Get this error message: "filesystem is needed by glibc-2.3.2-92" when installing it?

This is what happens when I try to install glibc:

linux:~ # /openpkg/bin/openpkg rpm -i /root/Packages/glibc.rpm
warning: /root/Packages/glibc.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 9c800aca
error: Failed dependencies:
filesystem is needed by glibc-2.3.2-92

But I must have a filesystem for the computer to work - shouldn't I?

I think it's a dependecy problem. I didn't ever before heared about a package named filesystem.

Try querying the package name via
Try installing without it just type
rpm -ivh --nodeps <your package>
(of course you can use openpkg)
