PPM shows these unsolved dependencies: http://imgur.com/wS2CR6L
Will this cause any trouble? Do I need to do something to sort it out?

Hi Roger- when you install stuff it has to be with their dependencies.

As long as things work, don't sweat the details. PPM's not perfect..

I've checked all the dependencies every time I've installed something.

Choose a pkg >> examine dependencies >> dwnld and install selected pkgs. This is how it's done on Pup.

Like Semme wrote, if the program in question seems to work just fine and does everything you're expecting of it, don't worry if PPM reports there are dependencies missing. Sometimes, package creators will place those dependencies in different places, and run the program with a script telling the program where to find those components, or so forth. PPM will complain because it only checks the standard locations like /usr/lib/ (as far as I know), so it won't find the dependencies in situations like that.


...in other words, don't worry about it, if it's working. Very Happy

That's the way I do it, but there are unsolved dependencies.

Thank you for explaining it to me.
