so: open failed: No such file or directory."


Keywords: Turns, BASH, KSH, mppr, Korn shell, PAR

When I use the Turns Engine, remote nodes are not able to run PAR, and the following error is reported:

"ld.so.1: par: fatal: libParBase.so: open failed: No such file or directory."


This error might result if the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable does not include $XILINX/bin/sol.

When this occurs while using the Turns Engine, the environment set-up script or ".cshrc" may not be setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. For more information, please see (Xilinx Answer 1644); for Bourne-derived shells, please see (Xilinx Answer 12449) as well.

PAR is dynamically linked to a number of libraries. "ld.so.1" is the program responsible for linking PAR to its libraries at runtime. It will search the directories in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable for these libraries. Therefore, the LD_LIBRARY_PATH must include $XILINX/bin/sol where PAR's dynamic libraries reside.

For more information, please also see the "ld.so.1" main page.
