RPM Dependency Errors on 10.0


When running rpm on slackware 10.0, and attempting to
install Acrobat I am getting many dependency errors. The first few lines of
errormessages follows:
error: Failed dependencies:
/bin/sh is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
ld-linux.so.2 is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libX11.so.6 is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libXext.so.6 is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libatk-1.0.so.0 is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libc.so.6 is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0) is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1) is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1.2) is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1.3) is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2) is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.4) is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3) is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
libdl.so.2 is needed by AdobeReader_enu-7.0.1-1
.... and many many more!
# All of the modules above (and others not shown)
# are in $PATH! And what is more baffling is that
# rpm is looking for /bin/sh, and `/bin` is most certainly on $PATH
# all directories for modules are chmod 755

As per the instructions at
http://www.die.net/doc/linux/HOWTO/m...ackware-3.html
'rpm --initdb' was run first

Any and all help is appreciated.
Thanks
Tim

rpm -ivh yourpackage.rpm --nodeps

With Slack - if you can help it - compile from source instead of RPM's.

Or as in the case of Adobe Reader 7, download the binary distribution version, instead...

:-) I do so whenever I can help it. In fact acrobat comes with .tgz *but* this was
a test. I need to extract an installer for win4lin and there is no source. Thought I
would try acrobat first.

I will try the nodeps switch and see how that goes.
thanks

It's a good practice to not install rpm and it's packages into Slackware system. If you can't avoid rpm-only package, convert it to tgz with rpm2tgz first. Then extract it into empty subdirectory, do any changes to meet your requirements and finally create install/slack-desc and optionaly install/doinst.sh files and create slackware package with makepkg tool.
