Dependencies checker and downloader?


I'm tired knowing every RPM I'm gonna unpack requests a lib which I don't have installed. Does exist something that checks and downloads those dependencies from a repository?

Dunno about SuSE, so I can't really say, but

when I had a mandrake install, if I stuck to "mandrakised" rpm's then I never had a problem with dependencies. Not once.

Whereas, if I tried to use either a proper redhat/fedora one, or a SuSE one, I had nothing but problems.

So, my suggestion is to stick with SuSE rpms unless they're not available, then maybe you should try tarballs (tar.gz and similar).

regards

John

Wouldn't apt do the job well?

http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/ This explains how to setup apt-get with SuSE.
