[Gmsh] One question for Gmsh

please check

ldd ./gmsh

 for lines "not found". Possibly you've got an architecture mismatch (32 v 64 bit). The binary on the homepage is for 32bit systems. In that case you need to install 32bit libraries (these are not in an lib64/ folder, or course). Depending on your linux flavour, this can be done relatively simple by apt-get, pacman, yum etc.

libGLU.so.1 is provided by the mesa package.

I have a problem when I try to run Gmsh. The error is:

[zhang at clonetroop bin]$ ./gmsh
./gmsh: error while loading shared libraries: libGLU.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

and also, there are some relevant informations:

 [zhang at clonetroop bin]$ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

[zhang at clonetroop bin]$ ls /usr/lib64 | grep libGLU.so

Could you please help me for solving this problem? Thank you very much!

Best wishes,

Kuan Zhang
