    dependencies

    RH 7.1

    I try to uograde samba rpm to the latest version 2.2.8 (this one is for 7.3), when I issue rpm -Uvh < samba > it gives me the following:
    error: failed dependencies:
    libcups.so.2 is needed by samba-2.2.8-1
    Is there any way to circumvent this or should I upgrade the OS to 7.3
    Thank you.

    Re:dependencies

    You could use the --nodeps option but that wouldn't be a good idea here as it probably really needs libcubs. RHN just realeased the latest version of Samba that fixed a serious exploit. Try running up2date and upgrading it through that.

    Is libcups installed? Maybe get the libcups rpm and put it in the same directory as the samba one and issue an rpm -Uvh *.rpm.

    upgrade cups or install the latest cups libraries or relavent cups libraries. Us rpmfind to find an rpm that has that file in it.
