This is not a strict porting question really, but just wanted to check with
others whether there might be a better way of doing this...
I managed to get the RPM package of postgresql for RedHat installed onto
Caldera's 2.2 distro. I had to do a few guessing to resolve some *real*
dependency problems by downloading other RPMs for missing programs and
libraries, but there were several depencies that were *misleading*. For
example, I had the library "libc.so.6", but kpackage/rpm reported it as
missing. What I ended up doing is just ignoring the depencies that were
*false*. My guess is that RPMs are looking in the RPM database for specific
RPM groups for where the packages or files are reported as being installed;
hence, an RPM destined for a Redhat distro may have a different
database groupings compared to groupings for a Caldera distro.
I did, however, had to install "chkconfig" since my Caldera distribution did
not have it and the libraries libtermcap and libcrypt.
Now things mostly work except I am running into a problem with libcrypt calling
a routine that is in another shared library that does exist... and I am trying
to trace what is going on. I thought I would take a break and ask for some
I am thinking that I should probably installed the source version, but I am not
sure how many hassles that will be.
Any further insights?
