Default Cannot install the warden pbi
When I try to install the warden (TheWarden0.9.1-PV0.pbi,32-bit version)
by right-clicking it and selecting "Open with PBI Launcher", it asks for
the root password; I enter it, then nothing happens; the installation
abruptly quits, with no error message, or at least none that I could find.

(aside: Are PBI installs or install errors logged anywhere?)

Anyway, when I run the pbi from a command line, I get this error:
     /libexec/ Shared object "" not found, required by "PBI"
A search of the forum for 'Shared object "" not found required by "PBI"'
had two hits, including a recent failure to install the skype pbi.

In that case the user "resolved" the issue by doing a full reinstall of pc-bsd.

ick. I have lots of stuff on this machine, I don't want to lose it.

I thought the whole point of pbi's was to avoid this kind of mess?

More info:

I've been trying this for a while, but only recently tried from the command line and got the missing library problem.

I have checked, the library does not exist on the system, although does. I tried making a link from the latter to the former (an old freebsd trick) but that did not work.

I have lots of other pbi's installed, including:
  • /Programs/Amarok2.2.2

(I think that all or at least most of those were PBI installs.)

yes, it is 32 bit pc-bsd, and 32 bit pbi; yes,, the md5 checksum matched.

Are you sure you are selecting the correct version of the Warden for your version of PC-BSD? i.e., ver.7 and not ver. 8
