So autopackage is a package format add-on to a distro. It's
neither .deb or RPM compatible, may or may not track library

I think you've been bitten by choosing technologies with
more shine than substance, and with gooey centres. Deryni

autopackage support, or sit tight until they need it. The
fastest method to resolve this problem is likely to install
Gaim the same way /lib/ld-linux.so.2 was installed on your
