I've installed Centos not so long ago, installed it both with KDE and Gnome. Also installed NVidia drivers. So I have no idea which Linux Distro is good, but I like CentOS, sometimes embarrassed with this alt-f1-f8 switches when the system hangs, because my computer got only 1.5 GB memory, DDR1 xor 2 don't know exactly. So I've downloaded the DBDesigner tool for creating DB schemas and reverse engineering, and when I'm trying to install it the message comes:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: DBDesigner
       Requires: libXft.so.1
Error: Package: DBDesigner
       Requires: libborunwind.so.6.0
Error: DBDesigner
       Requires: libodbc.so.1

Can you tell me how to install the needed libraries??

The short of it - you can't.

It looks like this software is VERY old - Version 4 (from their website) talks about a 2.4 Kernel, and recommends Redhat 7.3 which is well over 10 years old - and appears to be designed for Windows (it libborunwind is/was found as part of a library for Borland Software), so I doubt you will get the software running just using the RPM.

Similarly, I tried downloading the ".tgz" file, and it is looking for libraries which are simply too old.

In that case, look around for some other package doing this. I'm sure at postgresql.org or the other RDBMS sites you'll find something. Or look at the *.edu sites for database courses, they'll probably suggest someting for use by the <strikeout>victi</strikeout>students. –  vonbrand Feb 13 '13 at 3:08
    
Oh, I'm not advanced in Google search, it always offers me mysql-workbench and I need this software because it can regallery (autolayout) all tables, and to export to my needed format. Maybe I should use wine version? Don't know, because don't want to loose these opportunity. Best regards –  Alexandr Kochubey Feb 13 '13 at 8:31
