On over a dozen machines I've not had any problem installing various
packages from the IBM Toolbox site in .RPM format. On 3 machines
though I get a failed dependency on /usr/bin/perl on samba and a few
other things. I've de-installed and re-installed the perl .rpm binary
to no avail. By default the binary gets installed to
/usr/opt/freeware/bin/perl and I tried symlinking to it, copying the
binary there, etc...
In all 3 cases the machines are at the exact same level as all the
others, 4.3.3 ML9 (clean, no oslevel -r or isntfix missing filesets or
# rpm -ivh samb*
error: failed dependencies:
/usr/bin/perl is needed by samba-2.2.1a-1
All other .RPM packages I installed on the numerous other machines are
installed on these 3 as well. Any idea of a base AIX fileset that
might cause this problem? A remnant of some shareware package from
freeware.bull.net perhaps? I have nothing other than monitor.2.1.9
from there installed but previously had a few other things. No other
perl is installed, including the AIX base package. I also tried
installing that perl.rte package to see if it would make a difference
and it didn't.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
