I'm trying to install the latest version of Kino, but am making the newbie realization that the "tree" of dependencies can be very large, especially when your ISP access is dial-up. Is there any database out the that tracks the dependencies of mainstream applications and could give me an idea of how many days of dial-up downloading I have ahead?
Maybe my problem is that I have SUSE personal, rather than a more robust pro. distro?
On another note, when I do a ./configure and see a required package, should I worry about downloading a version that is too new compared to the required version listed?
