Subject:  Re: Installing kernel sources or C headers

Thank you both for your replies.  I now have apache from the RPM 
installed and running.  However when I go to install php I get the 
following errors.

localhost!root:~# rpm -i apache-php-4.4.2-owl_add1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by apache-php-4.4.2-owl_add1

localhost!root:~# rpm -i php-4.4.2-owl_add1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
         mm is needed by php-4.4.2-owl_add1 is needed by php-4.4.2-owl_add1

When I installed apache I did a rpm -i apache-1.3.34-owl_add1.i386.rpm

not knowing a lot about linux or rpm, just enough to be dangerous, I'm 
sure I'm just screwing something up.

Thanks again in advance for any help.
