CQRLOG refuses to start in Ubuntu

If I type ./cqrlog from the terminal I get:

./cqrlog: error while loading shared libraries: libhamlib.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have libhamlib.so.2 in /usr/lib I tried copying it to the ~/cqrlog/lib and it still fails to find it.

I am running AMD64 Ubuntu 9.10. I was thinking maybe it's looking for 32 bit hamlib files when I only have 64-bit installed.
Any ideas?

Re: CQRLOG refuses to start in Ubuntu


you must have 32bit libraries installed. So please install 32bit hamlib package and cqrlog will work.
You can check it by

ldd ./cqrlog

in terminal.

32 bit libraries

When I try to install the 32 bit packages, the package manager says "Error: Wrong architecture 'i386'" and won't let me install it.

Did you try

Did you try getlibs?


Got it to work.

I was able to force install the 32 bit libraries with dpkg. I still couldn't get the
TRX control to work with my Elecraft K3. I tried it on my Icom IC-910H and it
worked with no problems.

I changed the hamlib rig number from 229 for the K3 to 221 which is the rig number
for the K2 and now it works.
