What is the error message please?
Comment 2 Mark Pawson 2004-09-27 08:14:19 UTC
Sorry, The error message is: -qip: unknown option This appears when I run : rpm -qip racvnc-1.0-1.i386.rpm from the command line. Thanks
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2004-09-27 11:40:08 UTC
What does the following say? rpm -qp racvnc-1.0-1.i386.rpm Try also rpm -qi -p racvnc-1.0-1.i386.rpm Does that work on your system?
Comment 4 Mark Pawson 2004-09-27 12:30:58 UTC
Hello Jeff, I have tried rpm -qp racvnc-1.0-1.i386.rpm it produces the following: racvnc-1.0-1 I also tried rpm -qi -p racvnc-1.0-1.i386.rpm it produced: -qi: unknown option Thanks
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2004-09-27 12:41:32 UTC
-qi unknown option not found means that /usr/lib/rpm/rpmpopt* is not being found. What does rpm -V rpm say?
Comment 6 Mark Pawson 2004-09-27 13:13:04 UTC
Jeff, It says: package rpm is not installed I have run rpm -i rpm-4.2.1-4.4 which does not work because it complains of a missing "popt = 1.8.1 is needed by rpm-4.2.1-4.4" thus I ran: rpm -q popt which said: popt-1.8.2-10 This I find most confusing, but it is probably beyond the scope of this bug, which appears to be a missing installation of rpm. FYI I installed RHEL 3 Taroon Update 3 and have since updated it fully using RHN. There appear to be a few problems with package conflicts where the package is already installed but rpm is asking for an older version, just like the description above. I imagine you'll be closing this bug? Thanks
Comment 7 Jeff Johnson 2004-09-27 13:57:17 UTC
Hmm, dunno what happened. Reinstalling rpm-4.2.3-10 from RHEL3U3 (all the packages, including popt) should fix the problem. Reopen this bug if you need more.
