[vox-tech] Freshen glibc



Hi All,

I'm updating Red Hat 9.0 on my test box at home
with rh errata[1].  From the rh glibc page[2], it
looks like I only need 2 rpms:

   glibc-2.3.2-27.9.i686.rpm
   glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm

# rpm -Fvh --test glibc-2.3.2-27.9.i686.rpm

warning: glibc-2.3.2-27.9.i686.rpm: V3 DSA
signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e

error: Failed dependencies:

	glibc-common = 2.3.2-27.9 is needed by
glibc-2.3.2-27.9


# rpm -Fvh --test
glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm

warning: glibc-common-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm: V3 DSA
signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e

error: Failed dependencies:

	glibc-common = 2.3.2-11.9 is needed by
(installed) glibc-2.3.2-11.9


# rpm -qa |grep glibc

glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9

glibc-2.3.2-11.9

glibc-devel-2.3.2-11.9

glibc-kernheaders-2.4-8.10


The rh glibc page says to use 'rpm -Fvh
<rpmname>'.  Apparently I cannot freshen -common
because it is needed by the older (-11) version
of glibc.  But -11 will become obsolete as soon
as -27 is installed.

What should I do now?

Thanks,
Jim
