Help Installing RPM RH9


Hi
Im rater new to all this linux stuff so please be patient :-)

I have installed RH9 as im soooo bored with windows etc and need to learn how to use a new toy.

ok so ive downloaded limewire in an rpm but when i go to install it i am told that "libXss.so.1" is required but is not present on my system. After spending several hours (not really sure what im looking for) searching around google etc i still have no solution to my problem.

So my questions are thus.

What is libXss.s0.1?
Where can i get it?
And how do i make it work once i have got it??

Any help is greately appreciated!


Regards
Matt

Unhappy missing "libXss.so.1" as well

I'm running Linux redhat 9, and am trying to install LimeWireLinux.rpm I've sucsessfully installed the java runtime enviorment (required by LimeWireLinux.rpm) and now "its" telling me libXss.so.1 is needed as well, I thought simple enough find "libXss.so.1 " download the rpm run "rpm -ivh LimeWireLinux.rpm" in the terminal and peer 2 peer here we come. WRONG! when I did a search for "libXss.so.1 " I found 10,000 diffrent flavors of the file(s) what exzactly is "libXss.so.1 " and how do I know which ONE is for me? how do I find it? I am bound and determined to master my distro (kinda a noob). Any energy/thought in this matter is GREATLY apriciated! Thank you

hi there

the library you are looking for is a part of the X server package
xorg-x11-libs

now this is not a part of standard package of redhat 9.0
so either upgrade ur X server package
or try another distro like fedora core 2

I am amazed that a lot of people are still downloading/installing Redhat 9. I guess they don't know that the newest versions of Redhat are Fedora and Redhat Enterprise Linux.

yes
but the problwem is of hardware
fc2 requirements are higher than rh9.0

also redhat 8.0 support has been stopped at fedoralegacy.com
redhat 9.0 is next on the list

then it will be difficult to download the packages also

regards

The RPM was built on a fc3 machine, so it implicitly decided it needs x.org. installing it with --nodeps should be fine, there's nothing in limewire that needs the latest X libraries.

Thx! --nodeps did the trick.

LimeWire install issues as well

Greetings Rettich and others,

Can you help me out and confirm for me the correct way to type the command that uses --nodeps? I am using redhat 9.0 as well.

I typed:

[oharris@47 oharris]$ rpm --nodeps LimeWireLinux.rpm

and then I get this crap:

RPM version 4.2

What am I doing wrong? Is this what is suppose to happen after I type in rpm --nodeps LimeWireLinux.rpm? I'm new to Linux as well. Please help!
