trying to find which package has shared library


I know, or seem to recall, of a web site where you could enter a file/shared library you were after and it would spit out a list of packages containing that file.

Or was it all a dream??

Please tell I am right and better still let me know the url!!

And just in case I was in a dream I am currently after (for Slakcy 11)

Thanks for your time, BashTin.

The website you are thinking of is the package browser Although that will only list those that are part of a full slackware install.

if it is not in slackware either do a quick grep on your /var/log/packages/* (in case you do have it installed) or otherwise hit le google

its part of freerock gnome so your probably gonna have to install it to meet all the dependencies. I hate when packages depend on whether kde or gnome are installed.

As always very informative guys. Thanks.

However I must confess I gave up in the end. I was trying to compile Gnumeric but I soon realised it realises to heavily on Gnome and didn't really fancy installing a full blown Gnome just to get a spread sheet app.

Just continue to use OpenOffice, great app anyway.
