SUSE9.3 - aria installation dependacyes problem

Hi *
I'm running SUSE 9.3 and trying to install aria - download manager (aria-1.0.0-fc3.1.i686.rpm), and dependacies are killing me.

There was some dependancies that I was able to solve, but some I can't.

First I installed libstdc++-mainline-4.0.1_20050518-1.1.i586.rpm as it contained some gcc libs required by aria.
Then came dependacy for open ssl. This one I ca't solve.

I wanted to install openssl package, apperently this comes with suse already. So, yast and I install the package.. But "" and "" are not included.

linux:/home/kfranic/Downloads/aria # rpm -i aria-1.0.0-fc3.1.i686.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by aria-1.0.0-fc3.1 is needed by aria-1.0.0-fc3.1

So I tried to link and to this files, but it fails again.
It is killing me why this fais?

How does rpm searches for references??? I tried to strace the install, but this two libs are never looked for? So I guess there is some db or list of installed packages?

I guess that
ln -s
ln -s
would work if the program is installed, but I can't get past rpm...

Any help appeshiated.
Btw, does anybody know why does YAST always installs openssl that comes with the SUSE (/media/SU930_001/suse/i586/openssl-0.9.7e-3.i586.rpm) rater the one I download?

Thanks & sry for the long post,

short answer

Sorry for short answer ...

dependencies problems are kind of good - if you were told them before you ruin your system

Instead of this graphically download manager you may try out of a console:
Switch to a folder you like the thing to get downloaded ...

cd /somewhere/foldername

if it interrupts you may try to continue

wget -c

man wget
info wget
wget --help
downloading a full website :

wget -rpkl 3


Is GPG the thing you searching?


It always installas what it knows - so if you downloaded it to somewhere you would need to
Add Installations source directory (in yast)
.. or just install it by simply clicking it ...

...or by going there (to the folder) as root - and
rpm --install NAME.rpm

[rememeber [TAB] is helpfull - so when you hit N[TAB] in the directory - it tries to get all names with N in beginning letter - easy copying of some text - mark with left mouse - hit middle mouse somewhere ]

Thanks for reply, this is helpful, nice links, but I switched now to Fedora Core, and this problems I had with Suse are no loger present with this distribution. I found that comunity for Fedora is much greater, and for n00b like me this is great, so Fedora it is.

Thanks once again.

I think I find SuSE easier

(but remember those things with wget - should work in any Linux )

You are welcome
