install older package using rpm


I had upgraded from Samba to Samba 3x awhile ago. Which I found out that I didn't need to do because I have to update now 9 large patch releases which I have to install in order. Starting with the first one and I'm having Samba dependencies problems now. The patch releases to install are older than what's currently installed. Hopefully, once I get the conflicts resolved the rest should fall in line.

The packages trying to install are,

Samba-3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1.x86_64.rpm
Samba-client-3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1.x86_64.rpm
Samba-common-3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1.x86_64.rpm

What I'm getting is after running the install script,

Samba conflicts with Samba3x-common-3.3.8-0.51.el5.x86_64
Samba-client conflicts with Samba3x-common-3.3.8-0.51.el5.x86_64
Samba-common < 0:3.1 conflicts with Samba3x-common-3.3.8-0.51.el5.x86_64
Samba-common < 0:3.1 conflicts with Samba3x-winbind-3.3.8-0.51.el5.x86_64

Please help.

You can install them with no dependencies.

--nodeps
-- Don't do a dependency check before installing or upgrading a package.

rpm --nodeps package-to-install

Should that work even if I want to install an older package over a more recent one?

I tried doing it with --oldpackage but I might not have had the syntax correct. I wasn't sure where --oldpackage went in the command.

If you are going to try it this way did you try this:

rpm -Uv --oldpackage package_name

Have you tried to remove the newest samba package?

rpm -e software_name

I did try to remove the newest Samba packages using the commands you mentioned. I was able to remove samba and samba-client but couldnt' remove samba-common and samba-winbind because of dependencies. I also tried updating using the --oldpackage but was running into the dependencies issue again.

After pulling my hair out what I finally did was go through the add/remove software-package manager and remove samba-common and samba-winbind that way. It removed them and took care of the dependency problem.

I think it was easier for me to just blow away samba and just start from scratch.

I ran the patch releases I was originaly trying to accomplish, the samba problems are gone except for a new one which is file /usr/lib64/libsmbclient.so.0 from install of samba-common-3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1.x86_64 conflicts with libsmbclient-3.0.33-3.28.el5.x86_64 (which is now installed).
So I think here what I need to do here is go back to an earlier version of libsmbclient package?

Also issue with xulrunner (Mozilla?)
File /usr/bin/xulrunner from install of xulrunner-1.9.0.16-2.el5_4.x86_64 conflicts with file from package xulrunner-1.9.0.16-2.el5_4..i386
File /usr/bin/xulrunner from install of xulrunner-1.9.0.16-2.el5_4.i386 conflicts with file from package xulrunner-1.9.0.16-2.el5_4.x86_64

Anyway, thanks for your input. If you have any ideas that be helpful.
