AFNI 3dSkullStrip cannot open shared object file

Not sure if my previous post was successful.
We are running afni on a Rocks 5.5 Cluster with Centos 5.8
When running 3dSkullStrip we get the error

3dSkullStrip: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

We do have mesa-libGLU library installed:
Package matching mesa-libGLU-6.5.1-7.10.el5.x86_64 already installed. Checking for update.
Package matching mesa-libGLU-6.5.1-7.10.el5.i386 already installed. Checking for update.
Nothing to do

[root@imagingcluster abin]# cd /usr/lib64
[root@imagingcluster lib64]# ls -lt GL

Do you have any suggestions on how we might solve this error?


Can you report back with the output from the following

afni -ver
which afni
which 3dSkullStrip
ldd which 3dSkullStrip

Hi Tom,

Does that mean that there is no /lib64 link to /usr/lib64? That
seems to be common on RedHat systems. What is the output

ls -ld /lib*

If you don’t have one, I expect the admins might not want
to make it though. So afni works, just running ‘afni’, or are
there other issues?

ldd `which afni`
