Have a 5500 with a 1gig SD card that I've setup last week. I'm using the Hentges initrd.bin with the latest kernel from openzaurus(to get the suspend fixes).

Pretty such everything was working but since I had the 1 gig card I started installing more software(mostly games) from the standard feeds. A couple of the games will not work. This includes games like prboom-opie (doom clone) that was working before I installed more software. The error I get is:

error while loading shared libraries: libX11.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This happens for a couple games now. I've tried using ipkg info to see the dependences for these games and made sure they were all installed. I also used ipkg search and ipkg files to try to figure out what package libX11.so.6 belongs to but I haven't had any luck. The file is missing, it's not a library path problem.

I'm a little confused because I thought opie was qt based and didn't use X11 to begin with but I know some of these games were working before.

Suggestions?

Perhaps you've installed and X11 version of SDL by accident (that would explain why some of your games now complain as they use SDL which comes in the two flavours) - that's the only thing I can think of atm anyway.

I seem to have fixed my own problem. It seems libsdl-x11 was installed as a dependence for one of the games I installed(not sure which). I had to remove libsdl-x11 and reinstall libsdl-qpe.

Why is libsdl-x11 in the libs feed instead of the x11 feed? libsdl-qpe is in the opie feed and not the libs feed.

Yep, you're right. I should have posted here before pulling my hair out for 2 days.
