Thread: Dependency hell

    Question Dependency hell

    Ok, just a general Linux question maybe but... how do I solve dependency errors / missing packages ?

    I'm trying to install a game launcher called OpenMW (open Morrowind - see openmw.org).
    There is a 1-click install available for Tumbleweed.
    When I try to install this it gives me "nothing provides libunshield.so.0" error even though all repo's are enabled through the 1-click install file itself.

    Is it just a package that's gone missing in the repo's or a problem with the way openmw was built or...?

    TIA

    Hi
    Tumbleweed and Leap are not (in most case, eg some noarch) compatible...

    I see from the project page it's currently blocked to build for Leap, so keep and eye here and when it finishes building you should be good to go;
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...package=openmw

    perhaps you need 32 bit version? also the Instllshield cab files may be proprietary. Or maybe no one has bothered porting

    Well some progress now it seems; I see the build results for Leap 64bit has status 'succeeded'.
    However I still can't find the openmw package in the games repo after refresh... I'll wait a bit longer I guess.

    Thanks.
