libmk4.so.1


Hi, I'm a Linux newbie. I just installed redhat 9 and while trying to install some programs I get the error:

error: Failed dependencies:
libmk4.so.1 is needed by grub-client-1.0.5-2.

I have metakit installed and libmk4.so is in my /lib folder. Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Hi!
it sounds like either you don't have the file on your system, or the installation process cannot find it.
in a console type
Code:
whereis libmk4.so.1
if the output is
Code:
libmk4.so.1:
then you don't have it on your system. You should install the package containing that file (go to http://www.rpmfind.net/ and look for the package you need) or maybe you have a package manager (I don't know redhat) which helps you in that matter

if the command whereis returns the path of the file 'libmk4.so.1', then you have to tell that to the new package you are trying to install. I have an idea about how can it be done compiling from source, but I doesn't seem your case (or am I wrong?).
Anyway, I encourage you to check this. And tell us the results and more questions. You could also say how are you installing the package (from source, using the rpm program from console or using a package manager)
I hope it helps...
Regards

I do not have it on my system and when I do a search on RPMfind.net it shows that the file is in metakit. I have metakit installed.

I am installing by using rpm -i nameofRPM

thank you, anymore help would be greatly appreciated.

you could try to force or upgrade the installation of metakit.
e.g:
rpm -U newVersionOfYourRPM

rpm -i --force newVersionOfYOURRPM

try "man rpm" for more options.
good luck.
