Bugger!


Hi all!

Having an issue. Recently acquired an SAP cd to install on top of my Linux box (Red Hat 6.2).

Problems start when I have to start downgrading a file within my library and stick one in from RedHat 6.1. The official statement from SAP is-:

You will have to downgrade the ncurses libraries.The version 5 that is shipped with RH6.2 does not work with the SAP DB programs like xcontrol. A not very nice but simple workaround is to remove the ncurses-5 libraries with

rpm -e --nodeps ncurses ncurses-devel

This works fine by the way! The problem comes at the next stage when I have to enter the command:

rpm -ivh ncurses-4.2-25.i386.rpm ncurses-devel-4.2-25.i386.rpm

I am coming up with the error message

cannot open file ncurses-4.2-25.i386.rpm
error "failed dependencies"
"ncurses=4.2 is needed by ncurses-devel-4.2-25"

What the hells all that about

Cheers over, I'll give that a bash, but i think I've already tried that, anyway we'll see.
