                   Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis:          Update for gnorpm to work with rpm-4.0.2
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2001:034-04
Issue date:        2001-03-26
Updated on:        2001-03-28
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          gnorpm rpm
Cross references:

1. Topic:

Updated package for gnorpm to use rpm-4.0.2 libraries.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 6.2 - alpha, i386
Red Hat Linux 7.0 - alpha, i386

3. Problem description:

In the errata for rpm-4.0.2, there is a new shared library librpmio.so that contains symbols that used to be in librpm.so. Executables that linked against the shared librpm.so need to be relinked with the new librpmio shared library.

If you have upgraded to rpm-4.0.2 on Red Hat 6.x, then you should upgrade gnorpm from this errata as well.

4. Solution:

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directly *only* contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.
