Upgrade packages with RPM


This should be a very easy thing to do but it is escaping me. I am running RedHat Enterprise 3 update 2 and I need to install a later version of Kerberos. Currently the version of Kerberos is 1.2.7 and I need 1.3 1 . I have the later RPMs (from FC1) but when I issue

rpm -Uvh (kerberos package name)

I get lots of dependancy errors. The upgrade never happens even though I specified the U switch with the rpm command. I am only replacing the older files with newer ones so it should all just work. Does anybody know what I am missing? btw I already tried the --nodeps option but that just broke just about everything so I rolled back to the original version.

Jack
