Xanda - /dev/project - Red Hat RPM Dependency problem

Well when RPM works, you think life is better and when it does not works then you thinks life sucks ;) However, RPM has –aid option that solves the Dependency problem. It is created to automatic installation of dependent packages. To use this –aid switch with rpm you need to install special RPM package first called rpmdb-redhat. Locate this package from CD and install it via rpm command:

# rpm -ivh rpmdb-redhat*

Once installed then use rpm command as follows:

# rpm -ivh --aid mysql*


# rpm -ivh --aid rpm-file-name-version.rpm

It will install mysql client with all dependencies. If you are RHN subscriber then you don’t have to use rpmdb-redhat package use up2date command (see how to configure RHN):

# up2date -i -v mysql*

Please note that –aid switch does not works with third party RPM. Fedora user must use YUM. –aid works best if you have all rpm packages copied to single directory on hard disk or on ftp/http server. For example:

# rpm --aid -ivh*
