[Pharo-project] CogVM driver vs executable

In response to my posting


I got feedback from people trying to use SSL with Eliot's CogVM 


instead of the Pharo one that I normally use


They reported that it did not work for them.

So I tried this myself on my Ubuntu 11.10 (GNU/Linux 3.0.0-14-virtual i686) server and yes it fails with 'can't infer base LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Aborting.' which was discussed in this list before. I am not qualified to really understand those discussions.

But when I used the executable 'inside' coglinux/lib/squeak/4.0-2522/squeak everything worked as expected.

So the question is what does the driver (I don't know if that is the right word) coglinux/squeak or coglinux/bin/squeak do ?
Since the pharo variant seems to operate fine without it, do we need the driver ?
