rpm install: A asks for B, B asks for A
I'm new to linux (RH9) and came across the following problem. While compiling php5, I got "libxml2 version 2.5.10 or greater required". I currently have libxml2-2.5.4-1. I downloaded libxml2-2.5.11-0.fdr.2.rh90.i386.rpm. The problem is that when I try to install it (with rpm -i or -U or -F) I get
error: Failed dependencies:
libxml2 = 2.5.4 is needed by (installed) libxml2-python-2.5.4-1
libxml2 = 2.5.4 is needed by (installed) libxml2-devel-2.5.4-1
BUT when I try to install (the same way) libxml2-python-2.5.11-0.fdr.2.rh90.i386.rpm i get "libxml2 = 2.5.11 is needed by libxml2-python-2.5.11-0.fdr.2.rh90" and when I try to install libxml2-devel-2.5.11-0.fdr.2.rh90.i386.rpm I get "libxml2 = 2.5.11 is needed by libxml2-devel-2.5.11-0.fdr.2.rh90".
So, I have a full circle. I suspect the solution to be something very simple, but this is a newbie talking!
