When I try to install the 3..5 i586 rpm on Mandriva 2010 I get an error message about a missing library - libnet.so.0. Does anyone know how I can sort this out? Mandriva's install and remove software doesn't list either regina or libnet.so.0.

  • I had exactly the same problem regarding the missing library. AFAICT, Mandriva's libnet package is a subversion or two out of date. My solution was to hunt up a more current libnet rpm for a different distro and install it. I used this one, and it works (though i have no idea if I broke something else in the process...) ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/opensuse/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/suse/i586/libnet-1.1.2.1-141.2.i586.rpm
