Hi Paul,

Yes sorry I retyped the command just for the email and messed it up.

Heres what I did do.

[root d6173 alastair]# history | grep nodeps
  412  rpm -e --nodeps python-2.4.3-8.FC4
  503  history | grep nodeps
[root d6173 alastair]# /usr/bin/python
Python 2.4.1 (#2, May  3 2005, 17:14:18)
[GCC 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.



 

The python-2.4.3-8.FC4.i386.rpm would have no effect at all. "rpm -e"
takes a package name as an argument, not a filename. You already gave
the package name straight after the "--nodeps"

The --force shouldn't be needed here, since there shouldn't be any
conflicts. Try to avoid using --nodeps and --force unless really needed.

If you run /usr/bin/python, does it claim to be python 2.4.1 or python
2.4.3?

[root d6173 alastair]# /usr/bin/python
Python 2.4.1 (#2, May  3 2005, 17:14:18)
[GCC 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)] on linux2

Paul.


Best regards and thanks,

Alastair
