Talking software install


The package that are installed in LInux, usually have dependancy with other packages. So how do I install a package with dependencies. Do I install the ones that the package depend on first or the package I want to insatll first?

Why is there dependencies with other packages? Why not the package be installed without dependencies?

There are some packages called as static packages, that don't have any dependencies. Just search for them first if you repeatedly fall into the dependency hell, and I think you will be satisfied.
