Unhappy libc.so.6 dependency questions


i'm newbi running red hat 9 and I'm trying to upgrade my cpp package from cpp-3.2.2-5 to cpp-3.3.3-7. when I run the command to upgrade i get the following:

# rpm -Uvh --test cpp-3.3.3-7.x86_64.rpm
warning: cpp-3.3.3-7.x86_64.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies:
libc.so.6()(64bit) is needed by cpp-3.3.3-7
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit) is needed by cpp-3.3.3-7
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3)(64bit) is needed by cpp-3.3.3-7

Now, i was curious about libc.so.6 so I did a find on my system and when I did I got this:

# find . -name libc.so* -print
./usr/lib/libc.so
./lib/i686/libc.so.6
./lib/tls/libc.so.6
./lib/libc.so.6

which leads me to my question, could it be possible that those are the files it needs, but somehow the upgrade can't see them? and could the way to fix my dependencies be as simple as upgrading my glibc package? any help would be much appreciated. thanks

The package you're trying to install is for 64bit machines, is that what you have?

Hi,
I tried to rpm
-ivh pvfs-1.6.0-1.i386.rpm
and got this error
error: failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3) is needed by pvfs-1.6.0-1

So that mean I need to find libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3), install it and I'll be ok?

And does anyone knows where to find it?

Hi,
We r still waiting solution for this problem.

Really I loved LiNux and I hope to use it only in my home and work but I faced a lot of problem such this. So my migrate steps to LiNux stop there.,

Thanks,

Amdawi,
