Unhappy Dependencies


I have been struggling with dependencies all day and I have RTFM plus Google searches and searches in forums.

I am trying to install enlightenment and I need to install liblmlib.so.1 first and I can't find it anywhere. I installed imlib, but it doesn't seem to be in there.

Also I have been trying to install some other rpm packages and find that the list of dependencies they show as lacking are already installed on my computer, and I'm wondering what that means.

It should be obvious by now that I haven't a clue, so I would appreciate any and all suggestions [unless someone tries to send me back to XP].

Thanks, zoey

From "man rpm":

--nodeps
Donít do a dependency check before installing or upgrading a
package.

You can use this switch to install an rpm in spite of its dependencies not being met. It could work.

You can try to install via yum because this will aumaticaly find and install all dependencies.

If you have installed imlib, have you installed the devel of the package too? This one includes the headers so enlightment knows where the libs are installed. Search for imlib-devel-same_version.rpm

Checked YUM; Dag has Enlightenment available - sure his repository also covers the needed libs

Thanks for your suggestions everyone.

I attempted to install imlib-devel, but it won't install because it needs xorg-x11-libs and when a attempt to install that using apt-get, I am informed that I already have the latest version installed.

I haven't figured out how to use YUM as of yet, I get to a certain point and can go no further because I don't understand which of the options I should choose. That research is for another day!

My home file is full of all kinds of downloaded rpms each of which seems to need to be installed before another one can be. Tis a puzzlement maybeto be untangled tomorrow.

Zoey, YUM is easy - first thing is to make sure your /etc/yum.conf is pointing to the right depositories: I'll post mine for you to gedit if you want - never had a problem with it and can install almost anything with it.

[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
retries=20

[base]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/

[updates-released]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/$releasever/$basearch/

#[updates-testing]
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Unreleased Updates
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/testing/$releasever/$basearch/

#[development]
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch/


[dag]
name=Fedora Core 1 Dag Wieers' repository
baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/redhat/fc$releasever/en/i386/dag


[livna-stable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
baseurl= http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/yum/stable
gpgcheck=1

[livna-unstable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (unstable)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/yum/unstable
gpgcheck=1

[livna-testing]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/yum/testing
gpgcheck=1

Here's a link to an explanation of the YUM commands:
http://www.fedora.us/wiki/FedoraHOWTO

So, in your case, you would change to SU and use 'yum search enlightenment', which will show you that DAG has it.... then install with 'yum install enlightenment' which will take care of the dependencies issues, etc. Once installed, just exit ouf of SU and you should be fine.

OK, just Ol'Bob, I tried the yum commands that you suggested. The first one got me a list of a bunch of what looked like updates for various programs. The second one got the message that yum can't find enlightenment.

Are all of those commands in your post for editing my yum file? If so, I will give it a good try, although I'm not sure that I can find it, to say nothing of editing it!

So far about all that I have managed to do is to get Thunderbird and Grisby installed. I keep trying things though, and reading, and I am learning. It is true that the learning curve for Linux is very steep, especially for we grandmotherly types.

Thanks for your help. zoey

Zoey, you can update your system with YUM instead of Up2date, which is what I do: I simply sign in as SU, then type 'yum update' and it will go to those repositories and find the programs that need updates and then ask your permission to do so.

What I was trying to do, however, is to have you add Dag Wier's repository to your 'yum.conf' file, so that you could get Enlightenment and have YUM install it. If you don't want to copy all of my yum.conf file, you can simply highlight the lines:

[dag]
name=Fedora Core 1 Dag Wieers' repository
baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/redhat/fc$releasever/en/i386/dag

then right-click and select 'copy'. Now, open a terminal, type 'su' and give your password, then type:
cd /etc
gedit yum.conf
This will open an editor. You can then 'paste' the dag wier's lines into the repository information and then save and close.

Now, you have changed your yum.conf file so when you type: "yum install enlightenment" it will look at the dag wier's repository and find it.

Sorry if this is kinda aimed at a newbie level but I didn't want to exclude anything.

No prob, Zoey, I'm still there myself - with a LONG way to go! Here's some sites that I've found helpful; check them out when you get the time:

(could add more, but these will put you to sleep easily enough)

Good luck on the Enlightenment project - keep us posted!

Thanks for all of the neat links.

I haven't gotten as far as I had hoped. I did get the yum file edited which was a first, but it couldn't find enlightenment at Dag Wier's repository either. Yum did find enlightenment's database access library, which I thought sounded good, so I installed that.

I still can't install the enlightenment rpm that I downloaded before attempting to use yum, because there are still dependency issues.

I guess that it is back to more reading! zoey

Try Apt/Synaptic.

Install Apt(a tool that is similar to yum).
#rpm -Uvh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrp...c2.fr.i386.rpm

Install synaptic:
#apt-get install synaptic

Add Dag:
#vi /etc/apt/sources.list
press Insert
add:
rpm http://apt.sw.be fedora/2/en/i386 dag
press Esc
type :wq! (will save and exit vi)

Synaptic should now be in your menu under "system tools"(I think].
If it's not, open a console and type synaptic

First click on refresh.
Install everything you need.

Have fun.

I have come all the way around to my first post in this thread. I still need to install liblmlib.so.1. That is the only thing keeping me from being able to install enlightenment manually.

I was using apt and synaptic before I tried yum. None of the 3 can find my needed file nor can they seem to find enlightenment.

I have done searches [Google and also RPM searches] and I have been unable to find liblmib.so.1. I have found posts from other people who are also trying to find it, but so far I have found no links. zoey :-}

Since I've been less than no help so far (*sigh*), hang with me a moment longer and we might get through this. I think that the problem is that you are searching for liblmlib.so.1 when the real file is libimlib.so.1. A google search of that one came up with a lot more info, plus rpm's at a few sites, such as: http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i586.rpm.html
If you look at the Enlightenment file lists from their page, imlib2 is a featured download, which leads me to believe that spelling is correct..

JustOl'Bob, you have been a lot of help! You gave me some good links to check out, plus I now know how to edit a file and have done it twice. I didn't know how to do that before.

I just tried to install enlightenment again and copied down the file name . It is listed as liblmlib.so.1 with the extra l. I have found other people looking for the same file with the same spelling with a Goggle search and also with some forum searches.

I have run into another "weird Linux situation". I am trying to add a couple of applets to the Gnome panel and there is a dependency issue for both of them also. Both say that they need libpanel_applet.so.0. A search reveals that it is found in the Gnome core. Since I am running Gnome, I must have the Gnome core already right? What happens if I try to install another Gnome core? How do I find out which Gnome core I am running?

That is probably more than enough questions for one post. zoey
