error while loading shared libraries

I had the following skull stripping error when trying to run anatomy alignment transformation;

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
** ERROR: Could not strip skull


You just need to install that library. What operating system
and version are you using? If you are unsure, please post
or mail me the output of: -check_all

This error sometimes happens for different types of installations. The gsl libraries need to be installed, so be sure they were installed properly for your platform. Search our messageboard for similar problems and solutions like this one:,154234,154250#msg-154250

What system are you on, and what version of AFNI? Namely, what’s the output of:

afni -ver


Also helpful would be the output of -check_all
