I am using
pkg-config to help supply the correct libs during c++ compilation. As I understand it, it searches in directories supplied by
ld.so.conf references the following lib locations via an include directive pointing to
/usr/local/lib /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
Problem is the library I need is under
/usr/lib by default.
Can I just add in this path to
/etc/ld.so.conf myself or move the library or what is the recommended practice?
