Thanks fizze for your help.

I tried to install “libflac” but the slug couldn’t find this package.

I have run the query for the name of libflac and I am getting the response

“flac – 1.2.1-1 – FLAC is a free lossless audio codec. This package contains the codec libraries and the command line tools flac and metaflac. – 1.1.2-3 -“

Where should I go from here ?

Again, thanks for your help !

Looks like flac has upgraded again… only now it’s not .8, it’s .9 or something.

The issue is this: the binaries now are looking for a libflac.so.8. But the latest flac doesn’t provide a .8.

look at the libraries that you hae in /opt/lib:

ls /opt/lib/libFLAC*

Likely you’ll see something… maybe libFLAC.so.9, but no libFLAC.so.8.

We can use the same trick to link libFLAC.so.8 (which we need to have) so that it points to libFLAC.so.9 (or whatever version you *do* have).

This might or might not work… it might be that version 9 is incompatible with version 8 in such a way that the server just crashes trying to run with 9, but it’s worth a try:

ln -s /opt/lib/libFLAC.so.9 /opt/lib/libFLAC.so.8

That makes libFLAC.so.8 point to libFLAC.so.9 (assuming that’s the version you have).

See what that does, or at least show us the output of “ls /opt/lib/libFLAC*”
