I recently installed jack 0.38-4... the only version I found that will compile cleanly on a 64bit system. However when I try to boot pd I get this message:
pd: error while loading shared libraries: libjack.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I have jack installed and it runs fine. Any ideas?
Jack error when loading pd
I found this possible solution from planet ccrma, as the same problem accours when upgrading jack, which suggests removing the installtion and trying again. If you're interested you can read about it here:

However, since I didn't use a package install, I have no clue how to remove something I compiled myself, so I tried to create new links which worked.
It seems somehow part of the 64 compatability mess, since pd will work when you physically place the links in the corrosponding 64 bit libraries.
Now it's possible to run pd as root, but not as a standard user. If I try I get this error:
[cocteau@localhost lib64]$ pd
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
Application initialization failed: this isn't a Tk applicationcouldn't connect to display ":0"
I've absolutely no idea what that means... it seems to be more of a problem with jack than with pd, as I get the same error when I try to run qjack as a standard user.
I have managed to work out the problem but I have no clue as to why this was one to begin with.
I used the jackd executable found in /usr/bin instead of one in /usr/local/bin. This made all the difference as jack, pd, qjack and everything else now works fine.
After having struggled with getting this computer set up as an audio workstation for the past four months I'm psyched that it's now up and running.
However, I do apologize for having taken up space here with a problem I solved myself.
i have similar peoblem with jack and pd under redhat9.
the compile of pd038 fails with not finding jack/jackh(?!)
pd037 does not appear in the jackconnectbox of the midisection.
it is only possible to use oss mididevice but then the rest is blocked.
under debian it works well.
