    rpm fails to find dependencies


    Hi,

    I'm trying to install

    msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.rpm

    with

    root@marinus:~/Desktop/Download# rpm -ivh msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.rpm

    but that results in

    error: Failed dependencies:
    /bin/sh is needed by msttcorefonts-1.3-4
    /usr/sbin/chkfontpath is needed by msttcorefonts-1.3-4

    /bin/sh exits, is there a way to force that?
    I don't have chkfontpath in /usr/sbin, how can I obtain that?

    I hope you can help,

    thanks a lot!

    Marinus.

    try this:
    Code:
    rpm -ivh --nodeps msttcorefonts-1.3-4.noarch.rpm
    all this tells is to ignore the dependancies
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    Hi,

    thanks for that! About fifteen minutes ago I just gave up and burned all Windows TTF fonts on CD and copied them to Linux.
    It works fine, but I'll know what do to next time now.
