RPM Dependency Problem


Morning All,
Firstly, I'm running Redhat 7.3

Now, for Jo's dump question for the day...
I am trying to install the glibc RPM, which requires the glibc-common.

Here in lies the problem, I can't install glibc-common without installing glibc BUT I can't install glibc without installing glibc-common.

How do I get round this dependecny problem?

Regards
Jo

If you run RPM from the command-line, you can give it a list of RPMs to install, and it will resolve any inter-dependencies like that. Try this from a terminal window:

rpm -Uvh glibc-x-x-x.rpm glibc-common-x.x.x.rpm

(where x-x-x is whatever version you are trying to install).

Upgrading glibc can be a big hassle, though, so you may find that there are other dependencies. You also might encounter new problems with already-installed software. I recently went through this and had to install/upgrade something like 100 packages in order to get everything working again!
