Fedora Core 1 Kernel Rebuilding


Hello all,

I am having trouble installing RPM's on my machine and I am wondering if my Kernel needs to be rebuilt or re installed "if there is such a thing".

When I try to install an rmp the following error is what I get:

root# rpm -U autofs*
warning: autofs-4.1.0-8.rhfc1.at.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b
error: Failed dependencies:[root@WTN12080 download]
atrpms >= 18 is needed by autofs-4.1.0-8.rhfc1.at

Can anyone help me either understand isntalling rpm's or if somone can tell me if I need to have my kernel reinstalled and if so how can I do that?

Thanks,

L

no you dont need a new kernel or to rebuild your kernel (though at some point its a good thing to learn how to do) it looks like you need atrpms v. 18 or higher, at least thats what i think the output is telling you...ive only ever installed two rpms...

well no you wouldn't have to recompile your kernel, as what your seeing has nothing to do with that....
the error says that it needs (dependant) the atrpms package before it can install autofs..

you can find it here

How can you tell what dependencies it needs it seems a bit cryptic to me. Also I didn't see anything called dependant on that list of utilities... I have been looking at it for about the last 20 min trying to figure out what I needed.

I just tried to install a version of atrpms which is what I am assuming I needed and I got the following error:

warning: atrpms-41-1.rhfc1.at.noarch.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b
Segmentation fault

Is this something to do with the validation key?

highlighted in red above is how you see what are dependancies, cause it says failed dependancies and then it saysatrpms >=18 is needed by the package you are trying to install...

maybe there is something wrong with that package, just grab another and see if you can install it .... there is like 6 or so different packages there, and they are all above version 40, and in the dependancy error, it says >= (greater than or equal to) version 18 so you can use any of them..

Grrrrr Now that I found one it tells me that I need a specific directory

error: Failed dependencies:
/etc/apt is needed by atrpms-40-1.rhfc1.at
/etc/apt/apt.conf is needed by atrpms-40-1.rhfc1.at

It doesn't tell me where to find them.. My assumption is that this is another bad rpm that can't create these directories or something.

Well all I had to do was read on more information on where to find the apt and the yum rpms which is in the config package rpm... Now that that is installed I get the same error again when installing a lower version of atrpms so I am going to try another one

I installed atrpms-41-1.rhfc1.at.src.rpm and it gave me a warning but it seemed to install fine.
(warning: atrpms-40-1.rhfc1.at.src.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b)

I then installed autofs-4.1.0-8.rhfc1.at.i386.rpm it gives me the same error again that it needs a dependant from atrpm >=18

Does anyone know of anything else I can do about this or another means of automounting a smb file system?

Basically I have a netapp server I want to auto mount the shares on. What is the file that I need to edit or is there an rpm I can install besides this one that does not seem to be functioning. I am not going to be able to do file manipulation through ftp forever .

Help is appreciated.

Thanks
