Question Installing Libraries


I am running Caldera eDesktop 2.4

I am trying to install new programs. Some appear to have unsatisfied library dependancies. In this case DivxPlayer for Linux (which seemed to install fine), once I tried to run the app, declared "Error in loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open object fle: No suh file or directory"

In an attempt to correct this I downloaded and 'installed' glibc-2.2.1-3.src.rpm, with the Kpackage rpm loader. I was under the impression that library rpms load and configure the libraries properly. Are there further steps I need to take after running Kpackage on the rpm to get the system to 'recognize' my libraries? Am I somehow on the wrong track here?

I am having similar confusion with other rpm packages, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

When such error occurs it's always a good idea to look if you have different version of this library. Those numbers at the end of file name - it's version number. So if you have something similar, you may try just to make symlink to the file you have and name the symlink as your programs wish. Works in 90% cases.

That is a source rpm, does kpackage automatically compile them? I wouldn't have thought so.

Code:
rpm -ba file.spec
In your SPECS directory (probably somewhere down the /usr/src/RPM/ tree)
