Unhappy Failed dependencies


There are two programs that I'm trying to install that keep getting this Failed dependencies error.

First is:
# rpm -ivh Eterm-0.9.2-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
imlib2 is needed by Eterm-0.9.2-1
libImlib2.so.1 is need by Eterm-0.9.2-1
libast.so.1 is need by Eterm-0.9.2-1
#

Second is:
# rpm -ivh mplayer-common-0.90-1.i386.rpm
warning: only V3 signatures can be verified, skipping V4 signature
error: Failed dependencies:
mplayer = 0.90 is need by mplayer-common-0.90-1
#


needs help once again

Well, I'm not sure about the first one, but I could not get eterm to work either. Try aterm...It's great and easy to compile:

http://aterm.sourceforge.net/

Though, if you need to really install eterm, imlib2-devel, imlib2, libmonobo(I think) and libmonobo-devel(I think) is what you are looking for.

About mplayer, rpm's are bad. Try compiling it from source instead. It's just as easy and won't make you tear your hairs apart with dependancies...

RPM's should be banned. Each distro has it's own set of RPM's... each distro version (RH9.0, RH7.0, which are the same distros) uses differents RPM's. It's bad for the user (time consuming, noone knows which package to install and peoples without time, simply uses another OS, unfortunately), bad for Linux developers (they/we need to release this package, that package) and etc. Try compiling from source as often as you can or if you use RedHat, try getting apt-get.

Good luck

I got aterm to work, yet Eterm looks such my better.
What do you mean compiling from source?
I did download apt-get for RH9(is my system)
but I don't fully understand how it works.
got any good sites to read up on about "source" or apt-get?

Hi Umbrella !!

Judging by your nickname Resident Evil fan I suppose hehe. Well, try reading this thread, so you will understand compiling and using apt-get well:

Oh yeah... check aterm -help. Most of the peoples installing terminals are looking for transparency effect ( I also think it's cool ). If that's what you are looking for, aterm does it

aterm -tr -sh <numer from 0 - 100, where 100 is totally transparent>

i downloaded apt-get but i don't think the install worked, i got a few other versions but i think its pointless to install it because my linux box isn't on my network. i downloaded bashish not aterm, i'm taking a look for aterm on google right now thanks again

hehe, I also love Capcom Games... all of them, Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Megaman .
Well, when you mean network, do you mean that you connect to the internet thru a modem? If so, it should still help anyway, but would be slow for large packages (I think, I've never tried that with a modem, only broadband)

Good luck Sorry I could not help ya with eterm, but maybe someone here will
