In squeezing firefox into the new 0.9.0 , some items were removed.
One lib, libfreetype.so.6, is no longer included, as none of the stock apps require it.
Incoming reports show gaim-1.0.0.dsl and xine.dsl in need of libfreetype.
I have rebuilt these to include the missing lib .. redownload recommended.
If you have a HDinstalled DSL, you can add the two libs manually from any earlier version of DSL.
They are located in /KNOPPIX/usr/lib .. they are titled
libfreetype.so.6 <-- symlink
libfreetype.so.6.3.4 <-- the actual lib needed.
Copy these two files into your /usr/lib directory as root,
From either a root shell, or from "emelfm as super user"
If you come across the missing libfreetype error, please note the extension name
it in this thread, and I will rebuild the extension to include it promptly.
