I am trying to install mysql in red hat when I execute the command rpm -ivh "package-name" it is giving the following error:

error: Failed dependencies: is needed by MySQL-server-5.5.12-1.rhel5.i386<br>
        rtld(GNU_HASH) is needed by MySQL-server-5.5.12-1.rhel5.i386

What is the problem?

You are obviously not running RHEL 5. Install packages for the appropriate version of your distro.

You are missing a dependancy. Apparently you need libpcap, so install it first:

yum install libpcap

what is the relationship between packet analyser and DB? – satheesh.droid May 12 '11 at 11:17

The problem is that you do not have the package "glibc" installed.
