I am attempting to install Qt from Scratch on a Red Hat 9.0 box. To do
this I need to also install GCC and GLIBC so working from RPMfind I
choose gcc-3.2.2-5.i386.rpm and glibc-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm as they are
both for RH9.
GLIBC installs fine.
GCC gives a dependency of glibc-devel >= 2.2.90-12. So RPMfind gives me
glibc-devel-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm for RH 9 which in turn gives a
dependency for kernel-headers >=2.2.1 again RPMfind gives me
kernel-2.4.20-30.9.i386.rpm which is a 13MB file for RH9 so im assuming
this is an entire updated kernel? When this is installed glibc-devel
still wants the kernel-headers >=2.2.1.
So question is where did I go wrong? Im pretty sure using the kernel
rpm is not correct but there does not appear to be a kernel-headers rpm
for RH9. I tried kernel-headers-2.4.17-1.i586.rpm but this wants
kernel=2.4.17 (which is obviously fair enough)
I have Qt running nicely on my Mandrake box but I was able to install
the GCC and GLIBC from mdk files which sorted out the dependancies itself.
Im using a RULE setup on the Red Hat box so trying to avoid anything
automatic like APT, URPMI, YUM etc
It would be nice to have something that would suggest the dependancies
and URPMI does this and politely asks permission to proceed to install
but can URPMI be installed easily on RH?
