unable to use Yast with SUSE 9.0


Hello
I am a newBee when it comes to installing in linux

When i try to install anything and use YAST it fails,
I installed sun creater2 and firefox, that went ok cause they have their own installer procedure.

For this printer the drivers and software do not came with an installer so i need to use yast.
Somehow I have the feeling I do not know how yast works, It should be there to help me but, till now it brings questions I cant answer.

Canon provided 4 files for this printer(pixma iP1500)

bjfilter-common-2.50-2.i386.rpm
Reaction YAST libpopt.so.0 not available

bjfilter-pixmaip1500-2.50-2.i386.rpm

Reaction YAST bjfilter-common not available
Reaction YAST bjfilter-pixmai1500 not availible



bjfilter-common-2.50-2.src.rpm
Reaction YAST No reaction, yast disappears

bjfilter-pixmaip1500-lprng-2.50-2.i386.rpm
Reaction YAST bjfilter-common not available
Reaction YAST bjfilter-pixmai1500 2.50-2 conf... not available
Reaction YAST bjfilter-pixmai1500 not available


In yast i searched for libpopt, nothing came up.

Does anybody know what my problem is?

Should i install this libpopt.so.0 first? Why is it not in the pacage from canon? how do i get it/
Witch of the files, provided by canon, should i use?

Any help wil be much appriciated

Did you set up the installation source repositories?

I googled libpopt.so.0 and found that it is included in a package of library files called popt. You should go look for a Suse RPM like "popt-1.6.4xxxxx.rpm". Install that first. I think you can just double click RPM files in Konqueror it will start up the install program (maybe yast ?). Then install the other RPM's.

Good luck.

I do not know if i set up the source repo, When i installed suse i try to mark as most as possible but not sure if that means i have those source files now, how can i check that? and if i did do you think the bjfilter-common-2.50-2.src.rpm can be installed using yast?

I found it on the install dvd file:/media/dvd/suse/i586/popt-1.7-70.i586.rpm
Yast is working on it now, altering systemConfigurations, he is working on that for more that 15 min with no hard disk activity, I think there are some more problem areas.

Try installing the driver again, even if Yast doe not finish (just close it). These are just library files. It will have to rebuild the library file list. There is a command for that, or you can just reboot before trying to install the driver. Let us know if it works.

Good luck.

problems with newer versions?

It appears I installed libpopt.so.1, I suppose its newer than libpopt.so.0
Yast offers to ignore this libpopt.so.0 as a consequence of system instabilities
Is that a wise thing to do?

Ok, you can let it ignore it but it probably won't run. Try this in a shell:

locate libpopt.so.0

then this:

locate libpopt.so.1

On my system I get this:

chuck@tbird:~$ locate libpopt.so.0
/usr/lib/libpopt.so.0
/usr/lib/libpopt.so.0.0.0
chuck@tbird:~$ locate libpopt.so.1
chuck@tbird:~$


So there is no libpopt.so.1. Let us know what you get. It might be that you already have libpopt.so.0.

I did not have the locate command, used a ui search option and found these (also) in /usr/lib
linux:/usr/lib # whoami
root
linux:/usr/lib # ls -ltar libpopt*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 32176 2003-09-23 17:10 libpopt.so.1.0.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 2006-05-22 14:34 libpopt.so.1 -> libpopt.so.1.0.0


so no .0

Now i realize I do not have a problem with yast, its those dependencies that are so hard to fullfil, when i install fireFox or Creator, they come with a compleet package of all they need, Now this driver for my printer needs problebly old versions of this library libpopt.so.?
This dependency, is it a static thing? the libs from canon need and problely look for libpopt.so.0 but what if i just copy the libpopt.so.1 to .0 in the usr/lib. will it work? is that an easy question?
Is it possible to compile some source to this lib Or to change the dependancy

Ok this tread is as dead as....
Its not about yast anyMore. more about libpopt.so.0 in combination with suse 9.0

I found a suggestion to make a link file to the libpopt.so.1 named libpopt.so.0

I do not know if that was the breaktough of that i did something desparate with the installing of the printer, anyway now i can print using a printer named "<lp>" Its a bit strange but ok, I am glad it works so i dont change it.


Thanks for your reactions
