    Default failed dependency on a install from Fedora site

    Trying to install Hercules (mainframe emulator) from http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...c11.x86_64.rpm

    but encountered

    Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: warning: /home/stan/Desktop/hercules-3.06-2.fc11.x86_64.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 signature: NOKEY, key ID d22e77f2
    error: Failed dependencies:
    rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1 is needed by hercules-3.06-2.fc11.x86_64

    I did manage to install this some months ago on a 32 bit version of openSUSE...

    Not sure how to resolve this dependency - cannot find anything called 'rpmlib'.

    How can I satisfy the dependency ?

    oops - meant 'cannot find FileDigests'.

    Is this the 3.06 version ? I got another reponse yesterday confirming that it may be a very old version.

    Find out yourself.

    If you actually have a look at the version, you know _exactly_ how old it is.

    And even then, who cares?

    It's a _compatible_ version you will be able to install easily instead of trying to brutally "hammer" something completely unsuitable into your system (and most like rendering it FUBAR).

    Thank you for your advice.

    After I asked the question, I did look at the release that is imbedded in the name.

    My apologies - I must fall into your 90 percentile.

    Just wait a few minutes/hours, just checked that thing into my OBS repo with sources from SVN (last commit from 20090902).

    Index of /repositories/home://Akoellh/openSUSE_11.1_Update

    And BTW:

    NEVER use packages from other distributions on a productive system (especially not from a much more recent or much older version of that other distro, that's where you get your error from, F11 uses rpm 4.6, no way in hell you can install that on 11.1 with rpm 4.4).

    Not sure I understand what you are saying in your first line.

    i think he is saying that he packaged the latest into that link he gave you so you can install it

    Yes, it does sound like that doesn't it ?
