Help needed with RPMs and SNMP
- View SourceGood Morning:
I am fighting with a bit of a problem here. I am trying to install
the ucd-snmp-utils so that I can get the snmpwalk command running to
be able to do smnp monitoring of my switches etc. as the rpm is
installing it keeps asking for other libraries :
When I try to search for these RPMS, I cant find them, Ive tried pbone
I am beginning to get the picture that I'm missing something or doing
something wrong here, but I don't know linux enough to be able to
track it down.
I have RHN setup and I have tried up2date to update the system too,
and it does'nt find anything. It returns some sort of an error saying
"invalid group id server-cfg.
If somebody could help me it would be greatly appreciated, I need to
get this system running

made for your particular version of Red Hat Linux. Else you would run
into endless troubles with package dependencies.

Only libcrypto.so.1, 2 and 4 are included in RHL9 and 0,1,2 in RHL8.0.

with RPM 4.1 already.

usually they are the wrong approach to problems with RPM packages. You
should be able to find everything on your installation CDs, Red Hat
Network or your favourite FTP/HTTP mirror of Red Hat Linux. It's very
useful to install the rpmdb-redhat package and query it with "rpm
--redhatprovides ...". When the package is installed, rpm also
suggests which packages are missing. Together with option --aid, rpm
would add missing packages automatically and install them from the

head I can't suggest any solution. Deleting your machine's profile at
RHN and /etc/sysconfig/rhn and re-registering should fix it as a last
resort. Switching from up2date to Yum would be another solution. Such
extra packages for Red Hat Linux can be downloaded here:
