i'm assuming this question should be super easy for linux people, but i'm a newbie.  i'm tryin g to upgrade curl to the latest version, so i ran the command:  rpm -Uvh curl-7.18.2-1.i386.rpm

i'm getting the following errors, so how can i fix?

Hi,

Which Operating system you are trying to install this package?
If you want install this package you need to install dependencies also ..

you can download packages and dependencies to the below link.

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=curl&submit=Search+...&system=&arch=

if you are using fedora operating system then you can use

yum install curl

if you are using ubuntu like OS..
apt-get curl

--

good luck.

Since you don't have yum AND you have all these package requirement, my suggestion is to consider an upgrade to the system, if possible.

If not, download each package (libcurl4...) from rpmfind as noted by remeshk, install these with rpm -Uvh and finally install curl as rpm -Uvh.

It is likely you will find other dependencies (libcurl4 requires libXX, which requires libYYY...), but that is the disadvantage of running old distro.

i ended up down loading the sourcecode, and doing a ./configure and make install.... this worked.
