Unhappy Problem when installing an rpm file


Hello,

I have downloaded the current rpm file for apache but when I go to run it it gives me the following error:


[root@luckyclay source]# rpm -ivh httpd-2.0.47-4.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libapr-0.so.0 is needed by httpd-2.0.47-4
libaprutil-0.so.0 is needed by httpd-2.0.47-4
libdb-4.1.so is needed by httpd-2.0.47-4

What does this error message mean? and how would I go about correcting it? Do I need to download something else?

Thanks for the help!

You need to install the dependencies. According to http://www.rpmseek.com/index.html?hl=com, these libapr.* are the "Apache Portable Runtime shared libraries" and libdb.* is the "Berkeley database".

you need to do more reading, google will help,

Dependencies are other files/packages that are required by the package that you are installing. most distro's have tools that will resolve and install the dependencies such as Mandrakes urpmi and rpmdrake, urpmi is command line and rpmdrake is gui based. they will download and install packages in one step.

to help with dependencies later on, you might wanna try apt-get or synaptic. Do a search on these forums for more info about either
