Description Need Real Name 2001-02-09 23:12:13 EST
I downloaded glibc-2.2-12.i686.rpm to update my glibc but the rpm -ivh
on that said:

[root@roundoff caa]# rpm -ivh glibc-2.2-12.i686.rpm 
error: failed dependencies:
        glibc-common = 2.2 is needed by glibc-2.2-12

I could only find a i386 version of the glibc-common on the refhat ftp site
at URL:


and when I tried the glibc-common-2.2-12.i386.rpm I got the error:

[root@roundoff caa]# rpm -ivh glibc-common-2.2-12.i386.rpm 
error: failed dependencies:
        glibc < 2.2-12 conflicts with glibc-common-2.2-12

What should I do???
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2001-03-21 08:03:04 EST
On i686 you should install glibc-2.2*.i686.rpm glibc-common-2.2*.i386.rpm
at the same time. That's why it has been split into 2 subpackages, glibc-common
contains files which are common to all subarches (i386/i686, sparc/sparcv9,
The errata page mentions that you have to run
rpm -Uvh glibc-2.2*.i686.rpm glibc-common-2.2*.i386.rpm
rpm -Fvh glibc-devel-2.2*.i386.rpm glibc-profile-2.2*.i386.rpm nscd-2.2*.i386.rpm
