.so.# files


When installing packages on my system, whether from source or RPMs, sometimes I come across depedency failures. I'm sure everyone does on a regular basis... So, I download the package I need and install it, and it normally works out just fine.

Sometimes, however, I come across a package that needs more than one dependency, and it's when the dependencies are the same package. The first one on the list is the actual package that I need, and the second one is a file with the same name as the package that I need with an extention on it.

The extention is normally one of the following:

packagename-version.so.0
packagename-version.so.1
packagename-version.so.2

So, I install the package, but this dependency is never met, and therefore I cannot install the package that I wanted to install in the first place.

I'm wondering how I can get these dependencies met so that I can install the software I want.

You may also need to link packagename-version.so.X to packagename-version.so (if it is asking for packagename-version.so)
