    rpm fails to install dependencies


    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to install and rpm which fails:

    rpm -ivh /var/dist/Acision/DC/tptools-2900-2900_i03_f02_p05.B02.x86_64.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
    /bin/env is needed by tptools-2900-2900_i03_f02_p05.B02.x86_64

    I checked the system, /bin/env actually exists....has anyone ever seen this???

    Thank you

    Svetlana

    you can always install and ignore deps if you are sure they are there and OK

    just add --nodeps

    I can just assume, that the rpmdb of your system is fubar or you try to install a non-suse rpm.

    Judging from some search, I think that suse´s coreutils rpm installs env in /usr/bin/env.

    Can you please post the output of
    Code:
    rpm -qf /usr/bin/env
    rpm -qf /usr/bin
    I believe, the latter will show no package.


    Did you use
    - nodeps
    - force
    - and/or non-suse rpms before?
    Doing so can potentially harm the system and/or screw the rpmdb.


    Sorry Coopstah13, but using --nodeps -even if the dependency is in reality there- will not really help.
    At the next update, this issue would be back.


    Imho, there are two options:
    1) Use a rpm made for suse
    2) install a dummy rpm to fulfill the dependency in rpmdb, similar to
    ftp://ftp.owlriver.com/pub/mirror/OR...my-bin-sh.spec
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
