RPM installation problems (lives)


I am having trouble installing LIVES. I am trying to install the RPM. Everytime I try to install I get an error message reading: -
"The following packages haven't been found on the medium, liveslives".
I have tryed to install various different release versions of lives but to no avail. I've tryed to install Kbirthday aswell, only to receive a similar message.

I am running Suse 10.0 64bit AMD

How exactly did you install?

I'd suggest a
Code:
yast -i <program.1.2.3.rpm>
from console...

I was trying to install by just clicking on the rpm file and selecting 'install with yast'. However I have just tryed to install in Konsol by loging in as root and typing, "rpm -ivh <filename>" Which seems to work well. I have now only got to find some dependancies which seem to be quite hard to find: -
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.4) is needed by lives-0.9.6-2
libexpat.so.1 is needed by lives-0.9.6-2
libslang.so.2 is needed by lives-0.9.6-2

I've tryed rpmfind so far. Have you got any ideas?
Thanks for any help.

You can do it that way. YAST, though, calls some necessary routines to keep your SuSE nice and stable. At least issue as root from console
Code:
SuSEConfig
ldconfig
Make sure you observe the upper and lower cases...

An alternative route would be to remove the already installed program with the rpm command and let do YAST its thing as proposed in my first post (YAST calls all these config programs with the right parameters...).

glibc is on your installation disk (development package). Install it from there (via YAST again) and search from Yast for the rest. Else it's http://www.google.com/linux for you .

I had the same problem with that libexpat.so.1 trying to install the ATI driver (once more) in Mandriva 2006. I found it installing freevo (I don't know what the hell is this, something like a media center, but it has the libexpat.so.1). Maybe you can install it and it helps you. But my problem is that the package of the driver don't find the file. I have a libexpat.so.0 in /usr/lib and the libexpat.so.1 is in /usr/local/freevo/runtime/dll.
