How to install rpm's on Redhat with automatic dependency resolving

Post by spanner on Tue Apr 15, 2008 4:42 pm


If you install the rpmdb-redhat rpm package before installing manually any additional packages from the Redhat distribution that have lots of dependencies, you can use the --aid option of the rpm command to resolve dependencies automatically, see this example:



# rpm -ivh rpmdb-redhat-4-0.20060803.i386.rpm
warning: rpmdb-redhat-4-0.20060803.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:rpmdb-redhat ########################################### [100%]


# rpm -ivh --aid gcc4-4.1.0-18.EL4.i386.rpm
warning: gcc4-4.1.0-18.EL4.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]

3:glibc-devel ########################################### [ 60%]
4:libgomp ########################################### [ 80%]
5:gcc4 ########################################### [100%]
