Question glibc upgrade question

Quick question for the Brain Trust:

I'm trying to install GNUCash, and to do this I need to install some other packages. Long story short, I need to upgrade my glibc packages.

So I'm trying to do this, but to upgrade glibc, I get a dependency error -- it needs the glibc-common package to be upgraded. When I try to upgrade the glibc-common package, it fails, requesting that glibc be upgraded. (kind of like a chicken / egg thing)

I'd appreciate any assistance anyone can offer.


[root RedHat ~]# rpm -i --test glibc-2.2-12.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
glibc-common = 2.2 is needed by glibc-2.2-12
[root RedHat ~]# rpm -i --test glibc-common-2.2-12.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
glibc < 2.2-12 conflicts with glibc-common-2.2-12

I'm trying to do the same thing, and so this is what you must do..

install gnucash rpm using the following options to rpm command

rpm -i --nodeps

this should install it without any deps problem

otherwise consult the manual with

man rpm

this should shed some light
