What's a good webcamera software for vector linux?

I'm using VL 7.1 Light, and when I used gslapt to install claws-mail, it automatically added openldap-2.4.38 without removing the older package called openldap-client-2.4.31 as shown below:

Code: [Select]
~ $ slapt-get --list | grep -i ldap
openldap-2.4.38-i586-2vl71 [inst=yes]: lient: openldap-client (OpenLDAP client programs)
openldap-client-2.4.31-i586-2vl71 [inst=yes]: openldap-client (OpenLDAP client programs)

Do I need both?  Since these two packages have some files in common, I suspect that one will be "broken" if I manually remove the other one.  I hope that can be fixed by doing a re-install of the one I want to keep.  Can anyone confirm this before I get myself into trouble?

I'm also wondering if the following two packages are simply different versions of the same software:
Code: [Select]
~ $ slapt-get --list | grep -i javascript
js-1.8.0_rc1-i586-1vl71 [inst=yes]: js    (Mozilla's JavaScript Engine)
js185-1.0.0-i586-1vl71  [inst=no]:  js185 (SpiderMonkey - Mozilla's JavaScript Engine)

Again, I'd like to use gslapt to install the newer one, but I think doing so will NOT automatically remove the old one.  Should I remove js-1.8.0_rc1 manually BEFORE installing js185-1.0.0?

I'm guessing that unless the "Conficts With" tag is part of a software package, I could end up with two different versions of the same software installed together in the same directory.  Is that right?

Sorry that it took so long to get back to this.
Thanks, rbistolfi.  I also needed to enable the mod_session*.so (3 of them).
Unfortunately, PHP says it can't connect to the database - perhaps because of user name or password.  Where can I find the correct one for the database?

Its not a syntax error actually, this happens because the module you are trying to load has a dependency, it uses symbol defined in another module. Try adding this to your config:
Code: [Select]
LoadModule socache_shmcb_module modules/

Thank you all! Yes, I'll back up some directories to an external hard disk for reference.  Or maybe the whole installation- it's not huge. 3.7 GB at this point.  :-D  I'll try the Xarchiver- I noticed that in the Accessories menu.

Btw I'm really liking the little informational widgets in the system tray that are installed by default.  I can see what's going on with the system at a glance- nice!

Awesome!  Glad you worked it out.

As a suggestion, you may want to dump a copy of your /var/log/pkgtools somewhere.  It contains a log of what packages got installed.  This may help you in the future if you run into it.

That looks like a binary software distribution that was linked against older versions of libpng and zlib.  We ship newer versions of those libraries, so that renders your software unusable.  The 'solution' to this problem is nothing we can offer.  Downgrading the libraries will break other things in the system and leave you vulnerable to older security risks.  The only advise I can offer is to find an alternative office suite that works without expecting you to keep an older outdated system.
