Can't get the required packages to work....
 
I'm trying to install nicotine, a slsk client. I don't know how to install from the source so I googled it and found an rpm. After trying to install it I was told by package manager that I needed:

python-wxPython >= 2.4.0
python-pyvorbis
python-pygtk-gtk >= 2.0.0
python-numpy

So I installed these rpms:

wxPythonGTK-py2.3-2.4.2.4.-1.src.rpm
pyvorbis-1.3-1_freevo.src.rpm
pygtk2-2.0.0-2.src.rpm
numpy-23.1-2.rh8.0.at.src.rpm

I got them from rpm.pbone.net and installed them with the rpm -ivh command as root, everything installed fine. But when I go back to try and install nicotine I get the same message about needing the same stuff. Did I install them wrong, are they the wrong packages??

HELP!

you installed .src.rpm files, which installs the source for these packages to your computer, but not the packages themselves. you need to download the i386/i586/i686.rpm files (whichever is more applicable) if i am not mistaken.

oh....

Do you know of any other good sites to get rpms? Rpmfind.net and rpm.pbone.net only had the .src.rpm files. If the source is installed now, is there an easy way to compile it? I don't even know where it would've installed to.

i'll try to help as much as possible, although i haven't used red hat in a while (i had too many problems, and since it's not supported any more i figured i'd just quit using it altogether). assuming you're using redhat 8x (since your numpy pkg says rh8.0), try these:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3?stat...reevo.i386.rpm
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html

and i think this will work if you already have version 2.3 of wxPython installed:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html

but if you have 2.2 or 2.1, you will have to use one of these (respectively):

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html

i'm not sure about pygtk; i didn't really find any rpms that were version 2 except this one:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html

which wasn't explicitly for redhat 8 (the link says redhat other), and i'm not sure if the fact that it's a devel pkg will throw it off. if i were you, i would recommend trying apt-get--a lot of redhat users like it a lot--or installing from source, which is actually easier than it sounds. good luck.

Thanx for the links, how does one install from the source??
