    Updating Glib...


    Hi guys,
    I'm currently trying to update Glib on my laptop. The problem is, I think I have to uninstall my current version of Glib (Glib-2.6.3). My question is, how do I uninstall it so that I can install my newer version (Glib-2.8.3)? Most posts I've seen have said to use rpm -e Glib-x.x.x, but it doesn't seem to work for me. I'm currently running Madriva 2005. Thanks in advance to whoever can help!

    try using urpmi to update it, i.e as root, type the following: urpmi glib-2.8.3.

    If that doesn't work and you want to uninstall Glib, first, find out what it is actually called and if it is already installed using:
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep glib*
    then use rpm -e exact_name_of_glib_package
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
