Abstract: After performing a client only install on Linux you must alter your LD_LIBRARY_PATH or create a soft link
error while loading shared libraries: libgds.so: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory
What do I do?
A. The simplest solution is create a symbolic lib of libgds.so in /usr/lib. Example:
ln -s /opt/interbase/lib/libgds.so.0 /usr/lib/libgds.so
Another solution is to set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to lib directory where InterBase is installed. Example:
Note that the client install only considers InterBase servers running on default portof 3050. If the server you are connecting is running on a different port you must edit your services file (/etc/services) to indicate the correct label and port. For additional information see the InterBase 7.5 Operations Guide.
