mm Shared Memory Allocation and OpenPKG


Hi all,

I'm trying to install a package that requires mm. I have downloaded the mm package, as a src rpm, but when I log in as root, and do rpmbuild --rebuild mm-1.3.0-20030307.src.rpm I get the following:

[root@localhost root]# rpmbuild --rebuild mm-1.3.0-20030307.src.rpm
Installing mm-1.3.0-20030307.src.rpm
warning: user openpkg does not exist - using root
warning: group openpkg does not exist - using root
warning: user rse does not exist - using root
warning: group rse does not exist - using root
error: Failed build dependencies:
OpenPKG is needed by mm-1.3.0-20030307
openpkg >= 20020206 is needed by mm-1.3.0-20030307
[root@localhost root]#

So I then go and get openPKG, as a src rpm, and do the following:

[root@localhost root]# rpmbuild --rebuild openpkg-1.3.0-1.3.0.src.rpm

Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.81420 (%build)

But many more occurrences of exactly the above output. I have a few questions...

1) What is bootstrapping?

2) Why do I need this openPKG?
I have been to the directory where the rpm should have been created, and there are subdirectories within the openpkg directory, namely:

[root@localhost openpkg-1.3.0]# ls
bash-2.05b bzip2-1.0.2 curl-7.10.6 db-3.2.9 gzip-1.3.5 make-3.80 patch-2.5.4 rpm-4.0.2 tar-1.13.25 zlib-1.1.4
[root@localhost openpkg-1.3.0]#

Each of these directories has a make file, configure file etc inside...but....

Haven't I already got these packages installed? If so, why do I need them again?

3) What is OpenPKG? I have looked at the website, www.openpkg.org and done many google searches, but I cannot make head nor tail of it, nor establish how I can possibly install it.

4) How can I install it?

I would be exceptionally greatful if someone could please help me with these questions, I have been trying to install these packages for ages now, and have had no luck whatsoever.

Thanks so much,

Matt
