rpm not working

Hi All,

I am having RHEL 5.4 64-bit OS. When I run the command "rpm --help" I get the following error. Please help:

rpm: /usr/lib64/ no version information available (required by rpm)
rpm: /usr/lib64/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib64/
rpm: /usr/lib64/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib64/
rpm: /usr/lib64/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib64/
rpm: /lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.7' not found (required by /usr/lib64/
rpm: /lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by /usr/lib64/

Thanks in advance.

You are missing 64bit version of popt as well as glibc packages. Install them.

Also try run:

ldconfig /lib64
Check if it helps.

Thanks veerain, the correct command is "ldconfig" and not "ldocnfig"

The output of this command is as mentioned below. However, "rpm --help" gives the same error as mentioned earlier.

[root@bkpdrill ~]# ldconfig /lib64
ldconfig: /usr/lib64/ is not a symbolic link

[root@bkpdrill ~]#
