not sure

ok, here's the problem :

rpm -Uvh httpd-2.0.47-rbt.rh8.0.i386.rpm
warning: httpd-2.0.47-rbt.rh8.0.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 49e9e51a
error: Failed dependencies:

httpd = 2.0.40 is needed by (installed) httpd-devel-2.0.40-21.5

When I drill down, I find all programs are installed, they meet the requirements of what's needed (>= Version), etc.

my question:
how do I fix or get around this??

do I use
rpm -Uvh --nodeps ?

or what ??

last time I did that it screwed up my sys

RedHat Linux 9.0 (everything installed on default install.)

This is telling you that installed packages require a specific version of packages or libraries that you are trying to update. If you force the update with --nodeps, these installed packages will probably stop working, since their required libraries will be "too new".

Welcome to dependency hell. You will probably have to upgrade all the affected packages to newer versions (which will undoubtedly spawn more dependency issues).

Or you could switch to a system like apt-rpm or up2date, which is supposed to help in cases like this.

To add a specific to what speter says. You seem to be trying to install a Red Hat 8 rpm on Red Hat 9 system which may or may not work. With 20-20 hindsight, it does not work. Try and find the equivalent Red hat 9 rpm.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.

Thanks, that actually helps

but I've tried apt & up2date, & neither of them has an update for apache.

I'm anxiously waiting RH. Severn (9.1??) Due to it having apache 2.0.47, php 4.3.3 & many other new upgrades and fixes.
