Re: Oops...



I solved the problem by running rpm on the files from original 6.1 CD for
XFree86 and the associated libraries.

But, thanks for the help with --force. Thank goodness I don't have to
uninstall this stuff.

Hi Karl!

I got the same Problem a few days ago. My solution was a

rpm -ivh glibc-2.2-12.i386.rpm glibc-common-2.2-12.i386.rpm

The Problem with --force is that you will never be able to make
a clean uninstall, because you are breaking depdencies.

regards

Alex
