lftp dependencies RH9, package manage?


ok, SOO, i have a virtual server running Redhat9... i know i know, disgustingly old. BUT it is whats available, so i must deal with it...

anyway, i need to install lftp (or at least SOME kind of directory mirror ftp client) on this RH9 machine, but i am not familiar with package management of this era. from what i can tell, its all done by hand. compiling from source doesnt work because i dont have a c++ compiler, and the rpm -i of the custom redhat9 binary RPM gives me:

error: Failed dependencies:
libgcrypt.so.11 is needed by lftp-3.2.1-24.rh9.at
libgnutls.so.11 is needed by lftp-3.2.1-24.rh9.at
libgnutls.so.11(GNUTLS_REL_1_0_9) is needed by lftp-3.2.1-24.rh9.at
libgpg-error.so.0 is needed by lftp-3.2.1-24.rh9.at


so, that means i have to go hunt all of these down, in the correct version BY HAND? is there no other option?

i actually already tried installing some but i gave up because its too difficult and i am obtuse. thanks for the tips.

So you think two years ago is ancient history? The "era" hasn't exactly changed yet.

Fortunately, figuring out which packages contain those libraries isn't (usually) rocket science. For example, libgpg-error.so should be in libgpg-error-*.rpm and libgnutls.so in gnutls-*.rpm etc. If in doubt, use Google/pbone.net/rpmfind.net or something. I bet the person who made that lftp package also provides the other necessary packages.

If you don't fancy downloading and installing by hand, install (and configure) APT or YUM.

Regards
Simon
