I think you just need to this if your shell is bash (default shell in
FC2 I think)
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/some/private/dir/lib; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
or if you're using csh or tcsh
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /some/private/dir/lib
If that works, you can put this in the appropriate dot file so you don't
have to retype them each time you login/create a new shell.
For bash I think it's ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile
and for csh it's ~/.cshrc and ~/.tcshrc for tcsh.
