    When I reinstalled RH9 it asked me if I wanted it to automatically resovle depencies. I said yes and in just this past week its fixed some issues.

    I know I would have a tough time trying to figure them out, so I decided to use the tool that RH 9 for dependancy issues. Its work for me so far.

    apt-get solves all dependency problems for you, this URL seems to attempt to explain everything: http://apt-rpm.tuxfamily.org/

    It is one of the best package managers out. I love Debian it runs fast and has apt

    Gentoo's portage system is great, as well (if you don't mind compiling everything ). But I'm sure that apt-get is about the same for precompiled packages.

    /me runs off to read about it to see.
