cannot install lm_sensors-2.5.5-x.i386.rpm on RH 7.1


I cannot install lm_sensors-2.5.5-3.i386.rpm nor lm_sensors-2.5.5-6.i386.rpm on RH 7.1.
The files complained by "failed dependencies" are present on my computer.
Why it fail to install?
Please help to fix the problem.
Thanks.

It is failing, because (as the error message says), you have missing dependencies. Install the glibc package. Also, RH7.1 is very, VERY old....the latest RedHat enterprise server is 5, and the latest 'free' RedHat is FedoraCore 10. I'd strong suggest upgrading your system, which will probably fix alot of other issues you'll face as you go on.
