Core 4 - X11-devel complains about X11-libs which are installed


I have a fresh Fedora Core 4 and package after package tells me it wants the X11 headers. But for some reason I just can't get them. And I have struggled with Xorg before on my laptop (slackware), from source, so I really want to get the headers from a rpm.

Here's what I do:
Code:
# yum install xorg-x11-devel

base                                                            1.1 kB 00:00

Already tried that and it just told me that no packages was marked for "Update/Obsoletion" and did nothing more.

Could be a glitch somewhere in the yum mirrors or with rpm. You could download the packages manually from a Fedora update server.
