I install custom software in
/usr/local/lib. How do I set the PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH in CentOS 6 system-wide to use
/usr/local/lib. I realize there may be more than one way. What's the simplest and most standard way?
You can add it in
/etc/bashrc, say, at the end.
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/lib export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib
You can edit the file
/etc/ld.so.conf and add your path
/usr/local/lib to it
or create a new file in
and put only the following line in it
ldconfig -v as root, and you're done.
