Enlightenment: Cyberhemeroids


Dear All:

OK so grrr I am installing Enlightenment for Fedora Core 3, but when I downloaded "enlightenment-0.16.7.2-1.fc3.i386.rpm" and it says it cannot install because it needs "imlib2" and "liblmlib2.so.1". So I download "imlib-2.1.1.2-1.i386.rpm" and then when I double click that to check for package dependencies, etc., it says I need "imlib2-loader_argb," "imlib2-loader_jpeg," and "imlib2-loader_png." So ok, I download a package that contains all three of those things, "libimlib2_1-loaders-1.0.6-4mdk.i586.rpm" and when I try to check that for dependencies, it says I need "libimlib2_1" and liblmlib2.so.1". OK so to review, the second package refers me to the third one, and the third one refers me to the second one. And on top of that, I dont know how to extract any of them.

Long story short, what should I do, and how to I extract the package to install in a terminal window once I get this sorted out? I tried typing "rpm [name of file].rpm" and that only gave min information about the package, and didn't extract it. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Richard

what you should really do, to save all these headaches, is install [wiki]apt[/wiki] and [wiki]synaptic[/wiki].

core: http://download.atrpms.net/productio...c3.at.i386.rpm
GUI: http://download.atrpms.net/testing/p...c3.at.i386.rpm
configuration: http://download.atrpms.net/productio...c3.at.i386.rpm

this is an rpm management tool, which will download and install EVERYTHING for you automatically. i'm not totallly sure if enlightenment will be in there... probably it will, but the rest of the imlib stuff certainly will be. infact all of imlin will be on your distro cd's... but apt is still less hassle long term.

OK when I try in install apt (I tried both "rpm -ivh apt-*.rpm" and " rpm -ivh apt-0.5.5cnc5-fr0.rh73.2.i386.rpm") It says:

warning: only V3 signatures can be verified, skipping V4 signature
error: Failed dependencies:
librpm-4.0.4.so is needed by apt-0.5.5cnc5-fr0.rh73.2.i386
librpmdb-4.0.4.so is needed by apt-0.5.5cnc5-fr0.rh73.2.i386
librpmio-4.0.4.so is needed by apt-0.5.5cnc5-fr0.rh73.2.i386

What the hell does that mean? ugg.

Sincerely,
Richard

OK I downloaded apt-get and ran apt-get dist-upgrade and stuff upgraded and opened, and I ran apt-get install synaptic and that seemed to work. Then, I clicked on your first link of the three, Chris, and got that I still was missing some files or something. I went to install from the website http://www.fedora.us/wiki/FedoraHOWTO, it said that Fedora Core 3 is "coming soon" and there isn't a package for that yet. But anyway, some major stuff installed, HelixPlayer, etc, and yet I can't run any of your links without it saying something like I'm missing "/etc/apt/apt.conf" and /etc/apt/sources.list". Help!

Sincerely,
Richard

Sorry one more thing I had to download apt-get from an external site is that ok cause the link that acid_kewpie gave me only gave me a summary of what apt-get does, not how to get it. So sorry if I didn't use your link.

Sincerely,
Richard
