Default rpm installation dependencies issue

Hi All,

While installation of rpms by command I normally face the dependencies issues. Anyway to handle them?


[root@server RPMS]# rpm -ivh vnc-4.0-8.1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
/sbin/runuser is needed by vnc-4.0-8.1.i386
/sbin/service is needed by vnc-4.0-8.1.i386
libICE.so.6 is needed by vnc-4.0-8.1.i386
libSM.so.6 is needed by vnc-4.0-8.1.i386
libX11.so.6 is needed by vnc-4.0-8.1.i386
libXext.so.6 is needed by vnc-4.0-8.1.i386
Suggested resolutions:

I read somewhere the --aid command that it resolve the dependencies if the same directory has the other rpms but when i run this command I am getting this error. ( I have copied the RHEL4-DVD to hard drive).

[root@server RPMS]# rpm -ivh vnc-* --aid
error: Failed dependencies:
/etc/redhat-release is needed by initscripts-7.93.11.EL-1.i386

Anyone can solve this problem?

Many thanks.

Hi shamuk80,

you can solve this by installing the RPM via

yum localinstall vnc-4.0-8.1.i386.rpm --nogpgcheck
If the option --nogpgcheck is not available on your sytem (I'm not sure if it is available on RHEL) you have to disable gpgchecks in the yum configuration temporary and run the above mentioned command without --nogpgcheck.

vi /etc/yum.conf
Best regards,
