Installing MaxDB WEB DBM on RH Fedora core 2

Hell all

I try to install maxdb-web-7.5.0.23-1.i386.rpm

First I was because maxdb-callif-7.5.0.23-1.i386.rpm

was needed, so I installed that

Now I get this error:

rpm -Uvh maxdb-web-7.5.0.23-1.i386.rpm

Preparing... ########################################### [100%]

/usr/spool has to be a link to ../var/spool

error: %pre(maxdb-web-7.5.0.23-1) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping maxdb-web-7.5.0.23-1

What can I do now ?

Best regards

    Hello,

    You must move or remove the directory /var/spool

    and then retry the installation. The installation

    requires that this directory be a link. It wants to

    create the link.

    Regards,
