View Full Version : missing dependency when trying to install jitsi on SLED11SP4

17-Feb-2016, 23:20
hello people!
i want to try an open-source audio/video conferencing application and i want to install this one, since it offers straight encryption in your communication.

downloaded from here ( https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/rpm/ ), and selected the file ---> jitsi-2.8-5426.i686.rpm
after going to terminal as root and issuing: rpm -Uvh *.rpm, i get the following dependency error message:

sled11sp4:/home/omar/linux-install/jitsi # rpm -Uvh *.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1 is needed by jitsi-2.8-5426.i686

i tried searching on the internet to solve the issue and the closest topic is this one but i cannot understand what they did or what you have to do as a user:

Can you give me a hint in how to install this application?
thanks a lot!
