RE: Download RPM for Redhat, install on Redhat 6.2

RedHat 6.2 uses an older version of RPM (RedhatPackageManager). To find your
version, run "rpm -v", I guess you'll have 3.x. Packages created with a
newer version of RPM can only be installed with the newer version.

You can try to upgrade to a newer version of RPM (4.0.2 as of RH7.1), or
else you'll probably have to build openldap from the sources (unless you
find an older openldap.rpm...)
Of course, you can always install RH7.1 :-)

Hi, all:

I downlaod OpenLDAP 2.0.11 openldap-server RPM package
from Redhat site and try to install it on Redhat 6.2,
I got following error:

[root@swlinux /tmp]# rpm -i openldap-2.0.11-8.i386.rpm

only packages with major numbers <= 3 are supported by
this version of RPM
error: openldap-2.0.11-8.i386.rpm cannot be installed
