Hello All, this is my first post to LQ and I'm fairly new to CentOS.
Attempting to install CentOS-5 kept ejecting CD saying something like, no CD was found with CentOS install files. So I figured maybe if I installed an older version and upgraded I'd avoid the hardware issue. Since I've never done an upgrade with this distro in this way I used the upgrade "not recommended" on the CentOS.org website.
There were some version differneces between what was on the migration guid and the actual RPM index, but they were all minor so I figured that it was ok to use the later ones in the current index. found here:
When I got to the section to "Remove deps/outdated packages", running the rpm command:
rpm -e VFlib2 caching-nameserver autofs kudzu pcmcia-cs xorg-x11 newt-perl hal crypto-utils --nodeps
gave me this:
rpm: error while loading shared libraries: libnss3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Now anything using rpm give errors including yum and to top it off I'm remote and to go reinstall is not impossible but fairly difficult as I am a couple hours away.
I'm currently attempting to reinstall rpm and just discovered that there is no compiler installed (searched for cc and gcc).
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!
