 Post subject: Help installing software
PostPosted: Sat Aug 14, 2004 1:14 am 
Greetings
I am very much a newbie to Linux, so I'm sure that I am just not doing something correctly. I have recently installed blag and love the concept and feel. I do a lot of video work and would like to turn my PC into a linux video workstation. I therefore, want to install some additional software but am having trouble. For example, I downloaded the rpm to install qdvdauthor. When I ran the rpm it had a dependency for libMagick++.so.5 . So I downloaded an rpm containing it. When I ran that rpm it said I already had it installed. So now I'm really confused. I had similar things happen on a couple of other packages.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.[/b]

The best way to install new software on BLAG (or Fedora) is to get it from one of the repositories. They will make sure you have all dependencies. A few places to look:

http://dag.wieers.com/packages/
http://yarrow.freshrpms.net/
http://atrpms.net/
http://dries.studentenweb.org/apt
http://newrpms.sunsite.dk/

Check out the program synaptic. It will allow you to update your system and install things from any of the above repositories. Synaptic is a gui application in the menu. It uses apt-get, which is a command line program.
