rpm problem - unsatisfied libXinerama.so.1


I have several different rpms that I've downloaded (mainly filelight-0.6.4-3mdk.i586.rpm) and I can't get them to install. It says:

Some package requested cannot be installed.
filelight-0.6.4-3mdk.i586.rpm (due to unsatisfied libXinerama.so.1)
do you agree ?
Ok Cancel


I can't figure out where to get this libXinerama file. Isn't the rpm system supposed to satisfy these dependencies automatically? am I doing something wrong?

thanks,
-dbc

You can get the file here.

Unfortunately, rpm can only automate the install. It assumes that you have already satisfied the dependencies beforehand.

There are a few programs which will get the dependencies: apt4rpm and preinstalled in Mandrake is URPMI. Type in 'man urpmi' to find out about it.

medium "contrib" uses an invalid list file:
mirror is probably not up-to-date, trying to use alternate method

update your source. I haven't had to really learn the urpmi commands and switches as gurpmi does a great job with a point-and-click (and everything else I install with tarballs anyways).

Isn't the command urpmi.update ? man urpmi will tell you

hmmm...

Well I ended up installing Filelight from source, I gave up on the rpm and all the depencencies that it has. Compiling filelight was really easy though...
