RPM failed dependencies.


I am attempting to install fnlib on Slack 10.1 so I can get Enlightenment working. The problem is that I am attempting to install the RPM and it says that it failed all dependencies even though I am able to find the needed packages and libraries on the drive. I tried rpmdb --rebuilddb, but this doesn't seem to work.

Try to install needed packages one by one.That way you will find what is wrong.

The needed packages are already on my system and enlightenment recognizes that. I tried with a few other packages and it looks like I almost always have to run rpm with --nodeps to get it to go. My problem is that RPM isn't seeing the software already on the system.

Make a installation without installing anything new.I mean insert Installation CD 1 in CDROM and start install Mandrake without formating root directory or choosing packages.Just hit OK.It helps sometime

I appreciate your help but I would like to seek a more direct solution to why RPM isn't cataloging these dependencies correctly. I am also using slackware, so its a different install. I'll probably have to check out the docs on RPM more.
