Can U install Red Hat 6rpm's in Red 7.1 ?

Post by joh » Tue, 31 Jul 2001 07:49:13


Can U tell me will R/H 6 rpm's install into R/H 7.1 OS. I was trying
to install XISP, and the only rpm I could find was for R/H 6.

I am getting 2 errors of 'X form >=0.88' and '' are
both needed. Doing 'locate' I can't find either, which seems odd, as
being a later version of R/H , I'd have thought that I would also have
had, later versions of these 2 files.

[ Got kppp sorted out- But I particulary wanted XISP for its facility
to allow SecureID card log-in ]

Any help gratefully received



1. Red Hat 7.1 - Installing Red Hat packages after Red Hat is already installed.

How can I install packages that I forgot to install with the Red Hat
7.1 installation?

Here's my problem:
Various pieces of Red Hat keep saying that I am missing a file and
that it needs to be installed with a certain package (namely most of
the Kontrol Panel).  But I have been unsuccessful at finding where
this is done.  I am still a newbie with Linux, but I would assume that
there should be an "Add/Remove Programs" equivalent with Linux.

Please help!

2. Properly kill program logging out of X?
