Hello Experts..

I recently installed GIT version control system on AIX 6.1.

If I issue a GIT command like :
git --version as a root user I am getting the expected result.

But If a normal user tries the same command the user is  getting error as:

stuadmin:stud:/usr/lib> git --version
exec(): 0509-036 Cannot load program git because of the following errors:
        0509-150   Dependent module /usr/lib/libiconv.a(libiconv.so.2) could not be loaded.
        0509-152   Member libiconv.so.2 is not found in archive

Open in new window


How can I solve this.

Please help...

Seems there are different LIBPATH settings for root and the normal user.

libiconv.a as provided by the RPM package "libiconv" is located in /opt/freeware/lib and this is the library required by GIT.

libiconv.a as provided by the AIX package "bos.rte.iconv" is located in /usr/lib. /usrlib is the preferred path if no LIBPATH is set, but the libiconv library there is not suitable for GIT.

So run

echo $LIBPATH

as root and as normal user and compare the results.

If there is a LIBPATH for the normal user (I think there is none) try to find out where it's being set and adjust accordingly, otherwise add a LIBPATH statement corresponding to root's LIBPATH to the normal user's .profile.
