Re: Question about Summersoft RPMS

The alternative I worked out is this:

# When installing RH9, leave out mod_perl, mod_php and mod_python.
# If RH9 is already installed, uninstall those packages.
# Download apt-get, install it and update its database
rpm -ivh apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr1.i386.rpm
apt-get update
# Get and install cpanflute2
apt-get install perl-RPM-Specfile
# Get the 2.38 version of Config-IniFiles, build and install
wget http://www.cpan.org/authors/W/WA/WADG/Config-IniFiles-2.38.tar.gz
cpanflute2 --buildall Config-IniFiles-2.38.tar.gz
rpm -Uvh perl-Config-IniFiles-2.38-8.i386.rpm
# Fix another dependency problem with subversion-tools
apt-get install perl-CGI
# Download all RPMs except devel from summersoft
# Install the summersoft RPMs
rpm -Uvh *.rpm

Painless, no error messages and no --nodeps hack. Mind you, there was a
great deal of pain working out that short list, but it was worth it in the

Will the subversion-tools dependency on perl-CGI be fixed by the patch as
