Gnome missing library file

Gnome missing library file

Post by Pierre Abba » Wed, 11 Nov 1998 04:00:00



I am trying to update the Gnome that came with Red Hat 5.1 to the
latest. I started by downloading gnome-core and Gnumeric. I gathered
them in one directory and did rpm -U *.rpm. It told me that some other
RPM was out of date, or even too new (the previous gimp required an old
rpm which I am replacing), so I kept downloading RPMs until those errors
went away. I am left with the following error:

        libgtktty.so.0 is needed by gnome-objc-0.20-1
        libgtktty.so.0 is needed by gnome-admin-0.20-1
        libgtktty.so.0 is needed by gnome-games-0.20-1
        libgtktty.so.0 is needed by gnome-utils-0.20-1

I have no clue where to find the missing file. What RPM is it in, or
where can I get it?

Please post and email.

First off, you *need* both versions of GTK+ (1.0.x and 1.1.x for Gimp
and GNOME to work correctly). Unlike Windows' DLHell, libraries in Linux
can coexist just fine with earlier versions of the same library. Use
"rpm -i" for the libraries you need two versions of (like GTK+, Ncurses,
etc.).

Secondly, the current GNOME version is 0.30, not 0.20.

Finally, you can easily find out which packages contain the libs you
need at [http://rufus.w3.org/linux/RPM/]. Simply drill down to the
packages you want to install, and it will give you a list of
dependencies the package you want has, which happen to be links to lists
of packages that supply the needed file(s).

Try sorting by name, that's the easiest way to find things there.
