Can't upgrade to Mozilla 1.3


I am meeting some roadblocks in trying to install Mozilla 1.3 rpm's on top of Mozilla 1.0.1 on RedHat 7.3. Dependencies keep getting in the way and --force seems to be no help (I've never had to use --force before). I have a full set of Mozilla rpm's ready to go... but no joy.

Here's a typical session:

[root@localhost Current]# ls -l moz*
-rw------- 1 root root 11239437 Mar 22 16:45 mozilla-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
-rw------- 1 root root 151192 Mar 22 16:43 mozilla-chat-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
-rw------- 1 root root 3175738 Mar 22 16:44 mozilla-devel-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
-rw------- 1 root root 241844 Mar 22 17:12 mozilla-dom-inspector-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
-rw------- 1 root root 239667 Mar 22 17:12 mozilla-js-debugger-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
-rw------- 1 root root 124696 Mar 22 17:11 mozilla-nspr-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
-rw------- 1 root root 172352 Mar 22 17:11 mozilla-nspr-devel-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
-rw------- 1 root root 402495 Mar 22 17:12 mozilla-psm-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
[root@localhost Current]# rpm -Uvh mozilla-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
mozilla-nspr = 1.3-0_rh7 is needed by mozilla-1.3-0_rh7
[root@localhost Current]# rpm -Uvh mozilla-nspr-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
mozilla-nspr = 1.0.1-2.7.3 is needed by mozilla-1.0.1-2.7.3
[root@localhost Current]# rpm --force -Uvh mozilla-nspr-1.3-0_rh7.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
mozilla-nspr = 1.0.1-2.7.3 is needed by mozilla-1.0.1-2.7.3
[root@localhost Current]# rpm -e mozilla
error: removing these packages would break dependencies:

libgtksuperwin.so is needed by nautilus-mozilla-1.0.6-16.ximian.16

libxpcom.so is needed by nautilus-mozilla-1.0.6-16.ximian.16
libxpcom.so is needed by galeon-1.2.6-1.ximian.1

How should I proceed?

For the record (in case someone else needs this later) it's "--nodeps" (without the middle hypen) but why quibble. . .

You got me far enough to find the correct spelling on the man page and all is well.

Thanks.

Using the --nodeps switch is okay when you un-install but it can get you into some trouble when installing packages. In your case I'd suggest going into the directory where you downloaded all your mozilla rpms and doing:

rpm -Uvh mozilla*

so that it installs all the mozilla packages at once.

RPM with a wildcard. Excellent. I didn't know you could do that.

I *did* think several times that it would all work of I could get RPM to just hold its breath and do everything all at once.

Thanks. Too late to do that this time, but I'll remember...

Personally I just get the CVS version. They are always of top quality IMHO. To compile it I use the following options

./configure --with-x --with-system-jpeg --with-system-zlib --with-system-mng --with-system-png --disable-mailnews --enable-crypto --disable-accessibility --disable-tests --disable-debug --enable-optimize=-O3 --disable-logging --enable-reorder --enable-strip --enable-elf-dynstr-gc --enable-cpp-rtti --disable-jsd --disable-dtd-debug --enable-extensions="all" --prefix=/usr/local/MozCVS

Granted the CVS directory does eat through 1.5 or so gigs of HD space IMHO it is worth it
