: I am currently running RedHat 3.0.3. The RPM version is 2.0.
: I want to upgrade my RPM version to 2.7 without upgrading my entire Red
: Hat distribution if possible. What is the best way to do this?
: I tried simply pulling rpm version 2.7. When I run rpm on
: the new version, however, I get a message stating my rpm works only on
: rpm files <= 2.
: Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Ahhh... took me awhile to get this one figured out.. the doc on
the Redhat site is well hidden... One needs to upgrade to (uh, its late)
2.1.? (2, 3??) first, from your orig 2.0. Then you can upgrade to 2.2.7.
One thing, there is a message about "you WILL see dependancy
errors.." and something to the effect that if you don't know what it
means, dont upgrade..
I have yet to find more about what exactly this means, and how to fix it
(or just ignore it?). Any other info out there?
