Resolve RPM Conflicts

Posted on 2011-09-05

I'm trying to install 11gR2 on Oracle's unbreakable Linux 64 bit.  In the documentation the pre-installation requirements include RPM(s) one of which is elfutils-libelf-devel-0.125.   When I try rpm -ivhelfutils-libelf-devel-0-137.3 el5.x86_64rpm, I get a message missing dependency elfutils-libelf-sevel-static-x86_64 = 0.137-3.el5 is needed by package elfutils-libelf-devel-0135-3.el5.x86_64 (/elfutils-libelf-devel-0.137-3.el5.x86_64)
Im trying to use the 5.7 of Oracle's Unbreakable Linux.  If i rpm or yum the *devel* it tells me i must first have the static.  Then if i try to yum or rpm the *static* it tells me I must first have the *devel*?????
Has anyone gone through that install and figured how to resolve and move on to the install short of just installing on Windows?? :-)

as root, run
package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Then run
yum  install  elfutils-libelf-devel  elfutils-libelf-devel-static

Where is package-cleanup?

[root@localhost Server]# package-cleanup -problems
-bash: package-cleanup: command not found
[root@localhost Server]# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),1(bin),2(daemon),3(sys),4(adm),6(disk),10(wheel)
[root@localhost Server]# find / -name package-cleanup -print
[root@localhost Server]#

How about
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
and then
yum  install  elfutils-libelf-devel  elfutils-libelf-devel-static

[root@localhost Server]# rpm -Va -nofiles -nodigest

Need to have yum-utils package
yum install yum-utils

> -nofiles: unknown option
It is two "dash"es, "--"

rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
