Courier-IMAP RPM Problem


I am trying to install courier-imap-2.1.1-1mdk.i586.rpm on RedHat 9 and am having a few problems/questions.

1) Does the "mdk" stand for mandrake? If so, will this work for Redhat?

2) When I try to install this is says "perl base is needed for...". I have perl-5.8.0-88 installed, isn't that enough? Shoud I install courier-imap with --nodeps?

3) I tried download and installing perl-base-5.8.0-19mdk.rpm, it says it conflicts with package perl-5.8.0-88.

I would appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!

1) yes. maybe. why are you tryign to though? there's no need.

2) no, "perl" is not "perl-base", never install with --nodeps unless you erally know you can.

3) well it does... always upgrade packages, don't just install them, use -U not, -i

1) I cannot find a courier-imap RPM for redhat, do you happen to know where to find one?

2) Great Thanks

3) I did use -Uvh and I still get the conflict. How do I get around the conflict? Is there an updated Perl and perl-base package that I can use together?

Thanks!
