 Linux POPLOG package dependencies?

Does anyone know a complete list of RPM package dependencies
needed by POPLOG on IA32/Linux.

(It has come to our attention that SuSE does not install
libtermcap by default, which is needed.)

Anyone know of any other such dependencies where
we might run into trouble?

 Linux POPLOG package dependencies?
   Hi there,
            Going by my recent experience with Debian I would suggest
            the following, just in case:

   Something to do with motif ---  openmotif I think it is called on

   Then there is termcap, which should need libc5.

   Depending how small an installation you have you could need ldso as
   well for the ldconfig and ldd stuff but I would be suprised if you
   didn't already have it.

   I thought I saw some calls to cc flash by as well on one box i put it
   on but this was a very stripped down box and I am not sure about this
   now and have no time to check at the moment, sorry. You probably have
   gcc installed anyway.

   Go for it, I have found it very educational, and this from someone
   who has tried about every programming tutorial on the web.

                               All the best,
                                  John Duncan

I'm not sure where RPMs come in.  As far as I'm aware, there is no RPM
package for poplog at the moment.  If you have installed poplog from one
of the tar achives, you can use the command

ldd `which pop11`

to see what runtime libraries it will require in order to start up.
(Please excuse me if I'm telling you things you already know.)  On my
RedHat system that command gives

        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40015000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x4001d000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x401b5000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x401ff000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x4020b000) => /lib/ (0x402a8000) => /lib/ (0x402ac000) => /lib/ (0x402b0000) => /lib/ (0x402cd000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x403c2000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x403cc000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x403e1000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000)

You are ok as long as there is something to the right of the arrow on
each line,  If not, you need to get some version of the library listed
on the left.

If your problems just involve X windows libraries, you might be able to
run corepop11, which on my system uses

        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40015000) => /lib/ (0x4001d000) => /lib/ (0x40021000) => /lib/ (0x40025000) => /lib/ (0x40042000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000)

Then you could follow the instructions for rebuilding poplog to get a
full system.  (You need some sort of running poplog in order to carry
out the instructions.)

Failing that, you might be lucky with the reduced poplog at , which only
needs => /lib/ (0x4000e000) => /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/ (0x40011000)

because some things are statically linked.  However, is not
present on some newer RedHat systems.  I don't know about Mandrake.
