Description Need Real Name 2001-04-24 18:07:29 EDT
When I try to install "rpm -ihv ethereal-0.8.17-1.i386.rpm" fails an show
the following messages:

error: failed dependencies:
	libsnmp.so.0   is needed by ethereal-0.8.17-1

but I have the link "libsnmp.so.0 -> libsnmp-0.4.2.so" in "/usr/lib" and
this directory is in the  /etc/ld.so.conf

Thanks in advance,

Diedrich von Bernhardi

rpm manages packages, not files.

	rpm -q --whatprovides libsnmp.so.0
I predict that you will find that, indeed, no installed package has the
	Provides: libsnmp.so.0
You can work around by doing
	echo "Provides: libsnmp.so.0" >> /etc/rpmrc
but you really should install a ucd-snmp package with the libsnmp.so.0
provide (verify by doing
	rpm -qp --provides ucd-snmp-*
and examining the output).
