rpm on non RedHat system interacts with ldconfig
Posted on 1997-06-19
I am upgrading a linux 486 system running Slackware 3.0 and kernel 1.3.59 with umsdos, which I need because of the hard disk configuration.
I have used rpm to upgrade libc.so.5 and tell rpm that libdb.so.2.0.0 was present.
As a result ldconfig now reports errors.
I have more details of the problem available.
I want to know
1. How to use rpm without messing up my system
2. How to get the system to recognise the new version of libc.so.5
3. What further actions and upgrades are needed.
Please note that telling me to use RedHat is not an answer unless they will support use of umsdos.
