Redhat EL5 causing dependencies problems


Hi All,

I have just installed Redhat server and i`m stuck in the apache installation (mysql and php is already installed) I have tried so mamy times to install it (rpm -ivh apache2-2.0.47-1.7.2.i386.rpm) but gives me dependecy errors regarding some libraries

error: Failed dependencies:
libcrypto.so.2 is needed by apache2-2.0.47-1.7.2.i386
libdb-3.2.so is needed by apache2-2.0.47-1.7.2.i386
libssl.so.2 is needed by apache2-2.0.47-1.7.2.i386

I have downloaded these ones and trying to install one by one gives me the same dependency error which requires another package to be used by them. It seems like it may go recursively with no end.

Is there any way to install properly the package because it is so tiring to do all these stuff (apt-get is sot nice to install and remove, you dont have to care for dependencies)

Thanks
Elthox

Ok, that is a way. But I`m talking generally too. If Im going to need any package in the future and I face the same recursive problems...what the solution can be?

well with a valid rhel subscription you would just install via yum since rhel5 (yum install apache) and that'll cover everything. Here you appear to ahve found a very old package from 2003 for Falsehope linux, which i've never heard of, adn as such is very likely to cause these conflicts, as it's not meant to be used on rhel5. stick to official packages, or at least highly compatible packages such as those for centos5
