Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to openacs-apache-rpms

Posted by Jonathan Marsden on
The binary RPMs you are trying to install on RH 7.0 were almost
certainly created under (and intended for) Red Hat 6.2.

Some libraries were changed or updated between RH 6.x and 7.x, hence
the issues you are encountering.

I suggest the simplest way to solve this could be to just download the
*source* RPMs for the packages and rebuild them on your own machine,

    rpm --rebuild somepackagename-x.y.src.rpm

The packages should then link against readline 4, for example, since
that is what you (probably) have on your machine.

Another approach is to consider ditching Apache+mod_aolserver in
favour of running aolserver... see my recent new post on this bboard
about some RPMs
for this kind of setup I am developing and need testers for 😊

Chasing down older library RPMs so you can run binary RPMs build for
RH 6.2 under RH 7.x may not be the most productive way to spend your
time, IMO.
