i will try also this two dialers,but in the mean time i tried to install wvdial....see the results..
now before proceeding i need to unsertand how linux works regarding packaging apply...
i'm alinux newbye but not a computer newbye....
My operating system is mandrake 10.1 kernel 2.6
below the line i listed the error i got applying the package and my comment
i rescue all packages from a set of Fedora CDroms
because mandrake 10.1 CDs does not provide wvdial and dependencies...
the error i get is clear.....it does not proceed because a code regression....
now before proceeding i have to clarify my doubts.....
doubts are about rpm and source installations.....
i worked many years on mainframes where product were installed in the same way
with an application similar to rpm that check all dependencies before proceeding..
in this way a database keep track about what is installed in the system....
then it was possible to just compile and link the source code ....
i see that the same happens in the linux operating system...
who estabilish rpm dependencies.....?
is the one that build the rpm package ? or there is an universal rule
recognized by all the linux distributions ?
example i installed mozilla from the fedora Cd,it calls some dependencies...it
works fine .then i unistalled mandrake and dep ,and i installed from the mandrake cd
and it call other very different dependencies,and it works fine too
so i'm a little bit confused.....
version of mandrake where 1.7.3 (fedora) and 1.7.2 (Mandrake)....
modification 2 instead of 3....
i installed in the past some linux products having the source code...
it needs the compiler libraries,and the kernel source libraries(i immagine to
rescue some system macroes needeed to compile)....but in this way we have
not the dependencies check...
what means ? that the source code already provide all needed libraries ?
(may be then in the system we can have some duplicated file of a different version?)
now returning to my situation...in order to have wvdial operating what i have to do ?
install the source code ? (where is possible to download ?)
or copying only the dep libraries libcrypto.so.4 libssl.so.4 from somewhere..
it is possible to extract it from rpm package ?
(libwvstreams is available as source from the mandrake rpm....)
thanks in advance.
(wvdial requires two libraries,this two libraries are contianed into libwvstream
package,that requires two other libraries contained into openssl
openssl is already installed in newer version that does not contain the two libraries...
