Description Need Real Name 2000-10-10 16:35:18 EDT
I attempted to update the openssh package using the update issued on 
10/5/00 (RHBA-2000:076-03). Any order of installation results in an 
unresolvable dependency error. I am working on a clean RH Linux 7.0 

rpm -qa | grep openssh shows:


rpm -Fvh openssh-2.2.0p1-5.i386.rpm gives me:
error: failed dependencies:
   openssh = 2.1.1p4 is needed by openssh-askpass-2.1.1p4-1
   openssh = 2.1.1p4 is needed by openssh-askpass-gnome-2.1.1p4-1
   openssh = 2.1.1p4 is needed by openssh-clients-2.1.1p4-1
   openssh = 2.1.1p4 is needed by openssh-server-2.1.1p4-1

The other openssh-xxx-2.2.0p1-5 packages all ask for openssh-2.2.0p1-5

I am pretty much a Linux newbie so hopefully I am not wasting your time by 
doing something wrong!

I removed the openssh packages installed under RH 7.0 and then reinstalled the 
updates and everything is seemed to work correctly. -RH

do "rpm -Fvh openssh-*" so RPM knows that you want to upgrade ALL openssh 
packages and then there should be now dependency problems as rpm knows that all 
dependencies will be fulfilled after the rpm run.
