My box is in desperate need of update, but can't:

Error: Missing Dependency: libpq.so.4 is needed by package apr-util
Note the:

Code:
Error: Missing Dependency: libpq.so.4 is needed by package apr-util
I add apr-util and libpq.so.4 both to the /etc/yum.conf exclude line - no use. For whatever reason it still insists that I have them.

To make matters worse, I actually have libpq.so.4 installed:

Code:
[email protected] [/etc]# locate libpq.so | while read line; do ls -l $line; done
lrwxrwxrwx 1 admin21 admin21 12 Jan 27  2009 /home/admin21/usr/lib/libpq.so.3 -> libpq.so.3.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 Aug 13 00:24 /usr/lib/libpq.so.4 -> libpq.so.4.1*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 131864 Jan 12  2008 /usr/lib/libpq.so.4.1*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 Jan  2  2009 /usr/lib64/libpq.so.4 -> libpq.so.4.1*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 142824 Jan 12  2008 /usr/lib64/libpq.so.4.1*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 134042 Sep 12  2007 /usr/local/cpanel/lib64/libpq.so.3*
[email protected] [/etc]#
Any ideas? I'm at a complete loss. I've googled, I've searched the forums here - nothing.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I have run into this issue before, and there is an article listed below that should walk you through fixing the problem. Please give it a try and let me know if you have any questions or issues.

libpq.so.4 « Short hints about Linux

Thank you,
Matthew Curry
Thanks for that, I saw that post when trying to work through this problem. That doesn't really solve the problem for me. Uninstalling postgres won't make it where apr-util doesn't need libpq.so.4 - and libpq.so.4 is installed already anyway.

What I need is a way for libpq.so.4 to be "registered" as installed.

You're going to love this.

I go to submit a ticket, I select the option that I don't have a cpanel account. It recognizes my email as having an account and sends me to the login anyway. It doesn't recognize my login, so I ask for a password reset.

Get the email, click the link, fill in the password twice (email is already filled in), it takes the change and sends me to the login. It still doesn't recognize my login.

So, where can I submit a ticket outside of your ticket system to get my login fixed? ;-D

Hello,


Sorry to hear that, you can still submit it at the bottom of the page, but to get the login issue resolved you would have to email customer support at [email protected], also have you "If you have a cPanel Store account but have not yet used the cPanel Customer Portal, please login to your store account to automatically create a Customer Portal Account. "


Please let me know if that answers your questions.


Thank you,
Matthew Curry
