View Full Version : Dependency Error: Iseries Access for Linux

31st January 2007, 04:19 PM
When I try to install the iSeries Access for Linux RPM (iSeriesAccess-5.4.0-1.2.i386.rpm)

I receive the following dependency error.

"Unable to resolve dependencies for some packages."
Missing dependency: libXm.so.3 is needed by package iSeriesAccess

I know that the libXm.so.3 software has been replaced. Being the noob on the block how do I get around this?

libXm.so.3 used to be provided with openmotif [Pre FC6] . Openmotif was dropped due to licensing : http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc6/en_US/sn-PackageNotes.html#id2974182
And according to the release notes you should probably install the
lesstif rpms
and see if that helps you.
or perhaps check / search for a generic openmotif rpm etc.

Thanks for the post and the link. I installed lesstif but still have the same error. How do I tell the iSeries Access software to use lestif instead of the libXm.so.3 program?

I found an older fc src.rpm and rebuilt it for fc6
both the rpm and devel.rpm are in the same zip file along with a brief readme
You can grab it here if you wish.
You will first have to remove the lesstif rpm(s) that you installed

It may not be the prettiest, however, it should work for you

Thanks for going out of your way. I'm pressed for time today, but I'm anxious to try your solution.
I let you know how I make out.

I have same problem too, finally I forced the installation ignoring the missing dependencies as I found a motif package containing libXm.so.3 but I think not in the right position as iSeries rpm tells me he need dependency, is there a way to fin where an rpm is looking for a shared objhect dependency??
