Dependencies problem installing midnight commander

I am having a hard time trying to install midnight commander
(mc-4.6.0-2.i386.rpm), actually my only dependency left is ....

Making some googling I found that the slang-1.2.2-1.i386.rpm
is the one I should need to install. However a more recent version
"package slang-1.4.5-16" is already installed.

So I decided to install forcing --nodeps
however it didnīt work fine and now I get this error everytime I run "mc"

mc: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Can somebody help me? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Try installing the "compat-slang" package.
