Thanks for your response.
I'm running FC-3 with kernel-2.6.11
(I have tried the latest Fedora update kernel, but that does not affect matters.)
The only explanation I can see for this problem is that yum is not just looking for this particular library, it is looking for a specific rpm containing the library.
But if that is so, why does yum not tell me?
I find yum generally an extremely useful application; but when it does not work it is very difficult to correct. Assuming I am right in my conclusion above, I would like yum to give me much more information than just "Missing dep".
As the rpm's cannot 'see' the libs run "ldconf" to check your link library.
