Installing software, Dependency games
Obviously I'm new to linux, and I have this silly question that you guys all know already. I'm trying to install proftpd but I'm getting unsatisfied dependencies. This is in Suse 10.0 Last time I played around with linux I was using Mandrake, and the same thing happened to me. What I mean is every time I want to install something, I have to install something else and it finally steered me away. I feel like a memory heap, and I overflow forgetting what I was orginally set out to do.
I think mandrake used to have something like easy rpm, or urpmi or something that would automatically install all necessary dependencies from some specified server. I'm really getting frustrated, and I was hoping you guys could point me in the right direction. I know its not a hard task, but its very tedious.
Maybe I'm just too used to windows and all the exe/msi installers?
Thanks very much.
