I am trying to build qcad-126.96.36.199 on a gentoo linux system.
I am able to create the qcad-188.8.131.52 system and unpack the source code into the file.
when I try to run qcad, the closest I can come to qcad is in release/qcad-bin. When I try to run it, the following happens:
- bopper release # ./qcad-bin
./qcad-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libqcadecmaapi.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
bopper release #
I tried a make intsall, which appeared to succeed, but I don't know where there is an executalble.
I don't know how to proceed. Any thoughts?
