Hi I am trying to install minicom on redhat enterprise and having a couple of problems. It tell me:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3) is needed by minicom-2.00.0-12
So I download glibc-2.3.2-11.9.src.rpm from redhat and do
rpm --install glibc-2.3.2-11.9.src.rpm and it returns nothing so I am guessing it in installed. however in the file list on the redhat site it says it shoudl create /usr/share/doc/glibc-2.3 or something like that, but its not there so it hasnt worked (and when I try and run the minicom again it still says it needs it).
I also did depmod -a (if i should do) and same problems happened
any ideas? (I am fairly new to linux as well)
You only installed the source and not the actual package. .src.rpm means source and .rpm is the compiled source which you need.
Thanks for that, I downloaded the packaqe and it tells me I need
glibc-common = 2.3.2-27.9 is needed by glibc-2.3.2-27.9
So I download that and do
rpm --install glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm and
rpm --upgrade glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm
and then depmod -a
Both of these return nothing so I I try the main package again and it still says I need this common one (dont think I have the source this time :-))
rpm -Uivh glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm glibc-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm
that shoudl isntall both of them
You don't need to use i with U.
