Description agyorgi 2000-08-05 01:51:17 EDT
Is there a trick that I am missing when upgrading any package from Raw Hide onto a system running Red Hat
Linux 6.1? RPM keeps complaining that my rpm database only supports rpm mackages w/ major numbers <= 3.0.
Do I have to upgrade to Red Hat 6.2 in order to install any RPM package from Raw Hide?

BTW: On upgrading, I use the following command:

                                          rpm -Uvh <package-name>

Any feedback would be appreciated. 

Thanks. I love Red Hat Linux!

Those Rawhide RPMs and Redhat 6.1 are not binary compatible because
Rawhide has moved to glibc 2.2.

If you want to use Rawhide RPMs, you have to
 1) get RPM 3.0.5 (ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/test) or RPM 4.0
 2) rebuild packages you want from Rawhide SRPMS (rpm --rebuild).
