We can't do without jack, however I have no idea on what liblrdf and libraptor
are... AFAIK none of us is using them.

libraptor is an RDF metadata toolkit, and it's required by liblrdf, which is a
library used for maintaining metadata information (categorisation etc) about
Neither of these is required to _build_ Rosegarden, but the original poster is
apparently trying to install the PlanetCCRMA RPM of Rosegarden, which was
built with liblrdf support and therefore does require liblrdf.
Since this Rosegarden RPM came from PlanetCCRMA, the obvious way to fix the
dependencies is to follow the instructions in the PlanetCCRMA documentation,
which describe how to use apt-get to do automatic dependency resolution to
get the RPMs you need. They're all available from the same PlanetCCRMA site
(A tangent: when I installed RH9 a while ago, having been using mostly SuSE
for years with excursions into Debian and FreeBSD, I was genuinely surprised
that RedHat still thought it was OK to ship with a graphical package manager
that made absolutely no attempt to resolve unmet dependencies for you. "Oh
sorry, you need another package before you can install this one. No, I can't
help you find it. No, not even if it's on the CD that's already in the
drive. Go away." Is that still the case in FC2? What if you pay out
however much it is for Red Hat Enterprise -- do they still expect you to do
dependency resolution by hand? Does any other distro do that these days?
What about Mandrake?)

Probably not Mandrake. I haven't used it in awhile, but they have their own
alternative to apt-get called urpmi and a frontend for it called rpmdrake.
The biggest problem I had with urpmi and Mandrake in general was that some of
the chains of dependencies were just jaw droppingly absurd. As in this
That was a couple years ago too. It probably works better now. Mandrake
people speak of urpmi as though it can give apt a run for its money.
I'll still take Debian and aptitude over anything else though.
