Subject: Re: Upgrading to current gives dependency problem after
 kernel upgrade and boot

Thanks Chris for an elaborative reply. Appreciate it. Same to Solar,

However, whenever I tried with

1. rpm -Uvh option, I get:
# rpm -Uvh ~build/RPMS/*.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
	perl(Crypt::PasswdMD5) is needed by syslinux-perl-4.04-owl2
	perl(Digest::SHA1) is needed by syslinux-perl-4.04-owl2

2. And when I try to upgrade userland by the book (as stated in the
wiki, make installworld), I get:

Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:groff-doc              ########################################### [100%]
21:32:08: Skipping owl-cdrom
21:32:08: Removing temporary files
21:32:08: Failed to install: lftp
traceroute
make: *** [installworld] Error 1

3. When I try to manually upgrade lftp, I get:

# rpm -Uvh ~build/RPMS/lftp-4.1.1-owl1.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
	libcrypto.so.10()(64bit) is needed by lftp-4.1.1-owl1
	libssl.so.10()(64bit) is needed by lftp-4.1.1-owl1

It seems like a dependency hell. :-( Could not figure out how can I
upgrade smoothly?
