Fixing Library Problems

Recently I had an issue getting the GOG version of Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition working on Mageia Linux. The error was similar to that which I've seen when troubleshooting Baldur's Gate on Fedora. The solution below should work regardless of Linux distribution.

./IcewindDale64: /lib64/ version `OPENSSL_1.0.0' not found (required by ./IcewindDale64)
./IcewindDale64: /lib64/ version `OPENSSL_1.0.0' not found (required by ./IcewindDale64)

Unlike with Baldur's Gate (GOG), Icewind Dale Enhanced is a 64-bit application, so the 32-bit solution that I detailed there doesn't work. The solution here is to download and extract the two missing files to the (GOG) Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition folder, inside the game directory.

You can download the package from the Ubuntu archives:

Take these two files:


Copy them to:

(your home directory)/GOG Games/Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition/game/

The game should launch just fine now.
