geeqie and dependecies
I'm new to puppy linux and I'm a bit confusing using ppm trying to install some packages.
I'm trying to install geeqie on lucid puppy but I'm having some problems.
1) I can't find geeqie in puppy repo, I need to configure ppm to use ubuntu repo to find it. But...
2) When I try to install geeqie_1.0~beta2-9 the installation fails because of broken link. The strange thing is that if I test link the result is OK! Every single packages found using examine dependecies fails to download.
3) I try to update the repo list (configure ppm --> update database) and ppm update only 1 repo that is always archive.ubuntu.com also if I selected other repo (like puppy-5-official and so on).
I googled a bit and found a geeqie pet (geeqie-1.0-i486-3.pet) and tried to install it. The installation works but geeqie doesn't because:
geeqie: error while loading shared libraries: libpng14.so.14: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I tried some work around found in some forums, but I can't reach my goal
Anyone can help?
The main problems are 2 then:
1) How to install geeqie
2) How to update correctly ppm so it doesn't say me broken link anymore
Just found an hint... I've edited the DISTRO_COMPAT_REPOS file and replaced archive.ubuntu with old-releases.ubuntu in all the urls of the ubuntu repo. I saved the file and updated db... it's updating all the repos now, could be that if just a link is broken it doesn't update also the following... weird.
Anyway, the update is finished, but geeqie can't install as before... it seems to look for the file always at archive.ubuntu.com... I don't know what to do
