CGI won't run due to .so files


I have a cgi written in c++ on solaris 2.6. What I've discovered is that if I link with a .so file I get a server error. If I link using a .a with the -Bstatic flag then the cgi works properly. Unfortunately the full blown version of this cgi requires a couple of .so files that do not appear to have accompaning .a files.

Has anyone run into this problem and found a suitable work arount?

The server software we're using is netscape's suitespot 3.51 on solaris 2.6

Thank you,

Normally with netscape the CGIs are run as nobody which again normaly has no environment set. So the .so do need to be in the normal place for shared objects eg /usr/sbin.

Generally it is best to set up a symbolic link to the files from this directory.

Maybe you can check whether the path and LIBPATH env var. for your cgi are correct.
