I need to install OpenAFS client on RHEL4.  When installation started I 
get failure because:  
# rpm -Uvh openafs*rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        libncurses.so.5 is needed by openafs-1.4.0-rhel4.1.i386
        kernel-hugemem = 2.6.9-5.EL is needed by 
The first dependency is met since
# rpm -qa | grep -i ncurse
I found newer versions of ncurses.so.5 at rpmfind (ncurses-5.4-19.fc4).
So should I use rpm to remove the version I have & upgrade?  Or should I 
just force the openafs installation with the --nodeps option?
Second, which kernel RPM to get.
  openafs-kernel-hugemem-1.4.0-2.6.9_5.ELhugemem_1.i686.rpm    or  
The first is what the openafs-kernel-version.sh script recommends.
But the second is what I get from output of "uname -a" 
# uname -a
Linux .... 2.6.9-5.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Jan 5 19:29:47 EST 2005 x86_64 
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Please advise...
