    where to find


    i'm installing bluefish and i need help on dependencies.

    i can't seem to get the right rpms fpr aspell and aspell-en. i downloaded aspell 0.50++ and aspell-en 0.51++. when RPMed, one requires the other. ??? endless loop?

    i also need a site download for libpcre and libpcre3-dev.

    thanks!

    good download site is rpm.pbone.net

    to install multiple rpms type

    rpm -Uvh package1.rpm packag2.rpm etc etc

    If you get thoose dependencies you can specifie both rpm-packages to the same command like this

    Code:
    rpm -ivh <package1> <package2>
    Then the dependencies will be resolved.

    okay i ned to explain somethign here, the -U option will install rpm(s) if they do not exist on the system and will upgrade them to the new version if they already exist.

    the -i option is install only, and will return an error if an earlier version of the software is detected.

    not to be ungrateful for you replies, but don't you think i already know that hellmasker? i'm even using --force but the damned thing just won't install it.

    ibpcre3-dev, or similar, is nowhere to be found too. i've tried fresherpms.net, redhat downloads, rpm.pbone.net... not forgetting google and the 3 RH CDs... quick, gimme another site please! i keep getting libpcre when i search, and i need the dev package coz i'm compiling as an alternative. this RPM thing is stubborn. maybe i'll just uninstall and reinstall to a newer version of aspell, which i'm sure will still not work. aspell needs aspell-en and there goes the infinite loop.

    peace man!

    its kind of hard to know what people know (except dolda who seems to know almost everything), so i figure explain evrythign fully so any idiot could follow it and if u know what ur doing u will just ignore half of the picky details i write.

    yep, i would say Dolda knows everything! i wonder how many years have to pass by before i become like him. ehehehe... i've stopped using winbloze for like 5++ months already. except when i have to do something that really requires winbloze...

    ey Hellmasker, thanks nonetheless man!

    Linux rules! Linux is kewl!
