Unhappy HOW-TO Upgrade Evolution


I am running a modified version of Redhat 9.0 and want to upgrade Evolution 1.2.2

The modifications that were made to RH9 prevent RedCarpet from recognising my OS as a supported system. As such, I have downloaded evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1.i386.rpm and am in the throws of attempting to install it.

It seems I am missing the following:

ORBit2 >= 2.7.5 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1
gnome-spell >= 1.0.2 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1
libbonobo > 2.2.0-1 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1
libgal-2.0.so.5 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1
libgal-a11y-2.0.so.5 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1
libgal2 >= 2:1.99.10 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1
libgtkhtml-3.0.so.2 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1
libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1
libsoup >= 1.99.26 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1
libsoup-2.0.so.0 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1

I downloaded ORBit2 and tried to install it as per the instructions contained therein but got a dependent file message that said I required glib2.0 In turn, I tried to install this but to no avail.

Can someone please suggest an easier way to go about upgrading Evolution?!?

Alternatively, I can take each file needed by evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1 and relay each problem I get trying to install the dependent files!?!

Help!

try using apt-get or yum. also, the site where you have d/ld your evolution rpm should have the dependencies or link to where you can get them.

apt-get is ported into many distributions - including red hat and slackware.

and for yum:

apt-get

As I cannot find a RH9.0 specific rpm, I've downloaded apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr0.rh80.1.i386.rpm but get the following error message upon trying to install it:

warning: apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr0.rh80.1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b
error: Failed dependencies:
libelf.so.0 is needed by apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr0.rh80.1
librpm-4.1.so is needed by apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr0.rh80.1
librpmdb-4.1.so is needed by apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr0.rh80.1
librpmio-4.1.so is needed by apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr0.rh80.1

When I downloaded libelf-0.8.2-2.src.rpm I got:

warning: libelf-0.8.2-2.src.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e

What does it all mean!?! Any Ideas What to Try Next!?!

All this means is that you don't have the key to verify the integrity of the download on your machine. You can ignore it if you wish, I have and had no probs so far

Did it just stop there, or did it install or spit out more dependency warnings?

Edit
Try this package, it's for RH9

Angry Hoorah!

1. It stopped there - no more warnings!?! Would appreciate knowing how to force install anyways but...

2. Thx for the link - I tried it earlier and again just now (without the http:// at the beginning - I must be braindead today!). Hoorah! I've managed to install apt-get and am in the process of getting synaptic sorted out...

How do I go on to upgrade evolution from here?

Many Many Thanks!

Not having used apt-get before, I would suggest that you read the APT HOWTO. But after you update the installed packages database, and configured sources, then you would run
Code:
apt-get install evolution
I guess.

u need to add a repository in your apt source list. check out this one:

http://people.ecsc.co.uk/~matt/repository.html#apt

it's apt site has evolution 1.5-2 and 1.4-5. refer to your apt manual (or follow the steps from the above link) to add additional repositories.

hth.

Exclamation concern over dependencies

I have downloaded the evolution-1.4.5 rpm but cannot install it due to a number of missing dependent files. I have since downloaded those dependencies only to find that they require a total of 145MB of further dependent files!?!

I am using a regular snail's pace connection and I am particularly concerned not to mess with glibc as I have come across a number of warnings about the effect attempting to upgrade glibc can have!?!

Anyone got any advice for me on this?

Thanks
