Often when installing 3-d party software in RHEL/CentOS or other yum capable Linux OS there is a message of missing libraries or packages.

How to fix it?

Here is the trick.

You can use yum package manager to search for missing pieces.

yum whatprovides <package name/library>

This command will search all configured repositories for package that provides it.
Another option is to search Internet.

TIP: For better stability install only packages in official repositories. OR ones that clearly specify that they work on your OS/version.
