lib errors
 
Hi People

I am using RHL 7.3 on an i686 machine.

I have been facing errors while installing few files... say latest version of xpdf for example !!!

For example, they look like the following....
**
error: failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3) is needed by xpdf-2.01-11.1
libgcc_s.so.1 is needed by xpdf-2.01-11.1
libgcc_s.so.1(GCC_3.0) is needed by xpdf-2.01-11.1
libstdc++.so.5 is needed by xpdf-2.01-11.1
libstdc++.so.5(CXXABI_1.2) is needed by xpdf-2.01-11.1
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2) is needed by xpdf-2.01-11.1
**

Such errors occur sometime for other file installations too.... but similar stuff...

I guess that these library files need to be part of my comp... I have something called openmotif ... But then when I tried to get something called lesstif---.rpm, coz I found that it provides some lib files that are not currently present in my system, I get a message saying

error: failed dependencies:
lesstif <= 0.92.32-6 conflicts with openmotif-2.2.2-5

So obviously I cant have both I guess...

Please bear with me.... mez not familiar with these things... cud someone please help me with adv on what to do next ???

TIA

you just need to make those conditions happy. for example, go get a newer verion of lesstif, 0.92.32 or greater and upgrade to it. please look at the stiky thread in the top of Linux - General for rpm installation help

Thanks for ur reply.

I got lesstif-0.93.18-2.i386.rpm and installed it...

But still I get the same message ... as in my first post... Same error message..

Though, I saw this

$ locate libc.so.6
/usr/lib/debug/libc.so.6
/lib/i686/libc.so.6
/lib/libc.so.6
$

So this means that this library is present but there is some other problem right ???

And also still the other lib's like libt1.so.1 are not there... :(
