Unhappy RPM Circular Dependancies - Another Way?


Hello all, thanks for taking the time to read this.

I'm having an issue with some RPMs. Currently, I've got glibc-2.13-29 installed, and no glibc-common, but apparently I need glibc-2.2 for something. This is fine.

However, to be specific, I'm trying to install:

glibc-common-2.2.4-18.7.0.9.i386.rpm
glibc-2.2.4-18.7.0.9.i386.rpm

But guess what? They both require each other. Now is it possible to get rpm to install two things together to avoid this issue, or am I simply barking up the wrong tree here?

I've tried all sorts of higher versions of glibc and glibc-common and get much the same problems.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried??

rpm -Uvh one.rpm two.rpm

easy.

Er, I had tried one after the other but I was using -i not -U so it didn't seem to work.

This does seem to have the desired effect, although now I've got another bunch of dependancies to attend to!

Thanks, especially for being so prompt.
