Package Management

I wanted to start doing some programming with Linux.
So i go to the Package Management and try to install some development tools
When I press update is says that there is an unlocatable package name libxml2
Which is required by libxml-python', '2.6.6', '3' I have looked all over for this package. Where is it?

Where is the 'libxml2' package and how can i find it?

Obi wan i need you help

First and formost comes the world famous question... "What distro are you talking about? FC1... FC2.... Redhat X.X ?"

If it's FC2...

And here is your list of packages

or you can just type
up2date libxml2 libxml2-devel
and it will truck off onto the internet and get them automagically for you.
