Unpacking SAMBA rpm

I downloaded a recent SAMBA binary rpm. Everytime I try to unpack the SAMBA rpm file I get a message saying "failed dependencies: needs /usr/local/bin/perl ". I copied the perl file from /usr/bin to /usr/local/bin, but I still get the message when I try to unpack.  I am using caldera openlinux 1.2.  What's the problem? By the way, this has occurred when trying to unpack Netscape 4.x as well.

Try rpm -ivh --nodeps samba.rpm I think that rpm knows about that you don't have perl installd with rpm at /usr/local/bin.
Btw. It's better to do a symbolic link insted of copying perl to /usr/local/bin.

ln -s /usr/bin/per /usr/local/bin/perl

Did you try "chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/perl"?
