My guess is:

You may be looking for:

Look for both libxml and libxml2

You may need libxml2 instead of libxml.

I've been looking around, and there doesn't seem to be a libxml.so.2

libxml2 includes libxml2.so.2 and you can get the rpm here:
http://www.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/ma...1mdk.i586.html

libxml includeslibxml.so.1 and you can get the rpm here:
http://www.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/ma...3mdk.i586.html

You may already have both installed.
Making a symlink from libxml.so.2 to libxml2.so.2 might do the trick for you, or else, it might not.

In Mandrake 9.0 libxml installed as libxml.so.2. Appearantly fidelio depends on having an exact version of libxml. So fidelio-0.9.4cvs-1 works with libxml.so.2.

Now you have gone to Mandrake 9.1 and it has a different version of libxml installed. To confuse matters libxml changed its name somewhere about then to libxml2.

To find out what version of libxml you have installed log in as root and issue the following commands:
find /usr -iname "*libxml.so*"
find /usr -iname "*libxml2.so*"

From your first post I began looking for libxml.so.2 using Google. At the site I mentioned I found that libxml.so.2 is provided by the package
libxml2-2.2.2-2mdk.i586. I did not realize that this is a for pay Mandrake
site. Sorry.

So, you might be able to find a version of libxml that provides libxml.so.2 and install it to replace your current version of libxml. But now that I have
thought through your problem for a second time I think that would be a poor
solution because there are probably other things that depend on libxml besides fidelio and changing libxml might be a major upheaval.

Instead I would recommend that you find a version of fidelio that works with
whatever version of libxml/libxml2 that is installed in Mandrake 9.1.
