Description amartoq 1999-06-14 03:23:12 UTC
I try to upgrade, following the instructions:

/tmp/update/]# rpm -Uvh egcs-c++-1.1.2-13.sparc.rpm
error: file /usr/lib/libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1-2.9.0.so from
install of egcs-c++-1.1.2-13 conflicts with file from
package libstdc++-2.9.0-12

I've also tryed to install egcs-c++ without libstdc++, but
it claims that needs it.

I compared both file (the included in libstdc++ and
egcs-c++) and they differ. May you must make an upgrade to
libstdc++ too.

My machine is a sparcstation 4. I hope that this upgrade of
egcs an kernel make more stable X, as far I read...

This is an rpm problem: upgrade to rpm-3.0.1 from ftp.rpm.org
to fix.

Comment 2 amartoq 1999-06-14 19:44:59 UTC
I've upgraded to rpm-3.0.1-12.6.0 and appears the same error. I guess
it's a missbuilded egcs-c++-.rpm error.

Or libstdc++ needs un upgrade too. I've checked the file included in
the 6.0 libstdc++ and egcs-c++ rpms, and they don't differ. They are
the same.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-21 13:00:59 UTC
Both egcs-c++ and libstdc++ -- because they share the file
libstdc++*.so -- must be installed at the same time in order to
succeed. If both packages are installed by rpm-3.0-6.0, then the file
libstdc++*.so will show up as "missing" (and the file will not be
present in /usr/lib).

Please try and upgrade with both package names on the same command

upgrading egcs and libstdc++ at the same time cures the problem.
