Who knows what versions of library are shafting eachother, you can get some
useful info by running ldd on the programs that are not working and seeing
what actual libraries they are using when the LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set one
way or which ones when set the other way, then maybe you can hone down the
problem. Almost certainly a noncompatible version of one of the libraries that
vi and more is using is duplicated in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and in the broken
is being picked up rather than the working library.
More usefully I'd recommend for the "I just need to get this one app working
right now (tm)" to write a tiny script sommat like this...
set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/brokat/twister-2.3.5/lib yadda yadda yadda...
Leave the LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the ordinary shell set to the generally
and use the script to run twister. To clean it up you could rename twister to
twister.real and rename the script to twister. This is a general shared
problem for solaris, linux windows etc. Im sure loads of us remember the
years with netscape and shared libs. Scouring the world looking for the
that the netscape boys linked it against so that the bastarding thing would
for longer thatn two seconds.
