samba-*2.0.7-4.i386.rpm dependency problems
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
On a newly installed 6.2 system with samba components installed from the
CD, I tried to install your samba-*2.0.7-4.i386.rpm packages (downloaded
from your server).
When I do rpm -Fvh * (on each of the pieces), I get error messages about
missing dependencies referring to samba-*2.0.7 -- yet there is no 2.0.7 on
your server. Further, the common component complains about dependencies
for 2.0.6-9 needing 2.0.6 !!
If I specify --nodeps it appears to install with no other errors. I
haven't actually tried to use it yet...
Is this a bug, or a misunderstanding on my part? Is the result of
overriding the dependecy check going to be a functional samba?

You need to install all the RPMs in the same transaction,
i.e. rpm -Uvh samba-client-2.0.7-4.i386.rpm samba-common-2.0.7-4.i386.rpm
Hmmm. That is not at all obvious from the webpage announcing the upgrade...
It says (and I quote):
For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:
rpm -Fvh [filename]
where filename is the name of the RPM.
In other words, it explicitly states the exact opposite of what I am supposed
Thanks for the response,
