This stuff all new to you?

Yes it is a lot longer with the complete (and repeating) version number.
If it barfs, we'll worry then. Programs expect the symlink, because they
don't know what silly version numbers are. So they expect libjack.so to
point to your latest one.

There will be a directory /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ with files in it. Make sure
one of them says /usr/lib this way

cd /etc/ld.so.conf.d/
grep \/usr\/lib    *

That should show you the lines with /usr/lib in them. As long as there's
one, go away. If not, add it to one.

This is elementary command line stuff. I would suggest that you continue
learning about the weird and wonderful tools in linux. Joining a support
mailing list or forum for your particular distribution can be
educational. For nearly any command above, there is a man page which
tells you how to use it (e.g. man grep). If you really want to learn the
system, do a linux from scratch by hand - no automatic tools.
