Software dependencies is if a software needs another software in order to be run, installed or built. To reduce complexity of software that you need to installed, software is grouped into packages like firefox, thunderbird and the like. Dependencies will typically hit you in the following cases:

  • when running a program, a file/package is missing
  • when installing a program, a file/package is missing
  • when compiling a program, file/package is missing

This page lists dependency problems and solutions to them. Note that your individual problem may require a different solution, however, this is a starting point.

libQt

Problem, in this case by umtsmon:

./umtsmon: error while loading shared libraries: libqt-mt.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Solution, in this case for SUSE 11.3:

yast -i qt3-32bit

libQtDBus

Problem, in this case from skype:

skype: error while loading shared libraries: libQtDBus.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Reason: You do not have the 32bit libraries for Qt.

Solution, in this case for SUSE 11.3
yast -i libqt4-32bit

libQtGui

Problem, in this case from skype:

skype: error while loading shared libraries: libQtGui.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Reason: You do not have the 32bit libraries for Qt.

Solution:

yast -i libqt4-x11-32bit
