i’ve tried (whistling and assuming a innocent expression) to install onto my FC4 the 1.2.1 FC5 rpm and this is what I got:
error: Failed dependencies:
libcrypto.so.6 is needed by panda3d-1.2.1-1.i386
libssl.so.6 is needed by panda3d-1.2.1-1.i386
I know that i can chisel it quieting those messages but I’m just curious:
- why Panda needs those libraries?
- Is it safe to ignore those dependancies???
These libraries are part of OpenSSL, which Panda uses to handle some optional features, such as encryption. It is possible to build a version of Panda that does not depend on OpenSSL (and does not provide these optional features), but the version that is pre-built and available on this site has this dependency compiled in.
Last time I tried to install FC4, it didn’t install correctly. I’ll try it again. If I can get it to install, I’ll release an FC4 RPM.
me too but I’ve managed it - try to tellme what issue you are experiencing so maybe I could be of one help
I uploaded a fedora core 4 RPM this morning. I haven’t tested it, let me know if it works.
the installation process has gone smooth like silk
* a note to everybody passing from 1.1.0 to 1.2.1: remember to rpm --erase the 1.1.0 before install the new one!
by the way, testing the samples I’ve found a little bug in
Traceback (most recent call last):

Happy to see that the old bugs in various tutorials though have been all wipped off!
keep it up the great work!!!
