lftp dependencies RH9, package manage?
ok, SOO, i have a virtual server running Redhat9... i know i know, disgustingly old. BUT it is whats available, so i must deal with it...

anyway, i need to install lftp (or at least SOME kind of directory mirror ftp client) on this RH9 machine, but i am not familiar with package management of this era. from what i can tell, its all done by hand. compiling from source doesnt work because i dont have a c++ compiler, and the rpm -i of the custom redhat9 binary RPM gives me:

error: Failed dependencies: is needed by is needed by is needed by is needed by

so, that means i have to go hunt all of these down, in the correct version BY HAND? is there no other option?

i actually already tried installing some but i gave up because its too difficult and i am obtuse. thanks for the tips.

So you think two years ago is ancient history? :) The "era" hasn't exactly changed yet.

Fortunately, figuring out which packages contain those libraries isn't (usually) rocket science. For example, should be in libgpg-error-*.rpm and in gnutls-*.rpm etc. If in doubt, use Google/ or something. I bet the person who made that lftp package also provides the other necessary packages.

If you don't fancy downloading and installing by hand, install (and configure) APT or YUM.
