The file is not there; you have a symbolic link pointing to itself at that location, or so it seems from the output of the ls command you listed.

I am having problem when running my lua code as an embedded code in another program.  It run well as a standalone.  The error I am getting when running it is :

When I ls the /usr/local/share/lua/5.1/mime.lua, it is actually there already:

# ls /usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/mime.lua -al
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 2008-07-14 09:11 /usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/mime.lua -> /usr/local/lua/5.1/mime.lua

Why is lua still complaining about not able to find the file?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
