Help installing mm on RH9


Hi there,

As part of my project, I need to install a daemon that requires mm http://www.ossp.org/pkg/lib/mm/

I have downloaded the file: mm-1.3.0-20030307.src.rpm

I wonder if somebody can tell me how I can install it?

It says that it is source, and so do I need to do anything to it, or is it just a case of typing:

rpm -ivh mm-1.3.0-20030307.src.rpm

in an XTerm?

Thanks for your help :-)

Hi there,

I tried that, and I got this output:

well it says that openpkg is needed to install that mm stuff you are trying to put on... and its version has to be >= (greaterthan or equalto) 20020206 ...
