missing dependencies


Hi all,

Im trying to install webalizer on mandrake, i have downloaded the rpm for this from rpmfind.

The problem is when installing it reports back saying:

failed dependencies:
lidgd.so.2
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3)

As you may be able to work out im a very new to linux so would like to know whats the best way to go about this so future problems can be sorted also.

Thank you for any advice.

Andy

rpm for libgd.so.2:

http://at.rpmfind.net/opsys/linux/RP...3mdk.i586.html

rpm for libc.so.6:

http://at.rpmfind.net/opsys/linux/RP...0mdk.i586.html

Hope that helps. Just install the above two rpms first, then try re-installing your application.

basically your system is getting old.... you can either upgrade the files carefully to modernise it a bit, or try compiling the package you are after from source rather than precompiled, as this is much less strict about what it requires. OR choose an older version... there may well be one hidden on your distro cd's....

Upgrading the operating system shouldn't be necessary. The rpm sources I gave you were for Mandrake 9.1. I didn't see your version number was 9. Here is the rpm giving you libc.so.6 for Mandrake 9:

http://at.rpmfind.net/opsys/linux/RP...2mdk.i586.html

Mandrake 9.0 uses glibc-2.2.5 instead of 2.3.1 in Mandrake 9.1.

It was my experience that Mandrake 9.0 was full of bugs, so upgarding might not be a bad idea anyhow. 9.1 is a lot better and it looks like 9.2 will improve on that.
