apt + readline + postfix + etc...


When attempting to install readline I get an error of a previous version. readline-4x has many dependancies. How do I update this package without first removing the 4 x version?




rpm -ivh /usr/local/tarfiles/readline-5.0-1.2.i586.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
file /usr/share/info/history.info.gz from install of readline-5.0-1.2
conflicts with file from package readline-4.3-306.8
file /usr/share/info/readline.info.gz from install of readline-5.0-1.2
conflicts with file from package readline-4.3-306.8


Thanks

This can also be done through Yast where options for ignore, down-grade, delete can be selected based on the dependency/package. What will be the impact? Will I need to recompile each dependency?


Thanks
