I was trying to install a package off the Suse 9.1 Pro using RPMBuild and when it is building the package I get an error stating the package needs the following dependencies, gdbm, rcs and texinfo. I've located the packages requested on the Suse 9.1 Pro DVD and copied them over to a directory. When I try to RPMBuild any of the three I get an error stating the s/w I'm trying to build needs the other two dependancies as well or else it won't build.

My question is how do I get these packages installed if they need each other to do this??

I hope this is not too confusing, I don't understand. Thank you.

try installing them on the same line:

rpm -i example1.rpm example2.rpm example3.rpm

Thanks. Can I perform multiple RPMBuild's on the same line?The files are src.rpm.

you could install the source rpms like this:

rpm -i example1.src.rpm example2.src.rpm example3.src.rpm

then create the binary rpms using rpmbuild, and after that proceed to install the binary rpms as in post #2...

why don't you simply use binary rpms to begin with for these??

Thanks again, I'll try this.

I'm having a hard time finding bin files for these. Do you know of a good source?

rpm's are a real pain in the ass.
does emerge work under suse ?

ive tried slackware, redhat, fedora and mandrake... but nothing has even come close oto gentoo's package management.

installing even the most complex things is all done in a single command line.
dependency's are automatically solved and downloaded and installed for you.

installing anything is as simple as "emerge unrealtournament2004"
