Failed dependencies CompressedFileName


I am installing hsflinmodem.rpm and it fails due to missing :

rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) and
rpmlib (CompressedFileNames)

Are you sure you downloaded the right rpm? You must have the rpm that exactly matches your kernel.

It's been a long time since I have had to use those drivers. It looks like they have changed the site since I was there.

They say the drivers will work on most 2.4 and 2.6 kernels. Since you have a 2.2 kernel these drivers probably wont work. Upgrade to a 2.4.x kernel and give it another try.

Getting softmodems to work can be a real pain. You would be better off getting a hardware modem.

Good Luck,
Ted.

It looks like you have an RPM-based distro. Download the latest kernel from rpmfind.net or from your distro's site. Open a terminal and su to root then type: "rpm -i <filename>" where filename is the name of the kernel, i.e. kernel-2.6.3-7.mdk.rpm. Usually the rpm will run Lilo for you so you can reboot and you will see a new option for booting up. Boot to the new kernel and make sure everything is working. Later you can edit /etc/lilo.conf to automatically boot to the new kernel.

Good Luck,
Ted.

Can you set up a dual-boot with Windows on that machine. You could then download ther kernel in Windows the boot into Linux and install it. Or, it you have a friend with a CD burner, have your friend download it and burn it to a CD. Other than that you might be stuck. There are Linux compatible modems that should work without all the hassle.

Good Luck,
Ted.

Ted, Sounds like a good idea...I have space but I already assigned all of 20 gb to Linux....do I have to reinstall Linux and install Windows first ??
Thanks...

The easiest way is to install Windows first and create two partitions. Then install Linux and Linux will take care of the rest for you.

Good Luck,
Ted.
