Description of problem:
I'm upgrading a RH6.2 to 7.3 manually (don't ask why :)

Can't seem to install glibc-common because rpmlib is missing. There does not
seem to be anything providing rpmlib.

rpm -Uvh  pam-0.75-32.i386.rpm  passwd-0.67-1.i386.rpm db3-3.3.11-6.i386.rpm 
glib2-2.0.1-2.i386.rpm  libuser-0.50.2-1.i386.rpm  openssl-0.9.6b-32.7.i386.rpm
 bind-9.2.1-1.7x.2.i386.rpm  bind-utils-9.2.1-1.7x.2.i386.rpm 
cyrus-sasl-md5-1.5.24-25.i386.rpm  openldap-2.0.27-2.7.3.i386.rpm 
glibc-2.2.5-43.i386.rpm  rpm-4.0.4-7x.18.i386.rpm 
glibc-common-2.2.5-43.i386.rpm  perl-5.6.1-34.99.6.i386.rpm

error: failed dependencies:
  rpmlib(PartialHardlinkSets) <= 4.0.4-1 is needed by glibc-common-2.2.5-43

Current versions are:

Of course there is, rpm itself.
As it suggests, you need at least rpm 4.0.4 installed before you do the upgrade.
Comment 2 Toni Willberg 2003-07-30 07:38:14 EDT
Well, there is no way to install latest RedHat 7.3 Updates rpm before
glibc-common is installed. You know this.

Actually, I found a workaround solution:

Basicly, one just needs to install an _unofficial_ rpm and popt from:

And "Worksforme" is not the right answer for this kind of reports. Try to be
more polite towards other people next time, thank you.
