    yum install <dependency> (more than 1??)


    I am trying to install a backup client and i get lots of dependency messages:
    Code:
     rpm -U gskcrypt64-8.0.14.11.linux.x86_64.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:

    I am not very good when it comes to Linux, especially dependencies, but i tried every variation i could think of:
    Code:
    yum install libc*
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Excluding Packages from Amcom-RHEL4 - Updates
    Finished
    Parsing package install arguments
    No Match for argument: libc*
    Nothing to do
    What can i try to do next at this point? I don't really know much about this server since it isn't a project i am involved with, i just know they want its data backed up. I have a feeling that there are a lot more dependencies that will show up as i do the other 3 rpm files for this package....

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You can use wildcards with yum, but you have to enclose the expression in single quotes, as in: yum install '*libc*'

    In any case, you generally should not use RPM to install packages on versions of RHEL that support yum as it will not install the missing dependencies for you, whereas yum will. I only use RPM to install packages in cases where I need a newer version of a package than the distribution supports, and it is safe to either install over the other version, or can be installed along with the other version. I had to do that recently on my RHEL 6.2 clone in order to get the ffmpeg package to update.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
