We have two RedHat 5.3 systems on which we need to install ENVI, a mapping graphics program.
ENVI needs libXp.so.6 which is included in the old

XFree86-libs-data-4.3.0-128.EL.x86_64.rpm
packages.
When we install these packages on the RH 5.3 systems, the console on the systems goes totally blank. On reboot we get a solid blue screen.
We need a work around for the RH system or from ITT for ENVI.
Thank you for any suggestions.

This is what I use for IDL (which is quite closely related to ENVI):

$ rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/lib/libXp.so.6
libXp-1.0.0-8.1.el5

You should be able to install it with yum, provided you have a RHN license. Otherwise build it from the source RPM.


Thanks. I did not know about the --whatprovides option.
