Then you can go one step further and ask what libraries/headers/man
pages etc. each installed rpm contains and where they've been put:

rpm -ql openssl-0.9.6c-2.3mdk

Are they the ones which fail Openldap dependancies? Where are they being
put by rpm? Can you symlink libraries in one directory to ones in
another directory that are then found? For me, the licrypto that I've
compiled gets installed in /usr/local/lib. But sometimes things want the
new libraries in /usr/lib, so I just mv the old one to oldone.old and
symlink the /usr/local/lib ones to /usr/lib ones. You can sometimes get
around this by manually editing /etc/ld.so.conf and running ldconfig
afterwards, even substuting a script to call a renamed executable where
the script gives the location of the libs in the variable
LD_LIBRARY_PATH - but symlinking almost always gives the best results.

This is *not* libpcap! You'll have to install it, as I said.

Only one of them, and you don't yet know that that one has the lib that
it's looking for :-(

Exactly. But ask the rpms what they want, first (-ql).

Try Ethereal (www.ethereal.com). They've got Cooker binaries for you, or
it's a cinch to compile (or maybe you haven't got other dependancies for
it yet) and will teach you a lot. But you'll need libpcap first :-> And
the libcryptos in the right place :->>

The usefulness of RTFM is vastly overrated.
