Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 176628
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:19 EST
Description of problem:
I can't install glibc-common on my fedora core 4 i386 computer because the
package says it requires glibc-common!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have only tried this on one machine. Maybe I got a lemon.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download package from rpmfind.net at address
2.Run file to add to the system
3.Dialog appears saying glibc-common is required for installation
Oops! See #3 above.
That's user error. glibc-common must be installed or upgraded always together
with the corresponding glibc (and other subpackages), in one transaction.
If you use some package managment application, such as yum, it will handle
it automatically for you, otherwise you need to take care of satisfying the
dependencies on your own.
