Librarie download


Hi everybody,
I want to install, PGCalc(a scientific calculator), via RPM, but I get the following message:
<ome/plutonas/Desktop/pgcalc2-2.2-4mdk.i586.rpm;echo RESULT=$?
error: failed dependencies:
libaudio.so.2 is needed by pgcalc2-2.2-4mdk
libfontconfig.so.1 is needed by pgcalc2-2.2-4mdk
libXcursor.so.1 is needed by pgcalc2-2.2-42-4mdkmdk
libXft.so.2 is needed by pgcalc2-2.2-4mdk
libXinerama.so.1 is needed by pgcalc2-2.
libXrandr.so.2 is needed by pgcalc2-2.2-4mdk

Where can I find this libraries in order to install them, and how do I install them?
Thanks in advance

google is a good place, or rpmfind.net

the libraries are part of other rpm's so just install them in the same way. (man rpm for more help)

either search the library name in rpmfind.net or search for "provides <library_name>" in google.

You should consider installing yum, an rpm installer. It makes installing rpm's easy, and can often find the package that you want quickly. To install programs, you simply run

yum -y install programname

This will download the required rpm, and usually resolve most dependencies automatically.

You can find yum here: http://www.linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/download.ptml. Some newer distros automatically come with it installed, so you might want to try that first.

Thanks a lot for the fast answers.
I tryed the way in the first answer at the beggining but another problem occured. I downloaded the first library,
and when I wanted to install it via RPM there was another library missing. I downloaded this too, and then I could
not install it again because another one was missing. So I gave up.
For the yum, I think it's a better idea, but at the link you gave me, I could not find an edition for Mandrake Linux which
I use.
What would you do now?

I found a version on rpmfind.net for Mandrake. It is for Mandrake 10.0.

RPMs for other distros (including other Mandrake distros) can be found at
