Checking for Dependencies


I noticed alot of programs have dependencies for libraries and stuff but I don't know how to check if I have the libraries or programs neccasary. Is there a program or any trick to do this?

Running Slack 10.2 btw.

Usually the package will document the required libraries. You can grep for these in the output of `ldconfig -v` or the contents of /var/log/packages.

You can check individual runtime dependencies with ldd utility (man ldd).
There is also a more generic tool called slackdeptrack. Search for it on freshmeat.net f.E.

Or a really blunt tool method.

Install the program you want, run it from the command line, read the complaint error message and then install the program that is required.

Works for me.
