How-to for installing Rdiff on RH7.2 system?
Wed, 23 Jan 2002 13:56:56 -0500
Has anyone installed Rdiff on a RedHat7.2 system? As I understand it RedHat
needed to stay with the 1.5 version of Python and upgrading to a newer
version will break some things on a RedHat7.2 system.
I can install python2.2 from the source doing the usual "./configure, make,
make install" dance, however when I go to install Rdiff I get failed
dependencies that it cannot find a python version >=2.2 and Librsync. When
I try to install Librsync I again get dependency errors. Can anyone point
me to a README or How-to to get this installed? I know I can install
Python2.2 along side version 1.5 but I am unsure as to the hard links and
or sym links that need to be done so that Rdiff is satisfied.
Would installing Rdiff from src alleviate any dependency problems? If it
will I would be willing to install Python, Librsync and Rdiff from sources.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
