Linking Libraries, Dependencies
I am running RedHat 6.0. I am trying to install openssh. The rpm of openssh that I have requires a newer version of RPM. RPM4 requires popt and some C libraries. I installed the C libraries required by popt, which are
but when I try to rpm -ivh popt*.rpm, it says I need these libraries. I've really only used newer RedHat distros, like Fedora, which autolink. So, does anyone know of a FAQ or tutorial that covers linking, or can anyone tell me how to link?
These are the packages I have been using:
Got them off of rpm.pbone.com cept for openssh, which was from
I appreciate any help in the matter.
If you're using rpm then in essense you are using a 'red hat like distro' and I'm not sure what you mean by autolink or needing a linking tutorial....you don't have to link by hand! It looks to me like some of your system was installed by RPM and some by some other means, which is why the RPMs can't find basic essentials (like libc - probably the single most important thing after the kernel).
My advice (to anyone still using the abomination that is RPM) is to compile it from source. As long as you installed the development tools when you installed your system then you'll find it a lot easier.
If I compile it from source, can I make a working RPM from that? Ultimately, I need to install these programs onto a RedHat 6.0 machine that has NO dev tools or libs.
Do you think that this is even a possibility?
Hmmmm, I think it must be a possibility because there are people out there who create RPM files of useful applications once they've compiled them from source themselves.
How to do it is a different matter, but it must have been asked before on these boards, or a google search for a tutorial in creating RPM's must yield something.
