Subject RPM funkiness
Date Mon, 17 Dec 2001 21:21:43 GMT
My day with RPM is going much like Kyle's day with mod_rewrite. Lots of
head banging and not much progress.

I've got a RedHat 6.2 box, and I am trying to upgrade my SSH to v2.

I needed these:

[root]rpm -i openssl-0.9.6-9.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:   is needed by openssl-0.9.6b-1

Ok, so I need to install glibc - sigh. Download these:

Only to discover I cannot install those because I have an earlier
version of RPM. Awwwww, bite me, went and got this:

And according to this page:

I needed to upgrade db1 to db3, sigh, ok so I got
db3-3.1.17-4.6x.i386.rpm and installed than and then ran:
rpm --rebuilddb

No problems so far.

[root]rpm -Fvh rpm-4.0.2-6x.i386.rpm    (from the above mentioned URL)
It printed out a bunch of ################# and reported nothing else,
so i thought it worked.

[root]rpm -V rpm-4.0.2-6x.i386.rpm
package rpm-4.0.2-6x.i386.rpm is not installed

hmmmmm, ok, let's try this:
[root]rpm -i rpm-4.0.2-6x.i386.rpm
package rpm-4.0.2-6x is already installed


It's not installed, & I can't install it, but /var/run/rpm/ is showing
that 4.02 is in fact installed, as 'Packages' is used by 4.02 and
'packages' is used by 3.x versions.


Obviously I broke something, but I'm at a loss as to how to fix it.
