gprs easy connect depencies


I want to use gprs via samsung v200 infrared. So, i try to install the gprs easy connect. But the depencies are quite confusing me. My kernel is 2.6.8.1-3.

Glib-1.081 (minimal: 1.05)
Gtk2-1.081 (minimal: 1.05)

My system using:

Glib 1.2.10-2
GLib2 2.4.2-1
GLibc 2.3.3-3
Gtk+ 1.2.10-2
Gtk2 2.4.7-1

I'm confused because the gtk2 which mention in gprs easy connect web is 1.081. Also they mention both glib and gtk2 must have same version.

they also mentioned this:

Gtk2-TrayIcon-0.03
Gnome2-VFS-1.021

My system using:

Gnome-vfs 2.6.1.1-1
Gnome-icon-theme 1.3.3-1

I just confused which the names, are those files are same with the one in my system, also i'm totally blur with the gtk file names. Hope anyone could explain to me in short. Thanks alot.

You could try just ignoring the deps for this app, since all your libraries are newer than the requirement anyway. If it doesn't work, then maybe you'll have to downgrade...gnome-icon-theme and gtk2-trayicon are different packages, it appears you don't have it? Google turned up packages called perl-Gtk2-Trayicon, i couldn't find just gtk2-trayicon (and it appears to be a perl thing anyway) so you might want to try installing that if you don't already have it.

Those "files" that are required are actually sets of files, they're libraries that contain the functions your program (gprs easy connect)uses. The libaries are continuously developed, hence the different versions. Generally, newer versions of the libraries are backward-compatible, so there shouldn't be too much of an issue. But again, changes of the major version number (1.x -> 2.x) usually means significant changes in the code, so you might encounter problems (or then again you may not, i'm not familiar with the gtk development, i'm saying this based on experience with other projects). Best way to find out would be to just try and install the program without taking care of dependencies.
