[Solved] Dependency issue with libfreetype.so.6

Postby brxue » Wed Jun 22, 2011 1:32 pm


I'm installing OO3.3 to my redhat x86_64 machine, it failed with the following info.:

error: Failed dependencies: libfreetype.so.6()(64bit) is needed by ooobasis3.3-core04-3.3.0-9567.x86_64
libgnomevfs-2.so.0()(64bit) is needed by ooobasis3.3-gnome-integration-3.3.0-9567.x86_64
libgconf-2.so.4()(64bit) is needed by ooobasis3.3-gnome-integration-3.3.0-9567.x86_64

but those 3 libraries can surely be found within my system.




Can anyoen please help on this issue?

My system info is as follows:
"Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-238.el5 #1 SMP Sun Dec 19 14:22:44 EST 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux"
"Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.6 (Tikanga)"

The problems seem disappeared when I install RPMs directly under RPM directory using the following command:

rpm -ivh *.rpm
cd desktop-integrations
rpm install one of desktop integration which fits your system.

It seems the GUI installation method using "setup" script will have this prolem.

Thanks for the follow-up. Indeed, the script has been reported to be defective in some cases (several topics here).
You should have told us that you were installing with it, the reply would have been immediate!
