i cannot get ppp set up on mandriva


[flint@localhost floppy]$ ls
ppp-2.4.2-8mdk.src.rpm* ppp-2.4.3-5mdk10.1.i586.rpm*
[flint@localhost floppy]$ rpm -i ppp-2.4.3-5mdk10.1.i586.rpm
warning: ppp-2.4.3-5mdk10.1.i586.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID b56a8bac
error: Failed dependencies:
libpcap.so.0 is needed by ppp-2.4.3-5mdk10.1

^ tried to install error - failed dependancy

[flint@localhost floppy]$ ls /usr/lib/libpcap.so.0
/usr/lib/libpcap.so.0@
[flint@localhost floppy]$

^ libpcap.so.0 is in fact in usr/lib (where it should be)

this is from a clean install of mandriva i have tried it with other versions of the ppp package - same result

can anyone help me?
i've tried it as root too

If the libpcap package checks out OK (symlinks to the actual library), and ppp doesn't mention needing a specific version of libpcap (like 0.8.4 when you have 0.8.3 installed) there's two things you can try. One is compiling an rpm from the ppp .src.rpm and see if that will install without problems. The other option is to --install using --force. Really not recommended (using --force never is) but if nothing else works...

--force won't help there, you'd need --nodeps.
