I'm not sure if this belongs in unsupported or not, but it didn't quite fit anywhere else...

I'm trying to set up an IBM Http server (I know it's a hybrid of Apache, I need it for testing on a WebSphere project)... I get to the part where the installer tries to add gskit (gsk7bas-7.0-3.20.i386.rpm) and the installer fails 100% of the time. To try and track down the issue, I tried to manually install gskit outside of the IBM installer via:
Code:

rpm -iH gsk7bas-7.0-3.20.i386.rpm

which results in the following dependencies:
Code:

Anyone know any work-arounds so I can get past this part? All the libraries are there, but are a good bit "newer" than the ones IBM wants. Any environment variables I can set that would "trick" it into installing? Oh, using --nodeps rpm argument still results in the library not getting installed for some reason. RPM says it's there, but the defaults paths in the RPM don't get created and there are no files found that would exist on a RedHat machine or some other "supported" distro. Any solutions?

Thanks in advance!

a dirty trick which has sometimes worked for me is just using symlinks to the new (current) libs; sth like
Code:
ln -sf current-lib.so.5 oldlib.so.1
be careful and test thouroughly1
GOOD LUCK!

Can't hurt anything to at least try that. Thanks!

Creating symlinks didn't help with RPM... so, I took a slightly different approach that did work:

I ignored dependencies and installed the RPM to make an entry in RPM database (for the IHS installer)
Code:

rpm -iH gsk7bas-7.0-3.20.i386.rpm --nodeps

I then RPM2TARGZ'd the rpm file
Then untarred the file in '/' to put the binaries in /usr/local/ibm where they are expected
Added the lib folder of gskit to LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Ran the IHS installer, and it worked as expected.

So, at least I have a work-around and it seems to run just fine!

Thanks again!
