14.1.11. ELDK 2.x Installation Aborts

Question:
I tried to install ELDK version 2.x on a SuSE 8.2 / SuSE 9 / RedHat-9 Linux host but failed - it terminated without installing any packages. Why?

Answer:
Newer Linux distributions use libraries that are incompatible to those used by the ELDK's installation tools. This problem was fixed in later releases of the ELDK (version 3.0 and later). It is therefore recommended to use a more recent version of the ELDK. If you really want to install an old version, the following back-port is available:

Please download the file ftp://ftp.denx.de/pub/tmp/ELDK-update-2.2.0.tar.bz2

Then change into the source tree with the ELDK files and perform the following operations:
bash$ rm RPMS/rpm-4.0.3-1.03b_2.i386.rpm \
    RPMS/rpm-build-4.0.3-1.03b_2.i386.rpm \
    RPMS/rpm-devel-4.0.3-1.03b_2.i386.rpm \
    tools/usr/lib/rpm/rpmpopt-4.0.3
bash$ tar jxf /tmp/ELDK-update-2.2.0.tar.bz2
Then build the ISO image as documented, and try again.
