Thanks for the correct link for bug-reporting!

Thanks for many helping contributions and help to that topic!

At least I found a striking explanation and I think the developers of
Pharo might take care of:

The libGLU-files on fedora13 are not in the directory /usr/lib but in
/usr/lib64. I cross-checked debian lenny and found that libs in
/usr/lib. (lenny does have a directory usr/lib64 as well.)

I had to deal with such differences of different Linux brands and while
moving to 64 bit very often in the past.

I am not a Pharo-developer, but I recommend to check the pathes set and
eventually extend the settings with the 64-bit alternatives.

An alternative might be a hard link?

~$ ln /usr/lib64/libGLU.so.1 /usr/lib/libGLU.so.1

But now I ave another error message:

~ Pharo-1.1-OneClick.app]$ ./pharo.sh
libGLU.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
could not find module vm-display-X11
Abgebrochen (Speicherabzug geschrieben)

I am not allmighty and more or less just a hobbyist with just an
underdeveloped CS knowledge, but I think that there is a trial to link a
32 bit Pharo with an object-file (libGLU.so.1) which was compiled for 64
bit? (May be that debian still delivers a 32 bit object file, so it works??)

One might try to recompile with the '-m64' flag of gcc. May be a
compilerrun with correct autoconf (configure) scripts, set to CC="gcc
-m64" (or CC="gcc -m32") might help?

So I would say, the problem is fixed but not solved.

Regards BB
