If you have problem with the new Blender 2.5 Alpha 2 version under linux.
./blender -d
./blender: error while loading shared libraries: libpcre.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I use a 64bit gentoo linux version, my workaround is:

- login as root or use su or sudo
- cd /lib64/ (/lib or /lib32 for other version)
- ln -s libpcre.so.0.0.1 libpcre.so.3


thx@all
