Users are impatient

Follow-up to Play with Suse Linux from Oracle/Java/Others

I tried to install oracle htmldb on my suse linux box. The pre-install check told that I should install compat-db-4.0.14 firstly. I download the rpm and the check passed and the installtion process began.
The post-install configure reported it cannot found libdo.so.2. I dug arround and cannot find appropirate rpm for suse.

I become impatient since i only want to do a quick test this product. I went back to Solaris platform and install same product on this platform and it works straight away.

It is shame that some many different variance of linux there. It is fun to learn linux, but for a quick test, you better choose a platform distrubute by a sole vendor, like microsoft and solaris.

  1. The difficulty of finding RPMs seems to be the main problem with maintaining Red Hat systems and maybe SuSE too by the sound of it. It's much easier with Debian which maintains a database of all packages and all the files inside them which you can search on the web. All the dependency relationships are maintained too so all related packages can automatically be fetched and installed for you.
