Remove conflicting packages

Sometimes it happens that after a update from a Technology Level or a Fix Pack the oslevel doesn't change. After I updated to TL11FP1 I had the following oslevel:

bash-3.00# oslevel -s
5300-10-01-0921

This is most of the times caused because one or more filesets is not updated (for whatever reason):

bash-3.00# instfix -i | grep ML
    All filesets for 5300-02_AIX_ML were found.
    All filesets for 5.3.0.0_AIX_ML were found.
    All filesets for 5300-01_AIX_ML were found.
    All filesets for 5300-03_AIX_ML were found.
    All filesets for 5300-04_AIX_ML were found.
    All filesets for 5300-05_AIX_ML were found.
    All filesets for 5300-06_AIX_ML were found.
    All filesets for 5300-07_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 5300-08_AIX_ML were found.
    All filesets for 5300-09_AIX_ML were found.
    All filesets for 5300-10_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 5300-11_AIX_ML were found.

bash-3.00# instfix -ciqv | grep 5300-08_AIX_ML | grep :-:
5300-08_AIX_ML:ifor_ls.html.en_US.base.cli:5.3.8.0:5.3.7.0:-:AIX 5300-08 Update

bash-3.00# instfix -ciqv | grep 5300-11_AIX_ML | grep :-:
5300-11_AIX_ML:ifor_ls.html.en_US.base.cli:5.3.8.0:5.3.7.0:-:AIX 5300-11 Update

As you can see it's the package 'ifor_ls.html.en_US.base.cli' that is causing the problem.
Sometimes you can simply remove the package using this command:

/usr/lib/instl/sm_inst installp_cmd -u -f'ifor_ls.html.en_US.base.cli'

In this case I received the error that another fileset is dependent on this one, so this time removal was not an option:

...<cut>...

FAILURES
--------
  Filesets listed in this section failed pre-deinstall verification
  and will not be removed.

  Dependency Failures
  (Deinstall Operation)
  ---------------------
  SELECTED FILESETS:  The following is a list of filesets that you asked to
  remove.  They cannot be removed until all of their dependent filesets
  are also removed.  See subsequent lists for details of dependents.

    ifor_ls.html.en_US.base.cli 5.3.7.0       # LUM HTML Guides - U.S. English

  INSTALLED DEPENDENTS:  The following filesets are dependents of one or more
  of the selected filesets listed above.  These must be removed before
  or with the filesets that you selected.  To remove these dependents with
  the selected filesets, specify the option to automatically remove dependent
  software (-g flag).
  WARNING:  The fileset updates listed below have created dependencies from
  their filesets to one or more of the filesets that you are trying to
  remove.  If you choose to automatically remove dependent software, the
  entire dependent fileset will be removed (not just the update).  You
  may be able to reject the update to remove the dependency.

The story continues… (when I have time)

Install RSYNC

When you install the rsync provided with the Linux Toolbox CD you'll get this error:

sjoerd@aixbox:/tmp/sft>sudo rpm -vi rsync-2.6.2-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm 
error: failed dependencies:
        libpopt.a(libpopt.so.0) is needed by rsync-2.6.2-1

This dependency is solved by installing the popt package provided on the cd as well:

sjoerd@aixbox:/tmp/sft>sudo rpm -vi popt-1.7-2.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
popt-1.7-2
sjoerd@aixbox:/tmp/sft>sudo rpm -vi rsync-2.6.2-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm 
rsync-2.6.2-1

What file is with what fileset

If you have a file and you wanna know what fileset it belongs to enter this command:

sjoerd@aixbox:/usr/bin>lslpp -w /usr/bin/dbx
  File                                        Fileset               Type
