SuSe 9.1 Package confliction


Alrighty.

My trouble is this - YasT, the fancy installer for SuSe, is being an ass. I'm attempting to compile a number of packages, many of which need GTK. For GTK, you need GLib2, Pango, and ATK. However, the versions that the YasT installer installed are not high enough, and cannot be upgraded to a high enough level. So, I removed GLib2 from YasT, compiled a more recent version myself, and that part worked. Then, the GTK compile stopped at Pango (Not a high enough version!). But, when I used YasT to uninstall Pango to do the same manual compile, it decides that a required dependancy is to reinstall a low version of GLib! I cannot override this decision, and therefore it screws me up again.

So, I guess my question is ... how do I manually update these packages if YasT won't do it for me? I have the sources and everything, except even when I do a straight ./configure, make, make install, it doesn't count as the default one. Meaning, the GTK compile still sees the lower version installed by YasT.

Any help is MUCH appreciated, as I am at a dead end here.

So confused...

If you're sure you know what you're doing
use
rpm
from a command-line.

man rpm for details, rpm -e is the command you're
after, --nodeps most likely what it will take.


Cheers,
Tink

While I know enough about this, I still am quite new, so the rpm -e is giving me troubles. Should I be running it from a certain directory? What kind of file is it looking for? I'm not sure where the Pango (lower version) is installed, so I'm not sure how I should go about this. Thanks for the help though, any additional information would be great.

And yes, I read the man, but it didn't give a lot of information as to what exactly it needed, just a number of attributes that I could possibly use.

rpm -ql | grep -i <package> should return the
proper name that you have to use with the
rpm -e

You would think that that detailed description would make sense. However, apparently, I don't understand it! The <package> part confuses me, because I'm not sure what I'm looking for. Simple ideas, such as pango, pango-1.0, etc etc, don't give anything. I have the newer 1.4.1 just waiting to go on, but it won't until I remove the older version.

What file extension should i use with the rpm query? I don't think I have a .rpm for the version installed by YaST, it just... installed it.

Code:
rpm -qa | grep -i pango
if that doesn't return anything it's not installed.
