Says Failed dependency even when installed.

I have mandrake 9.1 installed on a P-IV. I downloaded and tried to install ppp 2.4.1 but got Failed Dependencies in the form of missing files and

I found the 'realname ' files that is and to which these file names are sym linked on a SuSE 9.0 LiveEval CD and copied them on my Mandrake partition. Thereafter I ran the ldconfig command as described on the tldp HOWTO for shared libraries.

But my Failed dependency messages persist.

I even downloaded an entire libpcap package(it was for redhat though since i could only find .src.rpms for mandrake) which installed another version of libpcap that is, but I still got the messages for

What can I do to solve my problem please?

I had similar problems (seems mandrake vs a compile is an ongoing war) the only fix i had was find a rpm and do urpmi on it

there are a few things you can try:
  • symlink the new file to the correct file name
  • add /usr/local/lib to the /etc/ file and run ldconfig in which case you may still need to symlink it
  • make sure there arent any old copys of that .so laying around that would muck things up
