I am still Newbie to Linux, using CentOS 4.4 for last two months. Installation Process on Linux seems more difficult than Windows, specially analyzing dependencies. Like few days before I searched web for downloader and found D4x, now downloaded its RPM and trying to install, it gives a long list of files missing, now how to can I search each of them, it is very difficult to find all.
Similarly, I tried #yum install d4x, same result found, is it some command that can automatically download all dependencies ..
Is there a line in there that says "No package D4x available."? If so that means that the particular package is not available from the repos you are using. If there is no such line that would indicate that it is already installed.
Where did you get this rpm from? Please post link.
I would be careful mixing distro repos. Centos5 was based on FC6. I think Centos4 was based on FC3(?). So even if you wanted to try and use Fedora packages on Centos you would want to stick to the version that it was based on. Newer versions will probably have newer dependencies and mixing and matching can bring down a system pretty fast.
