Full Version: Remove Apache

Hello,

I'm wanting to install the newest version of apache. And I don't like the the apache that came with redhat, it's install locations, etc... So I'm trying to remove Apache from the Packages section in KDE. But RH won't let me, it says: You have selected a package for removal that is depended upon by necessary system package... System Package: redhat-config-packages 712 kilobytes.

I am only selecting Web Server!!

Hmm... Every single time I post a question somewhere I figure the answer out... Wierd...

Here' what I did:

[root@thor root]# rpm -e apache
error: package apache is not installed
[root@thor root]# rpm -e httpd
error: Failed dependencies:
httpd-mmn = 20020628 is needed by (installed) mod_perl-1.99_05-3

[root@thor root]# rpm -qa | less

[root@thor root]#

And now it should be gone, right?

why don't u get the latest version of apache and enter the commad
rpm -Uvh apache-xxxxx
this will upgrade ur installed apache package.no need to uninstall them.
any way if u still want to remove apache u can try gnome-package manager also.it sometimes works better than the command rmp -e.

because s/he didn't like the default install locations that Redhat uses. This could be easily changed by you or me, but other people may way to install fresh and define the prefix's themselves.
