It's on the first RH installation CD. Look for the package file:

XFree86-Mesa-libGLU-4.2.0-72.i386.rpm

Hope this helps,

Rick

Ok I can't install the package off the cd now because :


[root@localhost /]# rpm -e XFree86-Mesa-libGLU-4.2.0
error: Failed dependencies:
libGLU.so.1 is needed by (installed) qt-3.0.5-17
libGLU.so.1 is needed by (installed) XFree86-tools-4.2.0-72
libGLU.so.1 is needed by (installed) xscreensaver-4.05-6
libGLU.so.1 is needed by (installed) wine-cvs-opengl-021903-1
libGLU.so.1 is needed by (installed) kdeartwork-screensavers-3.0.3-3
[root@localhost /]#

Any ideas on how to install it anyway.. or is that impossible... bah!

Well...you could, I suppose, remove each of those packages (after noting the rpm file that they came from), remove the libGLU package, do your install and layer things back on using the rpm files that each of the packages that depended in the libGLU package. Of course, you could that you can't remove one or more of those packages as something else depends on it (them). Then you'd have to remember those packages, etc. And you could have quite a few packages that you'd be manipulating by hand.

You could try to force the removal but that sounds like it'd be pretty risky. Anyone else tried to force rpm to do this? And survive?

But this all sounds a bit wierd: rpm thinks it's installed yet your original post said that Mesa couldn't find libGLU? It sure looks as though Mesa was already installed. At least part of it was installed. I feel like I missed the beginning of this movie. :-) Could you fill us all in?

I think i was going through some walkthrough for installing nvidia drivers and it told me to delete something with GL in it.. it must have been this. What a bummer. The hell im gonna go through reinstalling all that stuff.. Is there any way to get the files from that rpm and install them manually?!?

why are you trying to remove it at all??? if for some reason it can't find the file, try freshening it, or just forcing it to install again

rpm -Uvh --force blah.rpm

rpm -Fvh blah.rpm

then ensure that it is on the system, look to check it's there...

ls /usr/lib/libGLU.so.1

should work fine really....

Pasting an error message into a post would help enormously.

I think he was referring to the ``error: package XFree86-Mesa-libGLU-4.2.0-72.i386.rpm is not installed'' message.

Let's see:

1.) Upgraded libGLU but rpm complains about libGLU already being installed. (OK)
2.) Freshened libGLU (no errors) (OK)
3.) Tries to erase the libGLU package file but rpm rightly complains that that is NOT installed.
4.) Tries to erase the package but rpm warns of dependency problems. (OK)
5.) Forced an upgrade of the package. (OK)

SchwarzeFeen: Step three is the only place where an error message was issued that was legit. The other things look acceptable.

Are you saying that libGLU is still not found?
