What's the apt-get name for dvd+rw-tools package?


I would like to download this package via apt-get since I am getting unmet dependencies trying to install from rpm but I don't know what to call it, I tried 'apt-get install dvd+rw-tools'.

Alternatively what needs to be upgraded to meet these dependencies?

error: failed dependencies:
libgcc_s.so.1 is needed by dvd+rw-tools-5.13.4.7.4-1
libstdc++.so.5 is needed by dvd+rw-tools-5.13.4.7.4-1
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2) is needed by dvd+rw-tools-5.13.4.7.4-1
mkisofs >= 2.0 is needed by dvd+rw-tools-5.13.4.7.4-1

thanks a lot

hmmmm.....you are using SuSE right? then how can you use apt-get....apt-get is a debian based packagin system...so either you are ignorant or i am....if it is the latter please let me know how to use apt-get in SuSE 'cause i would love to use it.
well according to this...i would say that you need to upgrade your gcc version....you GLIBCPP version and your mkisofs version.
go to http://rpmseek.org and see if you can find RPM's for either of these packages.
You can also use YAst and search there if you know the package name.
I would reccomend Yast as it will solve all your dependency issues.
hope this helped.

Apt-get works for many systems including Suse and Redhat. I use the GUI front end called Synaptic which I think is the best thing since sliced bread was invented.

Sorry, I don't know the name of the dvd file though.

Synaptic seems to be a package for DEbian. How do i use it for SuSE.
also i could net get around installing apt4rpm. didnt really try too hard. It is required for Synaptic.

Type apt-get install synaptic.

You need to install mkisofs as well.

yeah I think someone ported apt-get to rpm based systems or something like that, there's a site with a really good Suse sources.list somewhere, can't recall where just google it for awhile. apt-get is sooo much easier than rpm dependency hell, I hate to use anything else to install now. Tried urpmi in Mandrake but it never seems to find the packages I'm trying to install.

Anyway, I used apt-get to upgrade mkisofs and it's still indicating it's needed. And I'll work on the other dependency later when I'm at home.

So does anyone actually know the name of dvd+rw-tools.rpm on apt-get then?

cheers
