Re: Question about Summersoft RPMS

Someone sent me a question about the Summersoft RPMS. Unfortunately I was
hurried and accidentally (first time in *ages*!) deleted some mail I
didn't intend to.

He asked about the depedencies.

Basically, even though RedHat distributes an apache 2.0.40, it is not
binary compatable with later releases. Therefore, whoever installs my
httpd-2.0.47 packages will have to do one of three things:

1. Recompile all packages that depend on the httpd package, or
2. Use the --nodeps option when they install my httpd package, realizing
that any packages installed that depend on the httpd package may not work
correctly, or
3. Erase all the RPMs that depend on the httpd package before installing
my package.

Another issue is the subversion-tools package that requires the PERL
Config::Ini package. Up through 0.25.0 I've just installed with the
--nodeps option. In 0.26.0 a nice person sent me a patch that gets rid of
that problem.

Hopefully this answers the questions that the person sent me and hopefully
he will see it.
