hi peoples,

i can not get /scripts/easyapache to work.
i keep on getting error message that states, 'Your operating system's rpm update method (yum) was not able to locate the glibc package. This is an indication of an improper setup. You must correct this error before you can proceed.'

now, yum is not installed on this server. i have already tried up2date and rhl_register, have registered, but only for demo.

i have tried just about everything, can not get the thing to work.

any ideas, people?_ suggestions will help, thanks in advance.

go to the Mirror for your OS and download the glibc* packages if you do not need or want yum
could you please be more specific as to where the 'Mirror' for my OS is?
and, how to download the glibc packs.

server is RHE 3, yum is not installed.

You can't use yum with RHE v3. Go to: http://rpm.pbone.net/ and search for glibc package comptaible with your OS. glibc-2.3.2 should be good enough, unless you have more up-to-date version.

Go on, have a guess
If you're running RHE you need to have an RHN license to support it - it's as simple as that. If you don't have one you're going to have to learn how to compile all the OS apps yourself or use an rpm repositry. Having an OS vendor update mechanism in place is a requirement.

If you don't want to pay for the license to use RHE, you can relatively simply migrate the server over to CentOS, which is free.
