Fedora 35: Appimage doesn't run

Post by fbachofner »

I am trying to run XnViewMP from your Appimage on Fedora 35.

I downloaded XnView_MP.glibc2.18-x86_64.AppImage and it will not run, in spite of having execute privileges.

When running from terminal to assess I get

Code: Select all

/tmp/.mount_XnViewdr7VSf/usr/XnView/XnView: error while loading shared libraries: libnsl.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have the exact same error. But my package manager says I would need to uninstall a bunch of stuff to install libnsl. Looking at it, they look like really importation key system files, and libnsl seems to be some legacy library. So I sort of assume I would either break or degrade my system if I swapped the 2.

Ah, I found an flatpack which must just include libnsl because it runs on my system without any tinkering.
