I'm building RPMs on my OpenSUSE 11.2 machine and uploading them to a CentOS 5 server. When trying to install, I get messages similar to:

error: Failed dependencies:
        rpmlib(PayloadIsLzma) <= 4.4.6-1 is needed by xxx.rpm

How can I fix this? Removing the LZMA compression for the RPMs when building is preferred, but I'd also work with installing an extra package on the CentOS server.


I finally found the answer here: http://www.cmake.org/pipermail/cmake/2010-March/035580.html

Looks like you need to modify the RPM spec file to include: _binary_payload w9.gzdio

  • Thanks! My problem is long gone through other means but it's good to know. – Robert Munteanu Dec 9 '10 at 8:21
