Where to find needed Dependencies?


Hello,

I'm running mandrake 9.0

I just install the newest Gaim0.66 rpm from Mandrake Cooker site.

I have a two part question:


1> If I currently have the older version still installed do I need to remove this or can I do a : rpm -Uvh <new Gaim rpm> and upgrade the the old one to the newone all in the command above????


2> Where do I find needed files/dependencies when they're not located locally or on the distro cd's that came with MDK?

Here's the list:

error: failed dependencies:
perl-base = 2:5.8.1 is needed by gaim-0.66-2mdk
libgaim-remote0 = 0.66-2mdk is needed by gaim-0.66-2mdk
libaspell.so.15 is needed by gaim-0.66-2mdk
libaudio.so.2 is needed by gaim-0.66-2mdk
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3) is needed by gaim-0.66-2mdk
libgaim-remote.so.0 is needed by gaim-0.66-2mdk
libgtkspell.so.0 is needed by gaim-0.66-2mdk
libpspell.so.15 is needed by gaim-0.66-2mdk

Any help is much appreaciated

Thanks,

You can usually upgrade without a problem.

URPMI (have you tried that already?)

but mostly, the one, and only:

GOOGLE.

Thanks for the response.

You asked:
URPMI (have you tried that already?) NO

Is this from the command line.. Whats the biggest difference in your opinion?

Thanks,

urpmi automatically downloads and installs the program and its dependancies.

as root:

urpmi gaim


this should download/install the newest version and any dependancy it needs. Id use this any time your able. Unfortunatly, you cant install every program this way.


You may also consider upgrading to Mandrak 9.2 beta, its much better and has the latest packages. Its pretty stable as well.

Would urpmi include downloading cooker files if it didn't find the regular ones?

Thanks again,

You would have to specific which sites you want to use as resources. One possible site would be the cooker site at rpmfind.net (there are probably others).

You can specifiy various media (resources) for urpmi to look at such as websites, your cds of Mandrake, etc.

Kool,

The cooker link is exactly what I know that I need now.

I can't find a link that will actually allow me to download without becoming a member to Mandrake and paying them. This kinda of goes against the linux philosphy doesn't it.
If you know the link to the cooker download site that would be awesome.

Thanks,

you cant "just get a link", you have to become a member.

No, it doesnt go against the philosophy, bandwidth costs money and Mandrake is not doing to well financially.


If you want an even better version of URPMI, with free updates, look at many of the "meta" distributions out there. These are distributions that recieve upgrades though online downloads rather than CDs.

gentoo.org
debian.org
archlinux.org
conectiva.com

Theres more I probobly missed.

Just specific the following as a resource in the Mandrake packaging software:

rpmfind cooker

Should work, I think.

Ok,

I can put in the URL:

The url right now is:
ftp://ftp.math.utah.edu/pub/linux/Ma...dates/9.0/RPMS

Is the link that you sent preferable to this one above?

Below the URL that I specify is this:

Relative path to synthesis/hdlist:

Right now this is set to:

../base/hdlist.cz Whatt's this???

Thanks,

I think the .../base/hdlist.cz is ok. I'm not sure exactly what it means.

I'm not sure about your link. I couldn't log onto it and didn't want to mess with it. However it looks like it is just updates to the Mandrake rpms, whereas rpmfind is the "cutting edge" cooker rpms.

One last thing about urpmi, you can specify the --test option to see if everything will go OK before messing up your system.

Thanks again,

I believe that I'm going to upgrade like you suggested. Installing any piece of software that gets failed dependencies when trying to install is a total nightmare at this point.
