Well I have installed redhat on half my hard drive. Slowly figuring this out. I keep trying to install rpm's and the installer continues to tell me I need a lib file. Is it normal to have to go looking for these files or did I not install correctly?
If you chose an option like "desktop" instead of "customized" or "expert" it may not have included "gcc" which is required for most packages. You should be able to install gcc using rpm. The other possibility is that the packages you are choosing after install do in fact need other libs which are not included with your distribution. You'll have to hunt them down to continue.
Thanks, I did use the custom install, thought I got it all but I was so nervous I was going to wipe out my windows partion I could have missed it. I will see if I can find the "gcc". I was missing to .lib for Apache.
