I'm wanting to update the version of linux on what is apparently a pretty damn old version of RedHat. I started playing with rpm but it seems that every library I try to update, needs some other library and I go in circles.
Any tips or advice? I only have remote access to the machine by a vpn. I'm not getting very far without some help on this.
Some system info: [root@localhost root]# cat /proc/version Linux version 2.4.7-10 (email@example.com) (gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.1 2.96-98)) #1 Thu Sep 6 17:27:27 EDT 2001 [root@localhost root]# cat /etc/redhat-release Red Hat Linux release 7.2 (Enigma) [root@localhost root]# uname -a Linux localhost.localdomain 2.4.7-10 #1 Thu Sep 6 17:27:27 EDT 2001 i686 unknown
Agreed. Really got nowhere messing with rpm, so for the heck of it I started forcing some updates to see how far I could get it, but, as would be expected, that wasn't very successful. Just not worthwhile continuing to mess with at this point.
