failed dependencies


I execute the following command:

rpm -ivh xxxxx.rpm

and I got the following error:

failed dependencies:

libc.so.5 is needed by xxxxx

What should I do to get this fixed?

I'm using RedHat 9.

Hi,

you have to install the libc5 package, but i don't know if this is useful, 'cause most systems are running on libc 6.

If something requires the libc5 package, it'll be taken care of by the libc6 package, I daresay

well not if it's dynamically linked to libc.so.5...

basically you're probably using a really old package. if there is no newer rpm available, download and compile the package from source and assuming nothing else has gone out of fashion then it should compile ok.
