Not able to install E-Donkey on Red Hat 9.


Hi,

I am using Red Hat 9.

I am not able to install E-Donkey P2P software. On trying to do the same it says that libexpat.so. 1 is missing.

[manish@manish RPM]$ rpm -Uvh ed2k-gtk-gui-0.6.3-2.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libexpat.so.1 is needed by ed2k-gtk-gui-0.6.3-2

Could you plz let me know what is wrong on my end.


I have downloaded the RPM package from Ehttp://ed2k-gtk-gui.sourceforge.net/download.shtml

Regards,
Manish.

AFAIK to install RPMs you must use the "i" switch not the "U", so your command must be:
Code:
rpm -ivh ed2k-gtk-gui-0.6.3-2.i386.rpm
Also you need libexpat libraries to solve dependencies.

Thanks for your reply.

I was able to find the RPM for libexpat.so.1 at

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...mit=Search+...

and after installing this there was no problem with the installation of E-Donkey.

Could you plz tell me what is the difference between running RPM package with rpm -Uvh or rpm -ivh or rpm -i.

I am not sure about it as I have seen people doing it all three wasy..:-)

Thanks once again.
Manish.

-U: upgrade an existing package
-i: install a package

that is not necessary. The rpm manager will look to see if the package is installed and upgrade it otherwise it will install it.

Therefore you never have to use the -i switch only the -U switch.

always install with -Uvh
