This is really a generic howto question:
I'm trying to install a package using rpm --rebuild (per the
instructions that came with it). It wants a particular library I don't
have. I did a locate and found a different (older) version of the
library. I tried loading older versions of the package, but it skipped
versions to an older library than I have.
My generic questions:
1) When something needs a version of a library I don't have, how do I
tell what else uses that library so I can assess the impact of upgrading?
2) How do I find out what that library does?
3) How do I find the library on the net?
The specifics in this case are - I'm trying to install download manager
d4x-2.03-1.src.rpm, d4x-2.5.0rc2-1.src.rpm, or d4x-2.4.1-1.src.rpm
It wants various versions of GLIB -( 2.2.0 is the newest it wants).
urpmi tells me:
The following packages contain GLIB: glibc libglib1.2 libglib2.0_0-devel
libglibwww1-devel libglib1.2-devel glibc-doc libglibwww1 glibc-debug
glibc-devel glibc-static-devel libglib2.0_0 glibc_lsb glib-gettextize
so I guess I have 2.0_0.
