possible to downgrade a package? (rpm dependency hell)
I installed freetype-2.1.4-1, and now I need to install freetype-devel. The problem is that freetype-devel requires freetype-2.1.3-6 (an older version).
So, is there any way that I can downgrade my version of freetype from 2.1.4-1 to 2.1.3-6 ?
I can't just rpm -e freetype and then install it again because a TON of other projects rely on it.
Maybe I can somehow modify the 2.1.3-6 rpm so redhat thinks its newer than 2.1.4-1 and it will install it? Or like swap them or something?
This really sucks because freetype-devel is the one thing I need that's preventing me from being able to compile ANYTHING with a gui.
