how to install rpm above 6.1 in AIX


I am getting following errors while installing the gcc.

AIX-rpm >= 6.1.0.0 is needed by gcc-4.4.5-1

How to install rpm which has version greater then 6.1 in AIX?
Please help me solve this

ThanQ,
Nagendra

Try running "updtvpkg"

There is an "rpm" package downloadable from the AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications, but I don't think that's the same thing

What version of AIX are you at? At a guess it looks like you are trying to install a version of gcc intended for AIX 6.1 (or at least requiring RPM for AIX 6.1) and you are at a lower level..

If you are on AIX 5.3 you should try install a version compiled for that oslevel.

Also, http://www.perzl.org/aix/index.php is a great resource for RPM on AIX.
