Cannot install a package from RPMDrake


Hey there,
I'm trying to install Beryl so I can get a 3d desktop () but for some reason when I go into the Software Management tool (rpmdrake) and select the Beryl core package I get the following error:

Sorry, the following package(s) can't be selected:

beryl-core-0.1.2-4mdv2007.0.i586 (due to unsatisfied emerald)

What does it mean "(due to unsatisfied emerald)" ?

Thanks a lot in advance ^^

Try this site:

www.rpmfind.net

I did a quick search for emerald and it gave me what looked like the correct result. This site been a very useful search engine for me and helped me find a lot of files I needed. It's normally the first place I look when rpmdrake doesn't have what I wanted.

You should also make sure you have the ftp media sources (main, contrib, and main_updates) set up in your Software Management tool, and make sure you have updated them. Another thing you may wish to do is to add plf media sources ( plf free, and plf non-free) for those packages which are not GPL licensed. The ftp mirrors contain all the packages included in the Mandriva Linux distribution, while the CD set, the DVD, or especially the Mandriva One installation options may not be so complete due to storage space limitations.

HTH,

Ok thanks a lot, everything is installed.

Seems like we get out of one issue and fall right into another:

Now that beryl is installed and using AIGLX, it is quite laggy. I've searched around a while and the biggest response is that if you use GNOME rather than KDE you will reduce a lot of lag. I tried this and I saw an improvement but one of my cpu's were running at a full 100%! I turned off most of the plugins so the only things I had were the 3d desktop cube and and place. Unfortunatley this did not help because it takes a long time to load up a program and firefox is really laggy!

My specs are: ATI radeon 9550, Pentium D 2.66gHz and 786mb ram.

I did install the ATI proprietary driver from RPMdrake, but if anyone could tell me how to go about configuring X11 so that it does use the proprietary driver and what not I think my pc would be able to better handle Beryl+AIGLX!

Thanks alot again everyone ^^

The X11 program uses a file called xorg.conf or XF86.config to define which video driver is used, both these files should be found at:

/etc/X11/

Inside this file there is a section called 'device'. There are several relevant things here, but the most important one right now is the driver which X11 is told to use.

It may still be pointing to a generic driver that came with your linux distribution, which could explain your problems. You'll have to check the documentation that came with the ATI drivers to find out what is supposed to be here.

Also, because modules like glx are configured here, there may also be other lines in this file that need to be edited or inserted.

I should mention that nothing bad will come from editing this file, but it is important to make a backup and be confident that you can use the command prompt to restore the backup if needed, otherwise if you have an error X11 won't start.
