I'm on RHES 4.x

I downloaded 2 dovecot RPM packages from
 http://packages.sw.be/dovecot/

dovecot-1.0.13-1.el4.rfx.i386.rpm       13-Nov-2010 22:15  1.8M  RHEL4 and CentOS-4 x86 32bit
   and
dovecot-0.99.13-1.2.el4.test.i386.rpm   21-Feb-2005 16:57  693K  RHEL4 and CentOS-4 x86 32bit

The first rpm fails with error below :
# rpm -i ./dovecot-1.0.13-1.el4.rfx.i386.rpm
warning: ./dovecot-1.0.13-1.el4.rfx.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6
error: Failed dependencies:
        libmysqlclient.so.14(libmysqlclient_14) is needed by dovecot-1.0.13-1.el4.rfx.i386

I have a hard time trying to locate an rpm that contains libmysqlclient.so.14
& have no luck :
# rpm -i ./mysql-libs-5.1.42-4.el6.i686.rpm
warning: ./mysql-libs-5.1.42-4.el6.i686.rpm: V3 RSA/MD5 signature: NOKEY, key ID f21541eb
error: Failed dependencies:
        libcrypto.so.10 is needed by mysql-libs-5.1.42-4.el6.i686
        libssl.so.10 is needed by mysql-libs-5.1.42-4.el6.i686
        rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1 is needed by mysql-libs-5.1.42-4.el6.i686
        rtld(GNU_HASH) is needed by mysql-libs-5.1.42-4.el6.i686
        rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1 is needed by mysql-libs-5.1.42-4.el6.i686


Then I installed the 2nd dovecot rpm successfully but its filename indicated
it's a "test" version :

# rpm -i ./dovecot-0.99.13-1.2.el4.test.i386.rpm
warning: ./dovecot-0.99.13-1.2.el4.test.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6

# /etc/init.d/dovecot start
Starting IMAP daemon (dovecot):                            [  OK  ]


Q1:
Is the test version rpm  of dovecot reliable?  It's only half the size of
the other rpm (that I was not able to install)

Q2:
Kindly assist me to resolve the 1st rpm issue : let me know where I
can download the dependencies etc

You need the following package

mysqlclient14 , I also think this would need mysqlclient14-devel.

As for the package you were trying to install

# rpm -i ./mysql-libs-5.1.42-4.el6.i686.rpm

This would not work for you because its built for RHEL6 the .el6 part of the file means that this is for RHEL6 not RHEL4

You dont need to download anything the packages is in the installation CDs, with all the dependencies that it needs.

You can try the optiong --redhatprovides to determine which package contain the required file and you need rpmdb-redhat package to be installed on your system.

rpm -q --redhatprovides libmysqlclient.so.14

Hi Small Student,

> installation CDs
Do you mean Redhat Installation CDs?  Well, I really have to hunt
for it as it's a rather old version.  What I have on hand is RHES 5.2
DVD media


Hi JUpanwar,
>rpm -q --redhatprovides libmysqlclient.so.14
To issue the above command, do I need the Redhat CD/DVD inserted
into the server?


Will be nice if you guys can provide me the link / url to download the
neccesary stuff
