Unhappy j2sdk on linux (slakware 8.1)


Hi,
I would like to install j2sdk on Linux (slackware 8.1) but when I try to install the package *.rpm I obtain this error:

bash-2.05a# rpm -i j2sdk-1_4_1-fcs-linux-i586.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
glibc >= 2.1.2-11 is needed by j2sdk-1.4.1-fcs
/bin/sh is needed by j2sdk-1.4.1-fcs

For slackware 8.1 the version of glibc is 2.2.5; therefore the constraint glibc >= 2.1.2-11 is satisfied!

Could you please explain me this error?

Thank you.

Gaspare

presumably the rest of the system is installed with slackware's pkgtool, not using rpms. consequently rpm has no idea wether you haev glibc installed or not. try an alternative method of installation, likte the self installing binaries sun distribute

If you just need the runtime libs for java , then here is a place to download a slackware ready package , use installpkg or pkgtool
to install it .

Hello,
I have just installed the self installing binaries (1.4.1) and it works.
Thank you.

In the future you can do the following:

1. rpm -i --force --nodeps blah-blah.rpm

or

2. rpm2tgz to convert *.rmp to *.tgz

Or better yet, avoid rpm's all together for Slack RPM's are very cool, and work great; but for systems that are setup to use them. RPM based distros like Mandrake and Redhat are designed for this, and have an RPM database prebuilt and ready to go out of the box.

If you find you *have* to use an rpm, I'd take pesho's suggestions and rpm2tgz it first, and then go from there.

Cool
