Package dependency problem (glibc)

I was attempting to install the latest Gaim on RH8.0, but have since run into a never-ending cascade of dependency problems.

I'm trying to install glibc-4.80.6.i386.rpm. When I attempt to install it tells me that glibc-2.2.93-5 is an "unlocatable package".

What it comes down to is this:

warning: glibc-2.2.93-5.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e
warning: package glibc = 2.2.93-5 was already added, replacing with glibc <= 2.3.2-4.80.6
warning: package glibc-common = 2.2.93-5 was already added, replacing with glibc-common <= 2.3.2-4.80.6
error: Failed dependencies:
glibc = 2.2.93 is needed by (installed) glibc-devel-2.2.93-5

But when I check for these packages, they are already installed.
# rpm -qa | grep libc

What the hell is going on here? Thanks in advance.

So you need to uninstall glibc-devel first. Then install new glibc (and probably new glibc-devel).
