Mozilla install error

I am trying to install Mozilla 1.3 on Red Hat 7.2. When I run rpm -Uvh *.rpm I get the following error message:

error: failed dependencies:
mozilla = 0.9.2.1 is needed by galeon-0.11.3-2

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
James

The argument you specified "rpm -Uvh" corrosponds to upgrade, verbose, with human output.  I believe this means that you are uninstalling the old package and then re-installing the new package.  You might want to try:

  rpm -Fvh

which means rpm freshen, verbose, human, which will update the package installed, which is cool if you want to perform the upgrade.  However if this is not your intention, then you may force the uninstallation of Mozilla and reinstall the new one.  Since you are re-installing it anyways, the dependancy will still be there when galleon calls for it.

Therefore, do the following:

rpm -Uvh --force name_of_rpm.rpm

which will force the removal of the named rpm(s) with no regard for their dependancies.

Correction to my last sentance, it will force the allowance to remove the package, and the install the new one.

I just want to be clear. When the "U" option upgrades with the --force option (I understand that very well) will galeon still function with the new version of Mozilla even though the error says it needs the old version?

if you dont use galeon just remove it with
rpm -e galeon   or your favorite package manager
otherwise you may force it with
rpm -Uhv --force mozilla*.rpm    which may brake the package galeon anyway

If you want both, get mozilla as tgz file (unpack it to /usr/local/) this should work anyway.
