ATrpms and RPMs


Hey All,

I am trying to maintain my FC4 system using yum; however, yum has not installed a needed library -- "libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1".

I can find an rpm for LibXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1. I'm worried that installing it would be akin to using differing yum repositories; thereby diminishing my machine's ability to update.

Perhaps there is a way to automatically download this library using Yum and ATRPMS, or should I go ahead and install the rpm?

Below are the yum config files -- if they might be helpful:

Thanks!

I don't think there's any need for concern. I have several i586 and i686 computers that I'm trying to set up as nearly identically as I can. To reduce download time, I saved all the RPMs that up2date installed. The problem was that I saved the RPMs on an i686 and then tried to load them on a i586. Since most of the RPMs had been compiled for i386, they had no difficulty installing on either system. But the few that were compiled for i686 refused to install on the i586 (lucky for me). So I installed the RPMs that would install and went back to up2date to download and install the rest.

I've also had the experience of various RPMs I was trying to install failing due to a dependency. I generally Googled the missing file name to find the RPM(s) that would satisfy the dependency, then downloaded and installed it (or them). As far as I can tell, I've not had any problems doing things this way.

Stop worrying. You'll live longer.

Thanks for the reply. Decided to go with a more current driver, then the dependency issue went away.

True, but I'll spend less of it fixing my computers. Sorta like joggers that get one extra minute for every five the run. It's a great deal -- if you like to run
