Hi experts,

I'm running Mandrake7.2 and have dowloaded mutt version 1.3.28 rpm package to /usr/local. when i tried
"rpm -Uvh mutt-1.3.28i-1.1mdk.i586.rpm" it failed and gave me a warning:
"error: failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2)   is needed by mutt-1.3.28i-1.1mdk"

i did a search and found the fiel "libc.so.6" in the directory "/lib".

How can i install the mutt rpm package?

Thanks,
KEN

Try to use the switch "--nodeps".

So, you can type
"rpm -Uvh --nodeps mutt-1.3.28i-1.1mdk.i586.rpm", then it will not check the dependencies.

either your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable does not point to libc.so.6, or libc.so.6 seems not to be a GLIBC 2.2, then you need to install it first

That's ok. i'll try to figure it out myself...

anyway, i have another question to ask and have posted it to "Linux". Can you have a look at it? points for two posts could be yours...of course i know you don't help others only for some points. but i do think you can answer that question :)
