Unhappy Installation Failed


Hi All..

Today I was trying to install Gaim (gaim-1.5.0-0rh9.i386.rpm) on my notebook which is having CentOS 4.2 installed. When I run the RPM installtion I got the failed dependencies error..

Quote:
[root@ksnb]# rpm -ivh gaim-1.5.0-0rh9.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libpspell-modules.so.1 is needed by gaim-1.5.0-0rh9.i386
libpspell.so.4 is needed by gaim-1.5.0-0rh9.i386
Then I downloded the RPM (pspell-0.12.2-16.1.i386.rpm) and tried installing this, but then there was another error..

Quote:
[root@ksnb]# rpm -ivh pspell-0.12.2-16.1.i386.rpm
warning: pspell-0.12.2-16.1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 025e513b
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
file /usr/bin/pspell-config from install of pspell-0.12.2-16.1 conflicts with file from package aspell-0.50.5-3.fc3
So now I am stuck what to do as aspell is already installed there and I can not remove this as it required by lots of other applications..

Quote:
[root@ksnb]# rpm -qa | grep spell
aspell-en-0.51-11
aspell-0.50.5-3.fc3
gtkspell-2.0.7-2
openoffice.org-spellcheck-2.0.0-3
gnome-spell-1.0.5-9
[root@ksnb]# rpm -e aspell
error: Failed dependencies:

libaspell.so.15 is needed by (installed) gedit-2.8.1-4.i386
libpspell.so.15 is needed by (installed) php-4.3.9-3.8.i386
aspell >= 0.50 is needed by (installed) aspell-en-0.51-11.i386
So now how to proceed ?. Any suggestions..

Ok, I have seen were your problem is. You are trying to install a Redhat 9 rpm on a newer distro and this may not work right. I installed CentOS 4.2 yesterday and it has a version of gaim that works fine, so why don't you use that. If you still want the latest version, download the source rpm and build it for your system.
