Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm installing business Objects and one of it's dependent components is as per below.
I'm n Red Hat Enterprise 5.0 but my machine does not have a subscription yet (will be getting one later)
Linux: Your system is missing required components (STU00120):
Missing patch: glibc-2.5-18
I ran a rpm -qa and find I have glibc-2.5-12 already.
I can't find a download for glibc-2.5-18 on the net (or if I do it's of the wrong type - error msg is 'Can't install a different arch of 'tmp/glibc-2.5-18.fc6.i386.rpm')
Now, I have this rpm
which seems like a later version which is good, no? since I assume they're back compatible (shouldn't assume, I know)
when I try and run this
[o2mars@localhost ~]$ rpm -i glibc-2.5-24.el5_2.2.i386.rpm
warning: glibc-2.5-24.el5_2.2.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 37017186
error: Failed dependencies:
glibc-common = 2.5-24.el5_2.2 is needed by glibc-2.5-24.el5_2.2.i386
Hi Agrouf, thanks for the tip. We managed to get the RH subscription early so just doing an yum update now which should clear up that package and associated dependencies stuff.
This is for the live system that'll be going on customer site, so I'll see if that unixODBC thing I was onto you last week about is still an issue with this set up. Never got an answer as to whether unixODBC was needed for BOXI 3.0 and was still going off the R2 documentation.
