  1. Just when I thought I was pretty reasonably experienced with GNU, I tripped over some weird library loading issue. Apparently there's a cache of library path resoultions in /etc/, and *apparently* the install script for my library didn't refresh it, so when I ran my program it said the library wasn't there when it clearly was, and using ldd to view all the subdependencies worked correctly, but would say `not found` for each of the custom libraries needed, even though those were also Definitely There. This weirdo command `ldconfig` fixed /etc/ and it worked again.
