    Question rpm error: Failed dependencies:


    Hi,

    I am trying to install rpm image of one of my application.

    It fails with error: Failed dependencies:
    and the depenency reported is for libldap.so

    I do have this library installed. Why rpm command is failing to detect
    the installed library ?

    I do not want o use --nodeps or -force flags.

    How do I resolve this ?

    regards,
    manju

    Just guessing because you gave little info regarding exact errors encountered and the name and version of the app that you are trying to install, but maybe the library you have installed already is not the correct version/release.

    I am installing my own application. While building, the application
    links to libldap.so but however I have not mentioned it as a dependent
    in the .spec file while building rpm.

    While installing it cribs for libldap.so without specifying the version and rpm -qR on the rpm image also lists libldap.so as dependend file but does not tell specific version .

    you may have version dependency problem.

    assume you have version 1.0
    but it seeks for 2.0...

    so, it is a problem. does it tell you which version it needs?

    No it does not.

    All it thorws is..

    error: Failed dependencies:
    libldap.so()(64bit) is needed by XYZXYZ.rpm

    btwn, its on Redhat 64bit system.
