Thanks. That got me a long ways. However, when I try to install xffm
and xffm-icons, I get the following dependency:
[root at gstpc rpms]# rpm -Uvh xffm*.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
dbh >= 1.0 is needed by xffm-4.0.5-1
libdbh-1.0.so.1 is needed by xffm-4.0.5-1
I haven't tried to find out what I need yet - any hint would be helpful.
The complete set of rpms I installed (or tried) is:
[root at gstpc xfce]# ls
I found the libxfce* rpms on CD3.
