Spice problems


I am trying to install spice on my MDK 9.1 system. I have the source RPM and the regular RPM but they both give me the dependency error of libreadline.so.3 is needed. Well, this is part of readline, which is installed on my system. What do I need to do in order to get this spice RPM to recognize that the dependency is fulfilled? I can't compile from source because it takes way too much time and effort to make all of the configurations.

Force it,

rpm -Uvh --force --no-deps foo.rpm

That overrides the RPM checking, so if stuff breaks don't say you weren't warned

it tells me --no-deps is an unknown option.
