Installing an xorg-x11 RPM


Hi:
I'm running Fedora (FC3 with 2.6.9-1 kernel) and am trying to execute GUI java stuff which were require 2 RPMs with deprecated libraries not part of the "typical" FC installation. The JVM native libraries were compiled against libXp.so.6, which has been deprecated recently by the Xorg folks. This causes Java to break when trying to run GUI programs, since the library is no longer there.
The 2 RPMs are:
xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.1-12.i386.rpm (Disk 2)
xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-devel-6.8.1-12.i386.rpm (Disk 3)
The 1st RPM installed fine with:
Code:
rpm -ivh xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.1-12.i386.rpm
and when I do rpm -pa I see:
Code:
xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.1-12
So I am assuming it was installed successfully. When I try
Code:
rpm -ivh xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-devel-6.8.1-12.i386.rpm
I get:
Code:
error: Failed dependencies:
        xorg-x11-devel = 6.8.1-12 is needed by 
xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-devel-6.8.1-12.i386
Any idea why the installation is insisting I need a package that seems to already be there?
- Rolf.

If the package names are different to any extent, then they are not the same package. You need to get the devel package (without the word deprecated in the name).
