Hi,
I am trying to install the rpm of Xemacs-20.2-7.
It tells me it needs libpng.so.1.
If I try to install libpng-0.96-2 it tell me I need /bin/sh.
I have /bin/sh.
Can anyone help me out here?
Thanks Alot

The bash rpm fails to "provide" /bin/sh, so you have to use the --nodeps
switch.

Da meinte doch Rick Knebel neulich:

happened to me too sometimes. seems like something freaks out in the
rpm db

use rpm -i --nodeps libpng...
           ^^^^^^^^

should work.

This is supposedly fixed in later versions of RPM.  The latest is
version 2.4.10, available from ftp.rpm.org.

Install libpng without dependency check.

man rpm

1. eth0 and xemacs

Quick questions:

1) Anyone have a reason why bringing up interface eth0 on startup is so
slow. It takes a while on my linux desktop but on my Sony Vaio laptop
PGC-FX120, it takes a much longer time. I have it configured to use dhcp to
obtain ip address on my home network.

2) More importantly, can anyone tell me why xemacs will not start up if my
network isn't running but emacs will? Seems kinda strange that xemacs will
expect the network to be up before it will start when all I'm trying to do
is edit a file.

Note: My current distribution is Redhat 7.1 running kde on my laptop.

Any light on this matter will be truly appreciated.
