Missing libraries or not detected?


Hey folks, I've encountered this type of problem several times when installing a package and i often end up not installing it at all... I'm speaking about the situation depicted below. In this scenario i presumed that i not only have that library (libpng.so.0) but a newer version (libpng.so.3). Or am i wrong? Even if i still require the libpng.so.0 how can i get it? Where do you search for libraries normally?

Thanks in advance.

[root@tiger madvip]# rpm -ivh eterm-0.7.5-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libpng.so.0 is needed by eterm-0.7.5-1
libjpeg.so.6 is needed by eterm-0.7.5-1
libIm.so.0 is needed by eterm-0.7.5-1
[root@tiger madvip]# locate libpng
/usr/lib/libpng.so.3
/usr/lib/libpng.so.3.1.2.2
/usr/lib/libpng12.so.0
/usr/lib/libpng12.so.0.1.2.2
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/libpng12.pc
/usr/lib/libpng.so.2.1.0.13
/usr/lib/libpng.so.2
/usr/lib/libpng.a
/usr/lib/libpng.so
/usr/lib/libpng12.a
/usr/lib/libpng12.so

if you get errors like this, always go to http://rpmfind.net and search for the file, you will then get a list of suitable packages.
