Ok here goes,

I am trying to install VMware onto my RedHat 9 machine.
I reed to compile my modules to get it to work.

My issue is however that I cannot seem to install GCC.
When I try to install it through the RPM manager I get the following error.

The following packages could not be found on your system, installation cannot continue.
krb5-libs = 1.2.7-10      krb5-devel
openssl = 0.9.7a-2      openssl-devel

So, I guess i need to install these, any pointers on the quicket way to do this...
Thanks,

well it's better to use the RH up2date program to update most of your application in your RH linux because it can update your application into the correct path or directory, the up2date info have a look here http://rhn.redhat.com/help/basic/up2date-config.html

and I think even the GCC redhat up2date will do for you.

Problem is a slight "catch 22":
Install system with openssl and krb5-libs but without the corresponding -devel packages,
run up2date (or similar) which will update the installed packages,
and then try install the development system (that will depend on the -devel packages) in the Add/remove promgram...
Which fails since the packages for -devel it knows are a missmatch for the ones updated to.
Solution is (as victorbx says) to get the the packages and install them manually.
Download from your closest redhat ftp mirror (or either http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/9/en/os/i386/ or ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/9/en/os/i386/), and install with
rpm -ivh <package file names>

Hi!

You could also just simply do the following:
rpm -ivh --nodeps gcc-x.x.x.ixxx.rpm

This is not the best solution, but if you are sure all other pakcages are ok and gcc should work this is how you install it anyway.

As can be seen above, all packages aren't Hasse... Not that it'd matter much. Fixing the dependency would probably be best though... No rpm database inconsitencies lurking in the shadows, primed to bite your thumb at the least opportune moment:-).

"As can be seen above, all packages aren't Hasse" ... Well, let's hope they aren't Hasse, all of them... Should have read
"As can be seen above all packages aren't, Hasse" ...

OK all here is the update.

I now need to install openssl 0.97a-2

i have tried to install openssl-0.9.7a-2.i386.rpm

but get the following error

package openssl-0.9.7a-20 (which is newer than openssl-0.9.7a-2) is already installed
        file /lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.7a from install of openssl-0.9.7a-2 conflicts with file from package openssl-0.9.7a-20

This error continues for a while... so any suggestions :-S

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

OK where would I find these files :-S
