Upgrading RPM to V3.0.3: libbz2.so.0 dependancy?
Posted on 2000-02-02
Where the heck can I get libbz2.so.0 so that I can upgrade my RPM to the latest version?
On my RH V6.0 Intel PC, the version of RPM is RPM-3.0-6.0. I have download the latest version of RPM, rpm-3.0.3-6x.1386.rpm, so that I can upgrade my RPM to the latest release.
When I enter rpm -U --test rpm-3.0.3-6x.1386.rpm I get:
error: failed dependancies:
bzip2 >= 0.9.0c-2 is eeded by rpm-3.0.3-6x
libbz2.so.0 is needed by rpm-3.0.3-6x.
I currently show (via RPM -q -a) that bzip2-0.9.0c-1 is installed on my PC, but I do not see in the listing an entry for libbz2.so.0. Further, I can find no mention of an RPM for libbz2.so.0 at rpmfind.net (Rufus RPM database).
The only mention of libbz2.so.0 was by Red Hat in their V3.0.3 RPM release announcement, as follows:
Version: 3.0.2 -> 3.0.3
- revert to shared libbz2.so now that bzip2 is in base install.
Whatever that is supposed to mean 8-^
I don't want to use the -nodepends RM switch unless I know that the libbz2.so.0 is already installed, BTW. I would rather have a working RPM than the latest RPM version which is working funky due to a missing libbz2.so.0
