urgetn help required regarding rpm installation error


Helo,
I have already installed my own build rpm packages and they are

ENGLISH-4.1.0.0.39.i386.rpm
ENGLISH-4.1.0.0.22.i386.rpm
ENGLISH-4.1.0.1.22.i386.rpm

I m using following command to install same rpm package with different version.

rpm -iv --replacefiles rpmname

now I build another English language rpm ENGLISH-4.1.0.0.23.i386.rpm

when I installed using this rpm using on the top of the above rpm packages,

rpm -iv --replacefiles ENGLISH-4.1.0.0.23.i386.rpm

its give me following errors

package _ENGLISH-4.1.0.1.22-1 (which is newer than ENGLISH-4.1.0.0.23-1) is already installed

why it give me such errors even though 4.1.0.0.23 version is greater than

4.1.0.1.22


Regards,
Amit

Hi there,

How about if you try to force the rpm installation. That way, newer or not, the rpm will get installed. Try the following:
Code:
rpm -Uhv --force my-rpm-file-to-be-installed.rpm
You can also replace the U option with i. I just prefer the Update option to the install one.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Helo thx for replying me in quickly.
But my problem is if I used

rpm -Uhv --force my-rpm-file-to-be-installed.rpm

then my earlier rpm packages are removed.
I dont want to remove my earlier packages.

kindly appreciate urgent help

Regards,
Amit

Hi there,

Did you try changing the name of the package installed. If you have a package called "/usr/bin/english", then change the one you want to install to "/usr/bin/english-different".

I don't know if that helps you in any way possible.

Cheers

helo thx again for yr quickly reply.

No I cant change name of already installed rpm.

because its impack a lot. my customer requirement is that if he uninstall
latest rpm then he should be able to get previous latest rpm.

so there is no way to overcome this problem?

Regards,
Amit

I am afraid but burschik is 100% right
You just downgraded from 4.1.0.1.22 to 4.1.0.0.23
The devil is in the details, look closely...
