17 Nvu

Open a terminal and become root:


Nvu depends on xorg-x11-deprecated-libs which is a package that is not available for Fedora Core 6, so we use that package from the CentOS Linux distribution (which is related to Fedora). We download that package from one of the CentOS mirrors:

cd /home/falko/Desktop
rpm -ivh xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-1.EL.13.37.5.i386.rpm

Nvu also depends on libXp which is available for Fedora Core 6, so we can installl it like this:

yum -y install libXp

Then we download and install Nvu:

wget -c
rpm -ivh nvu-1.0-1.rhel4.fs.i386.rpm

If you get an error message like this:

[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -ivh nvu-1.0-1.rhel4.fs.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        xorg-x11-deprecated-libs is needed by nvu-1.0-1.rhel4.fs.i386

install xorg-x11-deprecated-libs again:

rpm -ivh xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-1.EL.13.37.5.i386.rpm

and then Nvu again:

rpm -ivh nvu-1.0-1.rhel4.fs.i386.rpm

Afterwards delete both RPM packages:

rm -f xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-1.EL.13.37.5.i386.rpm
rm -f nvu-1.0-1.rhel4.fs.i386.rpm

Nvu can now be found under Applications > Programming:
