dependency error---mutt installation error

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.

i'm looking for a way to install the package smoothly...

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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Sorry EE didn't email me to notify your post, ahoffman!

i did a search on the web, but just couldn't find a place to download glibc2.2......i'm running Mandrake7.2, could you recommend a site to me where i can download glibc2.2?

Thanks,

Hi,
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 :)
