    Pidgin Install error: Failed dependencies


    Hi,

    I am also getting the same error.
    I am trying to install the libpurple rpm, which is the dependency for pidgin.
    When I enter the below command,

    rpm -ivh libpurple-2.7.2-0.el5.i386.rpm

    I am getting as

    error: Failed dependencies:
    libnssutil3.so is needed by libpurple-2.7.2-0.el5.i386

    I have googled a lot for the nss-util rpm for RHEL5(I am having RHEL5 on my system),but no luck.
    Can anybody please help me to get the nss-util rpm package for RHEL5.
    Or please provide me the pointers from where I can get that.
    Please help.
    Thanks in advance.

    i think that lib is included in nss-utils:
    RPM resource libnssutil3.so

    try installing the rpm with yum --localinstall first though as it should attempt to resolve dependencies.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Assuming you have the proper repositories enabled for yum, then yum will happily install any dependencies found as well. The rpm tool isn't quite so cooperative.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
