Rpm Lib version conflict


Hello

rpmlib<=4.0-1 is needed.Does it mean that RPM engine has to be updated.What shall i do

Regards
Saravanan

Does it mean that RPM engine has to be updated? yes it does. go to rpmfind and get newer rpms for the rpm library itself.

better?

U have payed a haeavy price for ur sicausticness.Now i am boiling under pressure.I uninstalled the existing version of RPM in my machine thinking that i could get the binaries for RPMS and restore everything but i was not able to do that.Plz we come to this site to learn if u expreinced person feel our questions are silly just ignore them rather than giving misleading replies.Know i am at my wits struggling to get things up,for the simple reasin there is no source available for RPMS 4.0.x..

i'm sorry i didn't mean to sound sarcastic. in your post you asked one actual question, to which i answered "yes". i don't really see that as misleading....

Also erm.. a heavy price? i'm totally lost now....

peace

I am sorry, maybe i should not have used the word power, sarcastic.

I should describe that Acid has a good sense of humour, which pretty draw me to stick reading his posts.

And myself find reading his posts entertaining.

No offence, no 'trolling'..........

peace

So did the rpm2tgz work? If so then get rpm-4.x.x.rpm and a development one and convert them to tarballs, install from tarballs and then you can use rpm database to store packages info, etc.
