msa1500flash rpm install problem with Linux SUSE 10

Has anyone attempted to load the rpm that is provided for firmware update of the MSA1000
using LINUX SUSE 10 on a DL380?


The rpm is not compatible with SUSE 10 library files.

>>> The rpm is not compatible with SUSE 10 library files.

I'm not sure about that, first of all, you should ensure that the libraries required are on disk, that is, the rpm package that includes that libraries are installed. You must have these libraries installed:

libart_lgpl.so.2()(64bit) is needed by msa1500flash-5.20-7.x86_64
libgnome.so.32()(64bit) is needed by msa1500flash-5.20-7.x86_64
libgnomesupport.so.0()(64bit) is needed by msa1500flash-5.20-7.x86_64
libgnomeui.so.32()(64bit) is needed by msa1500flash-5.20-7.x86_64

I should have made this clear.

SUSE 10 has newer versions of the required libraries.

I don't believe that I should need to install olded versions.

SUSE 10

These are two of the new files:
gnome/lib/libgnome-2.so.0
gnome/lib/libgnomeui.so.32


The download indicated that the rpm supprted SUSE 10. I've checked the packages in question. The supplied rpm has an older version.

The files in question are on my SUSE 9 Server installation.

Sometimes, "compat" packages are distributed that includes old libraries. Another option is to install the rpm without checkin the dependencies, and crate symbolic links to the newer libraries, with the name of the expected file.

I was able to install with --nodeps but the
shared libraries were still worng. Tried the link this did not help.

Compat was looked into as well.

My next try will be to get the needed libraries from SUSE 9.

Problem resolved.

I was using an early release of SUSE10 SP1.

The proper libraries are in SUSE 10 without SP1 installed.
