Question not appear to be a RPM package!


I saved and “rpm” file from a site but when I try to install it, rpm –i “glibc…rpm” it tells me “….rpm does not appear to be a RPM package.” What do I have to do to the file to make it a RPM package?

Are you installing the rpm as root? You can type su at the commend line to log in as root. Can you do a checksum on it? Did you try to redownload it in case of corruption?

I ran chacksum and it said package not installed.
So, I tried to instal it and I got:
"failed dependencies:
glibc > 2.2.2 conflicts with glibc-common-2.2.2-10"
What now?
Should I uninstal the glibc-common-2.2.2-10?
Thanks.

That means you also have to upgrade glibc as well. You download that, put them both in a directory, and type something like rpm -U glibc* If it says there is another dependecy then you must upgrade that as well.

You now are experiencing what is commonly referred to as "dependency hell".
