I have a server here that is running SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (i586) patch level 1. I am trying to install Net-SNMP on the machine. I downloaded the net-snmp-5.4.2.1-8.2.i586.rpm file and tried to install it:

ourserver1:~ # rpm -i net-snmp-5.4.2.1-8.2.i586.rpm
warning: net-snmp-5.4.2.1-8.2.i586.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 034e6912
error: Failed dependencies:
        perl-SNMP = 5.4.2.1 is needed by net-snmp-5.4.2.1-8.2.i586

So then I downloaded perl-SNMP-5.4.2.1-8.2.i586.rpm and tried to install it:

ourserver1:~ # rpm -i perl-SNMP-5.4.2.1-8.2.i586.rpm
warning: perl-SNMP-5.4.2.1-8.2.i586.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 034e6912
error: Failed dependencies:
        net-snmp = 5.4.2.1 is needed by perl-SNMP-5.4.2.1-8.2.i586

Why does each one depend on the other? How do I get Net-SNMP installed on this machine?

Install both at the same time.

rpm -Uvh net-snmp-5.4.2.1-8.2.i586.rpm perl-SNMP-5.4.2.1-8.2.i586.rpm
