up2date & yum update - dependency 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4


I am a novice, please bare with me. Recently I installed Fedora Core 4 (i386). I ran up2date and received the following message:

Quote:
There was a package dependency problem. The message was:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
GFS-kernel 2.6.11.8-20050601.152643.FC4 requires /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1447_FC4

dlm-kernel 2.6.11.5-20050601.152643.FC4 requires /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1447_FC4
gnbd-kernel 2.6.11.2-20050420.133124.FC requires /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1447_FC4
I also tried:
# yum update

Quote:

# ls /lib/modules
2.6.11-1.1369_FC4
2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp

Where can I get 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 and how do I install it?

Thank you.

Try updating the kernel and see if the problem goes away:

yum update kernel*

That should update both smp and non-smp kernels and the kernel development packages.

Thanks, that seems to have worked.

After I ran yum update kernel*, there are multiple entries in my grub boot menu:

Fedora Core (2.6.12-1.1456_FC4)
Fedora Core (2.6.12-1.1456_FC4smp)
Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp)
Fedora Core-up (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4)

Can I just remove the old Fedora Core entries (2.6.11-1.1369) from /boot/grub/grub.conf, or should I leave them there?

you can remove them from the menu without worrying about it.

Unless you have two or more processors, you should uninstall the smp kernels because you don't need them.

not if you have a Pentium 4 with HYPERTHREADING...

P.S. you should get rid of 'up2date' and only use YUM...there is a GUI for YUM called YUMEX, which works quite nice.

You can go to this url:

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...pdates/4/i386/

....browse the list and pick out the kernel or other rpm and download/save to your home directory,right click on the rpm package,choose "Open with 'Archive Manager' ",you should then be prompted for root password then if all dependencies are met you will be given the opt to proceed and there will be a new kernel available at boot time.

I think that the biggest problem most people have with updating is that they need to install the development packages now as "extras".So when you go to the repositories pick up and install those packages

I know that FC 2 and FC 3 included all of the development stuff and you could choose what packages you wanted to install during the initial install or afterwards from the discs.

Now FC 4 is a basic install with no extra's on the discs and you have to get these yourself or use "yum" or "up2date" or whatever seems to be in vogue these days to satisfy any needed dependencies.

Phil

ps:

As mentioned earlier probably not a good idea to remove earlier kernel versions until you have run and tested the new kernel,sometimes there are unpleasant consequences.

I have a Pentium 4 2.6 with Hyper-Threading so I use the smp kernel.

Thanks for all the input, everything is running fine.

Unhappy still issues with dependencies in 2.6.12

I am currently running a Fedora Core 4 dual xeon with kernel 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4smp.

Recently I have run into an update problem. When I run update and I select all packages I get the following error:

There was a package dependency problem. The message was:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
GFS-kernel 2.6.11.8-20050601.152643.FC4 requires /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1447_FC4
cman-kernel 2.6.11.5-20050601.152643.FC requires /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1447_FC4
dlm-kernel 2.6.11.5-20050601.152643.FC4 /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1447_FC4
gnbd-kernel 2.6.11.2-20050420.133124.FC requires /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1447_FC4

I have tried downloading the kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 rpms and installing them but the rpm system tells me they are already installed. And as you can see I am running 2.6.13 kernel which I did thru standard update procedure several weeks ago. I am sort of confused on how I got in this situation but here I am.

After downloading the kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4.i686.rpm from
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...updates/4/i386
and running yum update kernel* just yields the following:

.
.
.
Warning: rpmts_HdrFromFdno: Header V3 DSa signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2

Public key for kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4.i686.rpm is not installed

OK so now I'm lost, any ideas??

Any help is greatly appreciated....

Thanks
JDS

You need to import the FC4 gpg keys using root privileges:

rpm --import /usr/share/doc/fedora-release-4/RPM-GPG-KEY*
