[newb] Software install question..Plz hlp!

Please excuse my newbiness but I need to figure this out....

I use Mandrake 9.2 and have rpm'ed scigraphica (graphing software). This requires a number of dependencies that I have installed (python, scientific python, GTk+ extras, etc). The problem is that all the dependancies installed in \usr\local\bin and usr\local\lib while the scigraphica installed to \usr\bin. So when I fire up scigraphica, it won't work right because it does not see all the dependancies...

How do I fix this and how come they did not intall in the same places???

The rpm system will keep track of this on it's own, regardless of where the separate files are installed.
I can't say though why it doesn't work in your case.

Where the depencie programs installed as rpm's as well?
