This is probably not the right list for asking advice on this but might 
help someone trying to follow attempting what im trying to do here!

So here goes!

I am attempting to install Qt on the box that has a bare RULE install. 
To do this I *think* I need to also install GCC and GLIBC so working 
from RPMfind I choose gcc-3.2.2-5.i386.rpm and glibc-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm 
as they are both for RH9.

GLIBC installs fine.  GCC gives a dependency of glibc-devel >= 
2.2.90-12.  So RPMfind gives me glibc-devel-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm for RH 9 
which in turn gives a dependency for kernel-headers >=2.2.1 again 
RPMfind gives me kernel-2.4.20-30.9.i386.rpm which is a 13MB file for 
RH9 so im assuming this is an entire updated kernel? When this is 
installed glibc-devel still wants the kernel-headers >=2.2.1.

So question is where did I go wrong?  Im pretty sure using the kernel 
rpm is not correct but there does not appear to be a kernel-headers rpm 
for RH9. I tried kernel-headers-2.4.17-1.i586.rpm but this wants 
kernel=2.4.17 (which is obviously fair enough)

I have Qt running nicely on my Mandrake box but I was able to install 
the GCC and GLIBC from mdk files which sorted out the dependancies itself.

Best Wishes
