I may be able to help. I'm assuming that you are upgrading a 2.0.*
kernel (use unname -a to find out the kernel details) to something
higher, otherwise you'll have to upgrade the libaries and alot more. See
http://www.linuxhq.com/ for more details if you are upgrading 1.*.* to
2.0.*. Check it out anyway it's very helpful.
*** IMPORTANT - Don't forget to backup - ***
If your just upgrading a 2.0.* kernel try the following, it worked for
Copy the new kernel in Archived form to /usr/src;
cp <new kernel> /usr/src
Unarchive the file;
tar -xvzf <new kernel>
Ensure symbolic links to the new kernel sources;
rm -rf linux
rm -rf asm
ln -s /usr/src/linux/include/linux/ linux
ln -s /usr/src/linux/include/asm-i386 asm
Change to your new linux subdirectory;
Ensure a clean source directory;
make config (or if you have X use: make xconfig)
Dependency and clean;
make depend ; make clean.
Compile kernel; (long wait)
Build any selected modules;
Install created modules;
Link modules directory to generic name;
rm -f current
ln -s <x.x.x> current (insert new kernel version in <x.x.>)
Make new lilo config;
And that's it. On dual boot systems (eg. loadlin) you need to copy over
the new kernel into wherever the old one booted from.
This is all from the HOWTO's see them for more information.
Good luck, Greg.

Mount your CD, cd to the directory where the RPMs are (in a term
window), then run the command "rpm -qp --depends <file>" where
<file> is the RPM file you want installed. It'll tell you what other
packages it needs. Then, you type "rpm -ihv" followed by all of the
filenames of the packages the main one needs, like this:
rpm -ihv filename.rpm filename2.rpm filename3.rpm
And so forth..

Err, I don't get it. You are trying to update rpm packages? Or just
updated the dependecies? You're upgrading something though?

- I am working at my HQ office which relies on 10 Windows NT4.0 servers with 128MB RAM, Pentium II 333 processors. I have been migrating most of the routers to switches this year, and run on Ethernet 100 Mbps LAN at HQ.
We have a few offices at remote areas that complain of poor support and reliable access to the HQ.
We are also concerned about security and need to update our intranet too.
Please help with suggestions and recommendation if I want to migrate to upgrade both hardware and software. The budget allowed is more than $100,000.
