    Probably libXdamage or damageproto. More likely the first

    Quick google leads me to: http://www.pclinuxos.com/apt/pclinux...s2007.i586.rpm so its in your repository (or should be)

    libXft2 do ya?

    As an aside, part of what makes a good linux distro for me, is how good the package manager is. Any package manager that requires me to search the internet for dependencies gets dropped pretty quick - that's what the package manager is supposed to do, not me. It would be like updating windows but having to go to 15 different sites plus having a Ph.D-Google
    Just one of the reasons PCLinux didn't get a look-in (IMHO)

    I beg to differ a bit here as it is more ignorance on my part rather than a problem with the PCLOS packet manager.

    How can user ignorance be a factor in this? PCLinuxOS uses Synaptic, a gui for apt-get.

    If I were to use Debian (right now I don't have it installed but will test this theory later) and the CLI, I'm guessing to get conky installed, I would just need to do this:
    # apt-get update
    # apt-get install conky
    # conky
    and voila, it should (in theory) work.

    Why doesn't it work that way with PCLinuxOS?

    In my wisdom to keep things lean and mean I did not install a lot of the things on offer.
    While fathoming out dependancies I kept to that policy.I have never had a dependancy problem before with anything from any of my depositories.
