(Fedore Core 4.)


After upgrading using rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force *.rpm
/usr/lib/ is replaced with /usr/lib/

You might try;

ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/  or
ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

If this will work I do not know.


For the umpteenth time: using "--nodeps" and/or "--force" is likely to break your system, as the OP has found out. RPM's dependencies are there for a reason and if you deliberately ignore them, don't be surprised when other things break.

The correct fix for this problem is to install the MySQL4 compatibility libraries, which include There is a mysqlclient14 package in rawhide for this purpose. You could probably rebuild the SRPM on FC4 and install that to fix this problem.

To unsubscribe:

I had already done this but was indeed afarid I was breaking something.
rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force postfix*.rpm

So I installed rawhide and then potfix with,

rpm -i postfix*.rpm

And there are no error messages and postfix works fine!

I don't have to re-install MySQL then Postfix.  Do I ?
