I have an unusual problem with RPM which is freaking me out a little -
for some new RPMs, it seems the version of RPM that I have installed is
*too new* to use with them. This is (or was when I got it a week ago) a
stock RH 6.2 box. I'm trying to upgrade to gtk+-1.2.8 to get the GIMP
1.1.20 compiling, and I'm getting the fillowing messages:
[root at euclid PACKAGES]# rpm -q rpm
[root at euclid PACKAGES]# rpm -Uvh
only packages with major numbers <= 3 are supported by this version of
error: gtk+-1.2.8-7.i386.rpm cannot be installed
Has anyone seen this before, and is there an alternative to installing
an older version of RPM, or compiling from source? Plus, does anyone
know what package provides glib.m4?
Thanks a lot,
Software engineer, Informix Dublin.
