    Could you try to install it from source? Maybe that will work.

    Good luck

    Try to include more information about what you have done to install it, what distro you use is also usefull.. clearly you dont use gentoo as it would automaticaly handle the dependencys for you!

    Thanx for your response

    I use Suse Personal Edition. It dont have 'Make' or 'gcc'. So i am unable to compile it from source. Is it necessary to install Make and Gcc. Where can I get Make?

    in your case it would be easyer to resolve the dependancy issues useing RPM this is commonly known as "dependancy hell" a common problem with RPM based distros.. as an alternative you could check out gentoo which deals with all dependancy issues flawlessly.
