# Installation of net-snmp - How do I resolve the dependencies?

I'm trying to install net-snmp on Redhat 2.6.9-55.ELsmp by following the instructions.

The problem is I get this:

grep: /usr/lib/libbeecrypt.la: No such file or directory
/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib/libbeecrypt.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: /usr/lib/libbeecrypt.la' is not a valid libtool archive
make[1]: *** [libnetsnmpmibs.la] Error 1


On the net-snmp website there is a page that explains that I may need to install a dev version of the beecrypt library.

So, I find a link to beecrypt-devel-4.1.2-10.1.1.el6.rf.i686.rpm and run:

rpm -ivh <path>\beecrypt-devel-4.1.2-10.1.1.el6.rf.i686.rpm


But that then comes up with a load of other missing dependencies. I found some info on the internet explaining that if I install rpmdb-redhat, then I can use the --aid option to automatically resolve the dependencies... but it doesn't seem to make the slightest bit of difference!

Am I missing something here? Do I really have to manually install each and every dependency? One of the dependencies is GLIBC_2.4, and I have no idea which .rpm file I need for my system.

@quanta: beecrypt-3.1.0-6 –  BG100 Jul 28 '11 at 16:41

Just install beecrypt-devel with corresponding version.
I'm trying... but there is loads of missing dependencies! Also, how do I know what version net-snmp` needs? –  BG100 Jul 28 '11 at 16:47
