Missing xorg-x11-deprecated-libs from the server

I need help. The server showed that the file has been installed. I tried using up2date -uf to update the file, but it tell me that All packages are currently up to date.

How can I find this file and reinstall it on my Linux server (RHAS 4.0)??

Thanks,

Jorge

Re: Missing xorg-x11-deprecated-libs from the server

Then the package is already installed. Verify with

rpm -qa | grep xorg

To identify the files in the package run

rpm -qil xorg-x11-deprecated-libs

Shalom Jorge,

It may be prudent in this instance to rpm -e the rpm and reinstall using the original install media.

Re: Missing xorg-x11-deprecated-libs from the server

After I ran the command; rpm -qil and found that the two servers displayed different output. First output is on the working server. I also displayed the links for this particular file as well.

I can't remove xorg-x11-deprecated-libs due to dependencies.

Please advice.

Thanks,
