I'm Gideon Israel Dsouza. Check out my CV on Careers. (gidisrael-at-gmail-com)

I've been teaching myself programming since I was about 11.

I have the odd need to know how everything works. I own Linux, OSX and Windows and play with C#, Perl, Python, RaspberryPi's and Arduino. Check out my CPAN modules and my latest side project : http://perlmonksflair.com/

I will usually edit your question or answer if it's a huge block of unstructured text :)

comment rebuilding my grub2 menu based on my one installed kernel
I'm a little sad that even though I whined about constantly seeing ubuntu answers and trying to make them work for fedora, you gave me an ubuntu based answer. Nonetheless I will try this out..... this really makes me also want to just chuck all this and install ubuntu but that'll just take time that I just don't have :(

@umläute I do have a libgsl.so.0 under /usr/local/lib. OK! I just tried compiling my program again and it worked. So yes I need to be in the same shell. However, I need to understand what is going on here? What is ldconfig and why can't pkg-config know where my gsl lib is?

@umläute ok, so only if I do the export line then it works. This is my output : $ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH $ pkg-config --libs --cflags gsl OUTPUT: -I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib -lgsl -lgslcblas -lm
