Install ProFTPd on RedHat 7.1


I was trying to install ProFTPd on my redhat 7.1 machine. When I tried to install the rpm, I got this error message:

error: failed dependencies is needed ........

So, I went to download the newest GLIBC which is glibc-2.2.4-19.3.i386.rpm. When I went to install it, I got another error:

error: failed dependencies
glibc-common = 2.2.4-19.3 is needed by glibc-2.2.4-19.3
glibc-devel < 2.2.3 conflicts with glibc-2.2.4-19.3
glibc > 2.2.2 conflicts with glibc-common-2.2.2-10
glibc = 2.2.2 is needed by glibc-devel-2.2.2-10

Well you're error message states exactly what you need. You will need to upgrade the glibc common libraryin order for them all to be compatible. I "think" the whole glibc library is included in the newest GCC 3.0.3 compiler, which has ALL of the libraries you need and installs them all at once. But I can't guarantee it, you might do some research and find out for sure.

You can get that from:

Once you descompress it using bzip2 and tar run the following:

./make install

This will take a long time to compile.

If by chances you still get the same errors and it won't let you compile.. then you'll have to use an RPM to install.

This is found at:

Assuming you have a Pentium II. If not, use and look for the same filename ending in the appropriate syntax (i386) for your computer.

Thanks for the reply guys.

I found a way to do upgrade the glibc. The glibc and the glibc-common are interdependent. So, there's no way to install it one then another. The solution is to install both at the same time, and it worked. This is what i did

rpm -Uvh glibc-2.2.4-19.3.i386.rpm glibc-common-2.2.4-19.3.i386.rpm --nodeps
