Error reinstalling eDirectory on SLES 10: Installing NDSserv… Unable to install


Error received when I was reinstalling eDirectory on SLES 10:

Installing NDSserv… Unable to install NDSserv-8-7-3-37.i386.rpm, exiting

To fix this error: 

1) Rename the /usr/lib/nds-modules directory /usr/lib/nds-modules.old:

mv /usr/lib/nds-modules /usr/lib/nds-modules.bad
 
2) re-run  ./nds-install
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
3) copy original /usr/lib/nds-modules.old files back to /usr/lib/nds-modules after installation
completes:

cp /usr/lib/nds-modules.bad/* /usr/lib/nds-modules/

    Thank you for your solution, but it didn’t work for me. 😦

    Installing ntls … done
    Installing NDSserv … Unable to install /mnt/Linux/setup/NDSserv-8.7.3-37.i386.rpm , Exiting…

    Do you have other advice?

    al-

    try renaming /etc/nds.conf and /var/nds, then re-reun the installation.

    or manually force the .rpm to install:
    rpm -Uvh NDSserv* –force

    As a last resort:
