rpm isn't working (won't install)


i've downloaded an rpm to update my openssl. i'm running linux 7.3 so openssl-devel-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm looks the best to update with. however i'm having trouble installing it. i've used rpm -U --force openssl-devel-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm....but this is the error i get. can anyone help.....



# rpm -U --force openssl-devel-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
openssl = 0.9.6b-35.7 is needed by openssl-devel-0.9.6b-35.7


note: openssl-0.9.6b-28 is the rpm that is found when running rpm -qa

It looks like you are going to have to find openssl-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm to upgrade.

Try putting both rpms in an empty folder, cd to that folder and try

rpm -Uvh *

move openssl-devel-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm (aka newer version) to some test file and tried rpm -Uvh *. still getting same error.



# rpm -Uvh --force *
error: failed dependencies:
openssl = 0.9.6b-35.7 is needed by openssl-devel-0.9.6b-35.7

i can't seem to find the old openssl rpm.

cd /
find . -name "openssl*.rpm"

are only returning the locations of the newer rpm's. the rpm -qa is only telling me which version of the openssl is running. not where it is located. i don't know if the upgrade option (that isn't working properly) has already removed some of them. anyway i can't find the old rpm to place in the folder with the new one. thanks for the link hopefully that will help. still though if anyone knows why the upgrade isn't working i would like to know.....thanks

BTW, What do you mean by linux 7.3 as there is no such animal? Would that perhaps be Red Hat 7.3?

The error message is telling you that you need to match openssl and openssl-devel. You need to download both packages.

openssl-devel-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm
openssl-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm

If you have and can't remember where you downloaded the other package to, try this

updatedb
locate openssl-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm

If you havent found and downloaded it you will have to do so.

Just in case you are running Red Hat 7.3, here are some links:

yeah sorry......


i'm running redhat 7.3. therefore my search for the most recent and stable openssl rpm for red hat 7.3 was openssl-devel-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm. anyway i've been trying to upgrade my openssl from a lower version and i've been having problems.....


there hopefully that makes more since.


and it seems to be working now once i got both files together
openssl-devel-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm
openssl-0.9.6b-35.7.i386.rpm

thanks again
