    Where to find the listed dependencies


    So, I am new to slackware. I have installed 8.1 (not out of choice but because that is what my clients use and I need to test something). I also have installed 10.1. Both are running in VM.

    I am trying to install a LANDesk client. However, it has some dependencies.

    # rpm -i pds2-8.5-0.19.i386.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
    /bin/sh is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19
    libc.so.6 is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0) is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1) is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3) is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19
    libgcc_s.so.1 is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19
    libgcc_s.so.1(GLIBC_2.0) is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19
    libm.so.6 is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19
    libstdc++.so.5 is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19
    libstdc++.so.5(CXXABI_1.2) is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19
    xinetd is needed by pds2-8.5-0.19

    In Red Hat, Fedora, and others, I use apt-get and these install just fine. However, I am trying to search http://www.slackware.org/pb/ for these dependencies and I can't find them.

    I installed slapt-get and that didn't find them either.

    Anyone know how to get these installed?

    What are you doing with RPM on slackware? Why don't you just use slackware's native package management system?

    use as root
    Code:
    # rpm2tgz package_name.rpm
    # installpkg package_name.tgz
    it is soooo simple...

    Still it's kinda stupid as they make tgz packages for pretty much everything.

    Install only comes in RPM

    The install files only come in RPM.

    I will try to convert as posted.

    Converted but still missing files

    So I converted the files.

    They installed with pkgtool. However, now they files don't run because the dependencies aren't there.

    So I tried to seach the slackware packages page for libstdc++.so.5 and libexpat.so.0 and I can't find those files on my box, nor do I find them when search the slackware packages page.

    Somehow I need those files installed. That is also why I tried RPM because I found RPMs the contained those files.

    I just need the dependencies

    So the commercial application is only built as an RPM. That was converted easily.

    Now it give me the errors;

    /usr/LANDesk/ldms/ldiscan
    /usr/LANDesk/ldms/ldiscan: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
