5.0.2
Looks like 5.0.2 wasn't tested too thoroughly. On RH7.2, libtool script dies with a syntax error, configure doesn't perform all Makefile.in substitutions properly, etc.

He is right.
There are really rare cases where rpm packages
should depends on each other causing
a circular dependecy.

This is a packaging bug.

The best thing to do is to write your own rpm spec
file and compile it. 8)

the real solution:

rpm -Uvh Mesa-common-3.2.1-1rh61.i386.rpm Mesa-3.2.1-1rh61.i386.rpm

Oh, yes; timecop bitching again.

There's certainly a problem if common requires the base but since you will install them both, install them with the same command. This way all dependencies get filled.


Elementary... =)

circular RPM dependency problem solved
Don't use RPM, be a real man and compile from source.

circular rpm dependencies problem
Mesa-common-3.2.1-1rh61.i386.rpm requires Mesa-3.2.1-1rh61.i386.rpm to install... BUT
Mesa-3.2.1-1rh61.i386.rpm requires requires
Mesa-common-3.2.1-1rh61.i386.rpm to install.

solution:
rpm --install --nodeps Mesa-common-3.2.1-1rh61.i386.rpm
rpm --install Mesa-3.2.1-1rh61.i386.rpm
