Well..Since I havent experimented much with extracting file from an rpm archive, I'll not be able to provide the exact solution.

However, there's a program called 'mc' that can be used to browse and copy files out of an rpm archive.

Click the link below

http://rpmseek.com/rpm-pl/mc.html?hl=de&cx=0::

Now download 'mc' for RedHat 9, the download link is at the bottom of the webpage that you'll get by clicking the above link. Just spot the file for RedHat 9....

mc-4.6.0-4.i386.rpm RedHat 9 4.6.0 4 i386

Install mc and lets hope that this time you get through..

Cheers!

Hi,

I am trying to install phpBB2, for which (I believe from all the messages I've read) php-mysql has to be installed first. I carefully read through all the messages in this thread and tried the suggested techniques. When I ran apt-get it seems like I still have a dependency problem:

Code:
apt-get -f install php-mysql-4.0.2-1.i386.rpm Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Selecting php-mysql for 'php-mysql-4.0.2-1.i386.rpm'
php-mysql is already the newest version.
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  MySQL-shared-compat: Obsoletes: MySQL-shared
  php-mysql: Depends: libmysqlclient.so.6 but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
Please advice how I can solve this dependency problem.

Thanks,

Sudhi.
