with many packages i try to install i am confronted with dependency errors, but when i check up on these i find they are present. for example: libpng.so.3 is required by many a few things i've tried to install, but when i check back, libpng is in fact installed.
the same sort of thing happens when i try to compile the source as well. when trying to compile something (can't remember what) it told me zlib version 1.14 or more was required, which i have. so what's going on? i can't install anything!!!
