Check the permissions of the installed libraries. On my setup, these
are in /usr/local/lib

$ls /usr/local/lib -l
lrwxrwxrwx  1 craigm grad     18 Oct  5 13:53 libtorque.so.0 -> libtorque.so.0.0.0
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root   root 472640 Oct  4 20:12 libtorque.so.0.0.0

You also need to ensure that the linker knows where the libraries
are. Does LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/torque/lib qstat work as a normal user?

On my SL4.3 setup, i added a file in /etc/ld.so.conf.d
$cat /etc/ld.so.conf.d/torque.conf 

Then run ldconfig as root.

Dear all,

I just upgraded to torque-2.1.7.
The installation works ok on the cluster gateway which is has Scientific 
Linux (Linux 2.4.21-32.0.1.ELsmp).
I installed the clients on another machine for the users submitting jobs 
  which is running Suse 9.2 (Linux 2.6.8-24.25-bigsmp #1 SMP).
On that machine I used configure as follow:
./configure --with-default-server=arthur --disable-mom --disable-server 
Where arthur is the gateway running pbs_server and maui and 
--without-readline because torque doesn't compile otherwise although 
readline-5.2 is installed.
Compilation and installation went ok but then as standard user, running 
for example qstat gives:
/usr/local/sbin/pbs_iff: error while loading shared libraries: 
libtorque.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
The libtorque.so is installed in /usr/local/lib and running the command 
as root works.
Previous installation (torque-2.0.0p7) was working properly.

Any idea of what might be wrong with this one?

Thanks in advance,
