rpm doesnt recognise the existance of file


I am trying to install my printer driver from the manufacturer website. I find the rpm requires libpng.so.2 . But my system has only libpng.so.3 . So i created a symbolic link named libpng.so.2 to libpng.so.3 . Then ran ldconfig . Now when i try to install the rpm it still asks for libpng.so.2 . How do i make rpm recognize the existence of libpng.so.2 in /usr/lib . I am using fedora core 5.

By installing the correct lib, try; yum install libpng10

Delete your failed symbolic link named libpng.so.2 first.

or you could try installing the libpng10-1.0.18-3.2.1.i386.rpm (for example) from the installation media.
