Red face libpq.so.4 is there, but RPM thinks it isn't


Hi I'm new to Linux and I'm basically confused why RPM thinks that I don't have these libraries when they are really where they should be, mostly in the /usr/local/pgsql/lib directory. I need to know how to tell RPM where they are, so it stops claiming that they don't exist and I can install this program:

Quote:
[mschrank@192 Desktop]$ rpm -i pgadmin3-1.4.1-1hjh.i586.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libpq.so.4 is needed by pgadmin3-1.4.1-1hjh.i586

Thank you,

Matt

You should be running rpm as root, not your normal user. If that doesn't do it...

Did you install the libraries with RPM? RPM only "knows" about stuff in RPM packages that it installed (it doesn't scan your system looking for other libraries/software).

Usually in these cases when I'm sure I have the dependencies fulfilled, I just use the --nodeps flag to tell rpm not to stop on missing dependencies. If you don't actually have all the dependencies, though, then the installed software will not work.

edit to add:

This is why it's a good idea to install as much as possible via RPM. You might want to remove the software you installed by other means and re-install the appropriate RPM.
