Did you previously install locally-built (by you) Owl RPMs on this system? > It seems like a dependency hell. :-( Could not figure out how can I > upgrade smoothly? If you simply used "make installworld" using our pre-built RPMs, the upgrade should have been smooth. If you build your own RPMs and try to cross a major change in this way (such as our update of OpenSSL or GCC), then, yes, you may get into dependency hell that you'd need to resolve on your own. Ways to resolve it _might_ be found in owl-dev list postings from the right time period; they generally involve multiple install/build/install steps. If you're not into developing Owl, then I suggest that you only upgrade using our pre-built RPMs. > On 4/3/12, cpb@....log2.net <cpb@....log2.net> wrote: > > You didn't include complete details of your starting point or the source of > > your RPMs in ~build/RPMS, Alexander
