Upgrading RPM

Post by Thor Legvo » Thu, 05 Dec 1996 04:00:00



.K., I've spent my 2 hours on RedHats website and searched far and wide.
Nothing on upgrading the rpm that comes with 3.0.3 to the 4.0 version.
Using 3.0.3 version on new packages dumps core, sometimes gives a
message "can only be used on <=2.0 packages"

I'm sure that this has been beaten to death in this group - please
just point me to where th edoc is hiding and I'll manage the rest.

Regards,

1. Broke RPM trying to upgrade RPM

I was trying to install the ddd debugger (ddd-3.3.1-5.i386.rpm), but it
 required lesstif.  So I tried to install lesstif-0.92.32-6.i386.rpm.  It
 started to install with the little progress bar window then it errors
 out, saying fatal error in gnorpm.  So I'm like, 'I'll just upgrade
 gnorpm'. Attempt to install it (gnorpm-0.96-11.i386.rpm) but it has
 dependency issues.  So I'm going install the required packages, starting
 with db3-3.2.9-4.i386.  Dependency issues, of course, but mainly
 gnorpm.[old version] requires db3-[old version] type shit.  So I say
 'yes' install anyway and everything seems to go fine.  Then I try
 installing the next needed package, rpm-4.0.3-1.03.i386.rpm ...nothing
 happens.  Try installing gnorpm-0.96-11.i386.rpm ...nothing happens.  So
 I think the package manager itself is on the blocks.
    How do I get
 past this? I'm assuming maybe finding the tar.gz of the same packages to
 rebuild the package manager, but I don't know anything about finding or
 installing that type.
