RPM dependency help (apt 4 rpm)
 
I am trying to install apt in order to run apt 4 rpm. I got apt-0.5.4cnc9-1cl.i386.rpm and attempted to install it using rpm -i rpmname. It tells me it has to unresolved dependencies. librpm .so. and libpopt.so. I download and install librpm. Fixes that dependency.

I try and download libpopt.so and cant find it. I download popt.so (should work right?) and try to install it. Except my suse 9 already has a newer version of popt. So I cannot install. Fine I retry the rpm -i and I get

'libpopt.so.0 is needed by apt-0.5.4cnc9-1cl'

What can I do? Does libpopt exist elsewhere or is the rpm just not finding my already installed libpopt?

Thanks in advance for your help.

apt install problem
 
hi, I was just wondering if there was any resolution to your problem installing apt. I am having the exact same situation. I've installed popt and popt-devel. I even tried symbolic links into /lib. I think I have the latest vesion of apt-libs

if you are having trouble installing apt due to the libpopt.so.0 dependency (especially Suse) the solution is probably to get the popt-patch. I had popt and popt-devel both installed and was still getting the error. Here's where I found it:

i use suse 9.0 personal...i went to
http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/

and downloaded
apt-0.5.15cnc6-rb5.i586.rpm,
apt-libs-0.5.15cnc6-rb5.i586.rpm and
lua-5.0.2-rb1.i586.rpm

they installed and work perfect...
maybe it's the apt-libs package that has the libraries you are missing?
