Sh dependency needed
 
Hi,

I want to install Maya (which is an RPM package) on slack 10.2,I have the RPM package tool,but when I try to install Maya with it I get this error:
Code:

error:failed dependencies /bin/sh is needed by maya
So I need the dependency called ''sh''.I've searched on google for it,but didn't find anything.Any tips on how to solve this little problem?

kind regards
Deelk

Run the rpm command with an extra parameter:
Code:

rpm -Uvh --nodeps some_filename.rpm
or convert the RPM package to a Slackware package using
Code:

rpm2tgz some_filename.rpm
installpkg some_filename.tgz

I laughed when I read that... That's why you don't install RPM's on Slackware. To be honest, I'm not sure why Pat even builds it. He used it once on a docbook build script or something gnome related a version or two ago... I like to scoot rpmoffset and rpm2targz over to a rebuilt cpio package and chuck rpm out the friggin window. ;)

/bin/sh is a symbolic link to /bin/bash which is a part of the bash package. I assume RPM noticed it had no package database and thought you had a completely empty partition.:tisk: Man I hate that PM...

Anyway, Alien Bob has the right of it. The second option being preferable IMO...

Ok,I installed it using this command rpm -Uvh --nodeps some_filename.rpm,but when I type Maya (the app I'm trying to install) in the terminal it says command not found.I tried install it by converting it to tgz and then install it,but I had the same error when trying to load it.

Maybe its maya, not Maya. Letter size makes difference.

I've tried that already,but it didn't work.:)

Ok. Use pkgtool, view Maya and notice where Maya binary is placed. Then go there and run it.

Does really nobody know how to fix this,please?Do I have to contact Patrick for this?

Alien_Hominid 04-08-2006 11:10 AM

Where did you get Maya from? Maybe somebody will download and try on his computer...

I looked for it very briefly. I came to the conclusion it was closed source. I really think the problem here is that your just not too sure of what your doing, hence, the reason people are staying away. Could be wrong.

Give me a link to the RPM and I'll help you. Otherwise this looks like it's going to take awhile... ;)

If you still need help, post the contents of /var/log/packages/Maya-whatever-blah-blah. Try to put it in code tags.
