Upgrading CURL using RPM on RH9


Hi, I have a RH9 setup that I am using to teach myself Linux (slow old process) and I would like to upgrade the currently installed version of CURL from 7.9 to 7.12 so that I can install Icecast.

I have downloaded the relevent RPM but need some help after that. I know the problem I am having is due to my lack of knowledge with RPM so if anyone could help me out I would appreciate it.

I try to upgrade by entering:
Code:
rpm -Uvh curl-7.12.2-1.i386.rpm
RPM then tells me that I have the following failed dependencies:
Code:
libcurl3 is needed by curl-7.12.2-1
libcrypto.so.2 is needed by curl-7.12.2-1
libcurl.so.3 is needed by curl-7.12.2-1
libssl.so.2 is needed by curl-7.12.2-1
libcurl.20.2 is needed by (installed) php-4.2.2-17.2
So do I need to install all of these at the same time? How do I check which ones are already installed?

Any help greatly appreciated.
Ben.

You need to install those dependencies first and then install curl.

Welcome to dependency hell !

Thank the lord for apt-get, yum, portage etc.....

Why not using Apt or Yum?
They're just fronts, using the same RPM tools as you normally do.

Here is where I show my complete ignorance.... I presume Apt and Yum are automations for RPM? How hard are they to install / use?

Very easy...

First install Apt:
#rpm -Uvh http://dag.wieers.com/packages/apt/a...9.dag.i386.rpm

Next we'll update it's package list:
(as root)
#apt-get update

Since most of your packages will be out-dated, upgrade them with one command:
#apt-get upgrade (this should also update curl)

Also try it's very nice GUI:
#apt-get install synaptic

Start synaptic from your menu or type synaptic in a console.
Synaptic is by far the easiest way to update and install new software.

Groovy!

I couldn't install the devel version as it needed the regular one so I installed that instead. It is merrily updating as we speak.... that is so cool!

I dont want to get the GUI as I am only going to have SSH access to my webserver when I make it live.

Thanks for your help, it's been invaluable.

I tried:
Code:
apt-get install curl-7.12.2-1.i386
and
Code:
apt-get install curl
The first tells me it cant find the package and the second tells me that it is already the newest version...

Any ideas?
