Question xawtv-3.91-0 rpm wants - I have it

Hi all,

I was trying to install xawtv 3.91-0 in Red Hat WS 3. When I install the rpm it says: error: Failed dependencies: is needed by xawtv-3.91-0

But I have it. Actually I have links to the nvidia 5336 version with the name in my /usr/lib directory, my /usr/lib/tls directory, and I just added a link to my usr/X11R6/lib - but it still won't install.

I grep'd for libGL but it only appears in the rpm file unless I'm doing something wrong. Didn't see anything in the docs.

I am guessing there should either be a header or another link somewhere.

Anyone know? xawtv worked great under RH 9 but apparently isn't part of the RH WS distro and it's not wanting to be added.

Any help appreciated....

You can also try installing the src.rpm for the file to get file to install/register. Make sure it is the src.rpm version that contains the file before installing it. I did this with a file I needed to have because the file was an older version than the one I had installed already and it worked for me.

I'll give the source file a try and see how that does. I'd like to have TV ability under Linux since that's what I run under most of the time now.

Thanks for the info!
