    Try downloading it again. I don't have rpm on slackware so all I can do is bust the packages and look at the contents.

    ok, getting now...

    Is the souce code for Mandrake, SuSE and Redhat different / compatible ? I notced they have 3 different source code rpms. One for mandrake, another for suse, and a 3rd for 2.4.x.

    Since I'm running RH should I be using the 2.4.x or would it make no difference ?

    Get this one, "slmdm-2.03-01.src.rpm", it seems to be the most generic one available, you also might want to grab any redhat ones you see but leave the mandrake ones as they probably won't be compatable with a red hat kernel.

    Yep that's the one I've started trying to use, however the bloody thing STILL won't rebuild for me. I've got no idea what I'm doing wrong, everything looks just fine to me.

    It's screen capture time ! What am I doing wrong ??? I can't pick it.

    I use rh71 ..
    to install a rpm
    su
    password

    rpm -ivh (filenamecasesensitive)

    now if you com across active libs you can do this:

    rpm -ivh -nodeps (filenamecasesensitive)

    that will allow you to install the rpm even if there are dependancy issues.

    now to see if you actually have it installed and where it is :

    updatedb
    locate (filename)

    in this case do not type the whole file name as it is in the rpm instead jsut use a protion of the file.. example: i just installed:

    libssl.s0.0.9.6.rpm and i wanna see where it installed to i would type :

    locate libssl | less

    this will tell me where it is.. and what version it is..
    some of your results will be really really long that is why we pipe it with less.

    anyways i hope this helps..

    You might be surprised....doing --rebuild is enough to throw an error because the correct syntax is -rebuild
    one dash is correct, two dashes will give an error, remember, case sensitive is not just about capitals, its about matching everything.

    if you
    # updatedb
    (this will update the locate command)
    then
    # locate slmdm | less
    ( this will find all instances of the slmdm and show the version)

    you will see weather or not you have it installed..
    the file not found error is irrelivanT (I can see from ur screen shot that you DO have it) if you do not have the rpm installed.
    -unfortunatly i am @ work and do not have a linux box available to check this out on i will see when i get home.

    if you think that the rpm is corrupt do this (and you think you installed it):

    rpm -e (filename)

    if you do a locate and find that you have a earlier version of slmdm then upgrade it

    rpm -Uvh (filename)

    sorry if i was not clear earlier.
