Exact same problem


I've got the exact same problem and would appreciate any help very much. Would you guys recommend using yum with the -t option?
Also: I can uninstall yelp, I guess, but how about the notification daemon? Has anybody tried living without it and found it alright?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Acer appears to have highly customized that installation. I think you will have problems installing packages other than those from Acer that are intended for your box.

If you want to install something I would recommend installing the gcc toolkit and doing it from source. Further, I would suggest you not install gcc on that small, solid state, internal HD. Get a USB external drive and put it there.

When you install from source, you'll break the package manager system, but this *probably* won't matter much, given that Acer intends this machine to be a specialty device.

Hey,

I'm having a somewhat similar problem, and I wasn't sure if I should post a new thread, or just reply here. So I decided to reply here.

I'm running fedora 9 with Kernel Linux 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686. My computer is a Compaq Presario v6000, if that helps.

I tried running

Code:
su -c 'yum update'
And then I got this error message:

Code:
 Error: Missing Dependency: gecko-libs = 1.9.0.2 is needed by package blam-1.8.5-2.fc9.i386 (updates-newkey)
I did like the forum suggested and typed

Code:
 yum provides gecko-libs
But I didn't see Firefox. Instead, the result said

Code:
 Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
xulrunner.i386 : XUL Runtime for Gecko Applications
xulrunner.i386 : XUL Runtime for Gecko Applications
xulrunner.i386 : XUL Runtime for Gecko Applications
So what do I do now? How do I resolve the missing dependencies, and is it bad that this was the output?

Thanks so much!

I THINK there was a change going from F8(what I am running) and F9, where xulrunner was split off the FF package into its own package(which contained gecko-libs). You can try "yum install xulrunner" and that SHOULD do the trick. If not xulrunner is part of the "esc" package in F8.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!

I tried this command:

Code:
 su -c 'yum install xulrunner'
But, alas, it also told me

Code:
 Error: Missing Dependency: gecko-libs = 1.9.0.2 is needed by package blam-1.8.5-2.fc9.i386 (updates-newkey)
What should I do to get this gecko-libs?

Thanks again

Hmm, no I haven't. Should I do that, or should I avoid that?

Thanks again for your help!

It is worth a try. As I said in post #20 in F8 esc contains that xulrunner. So it may (or may not) be the same in F9.

Hey,

I installed esc, and that worked fine. But then when I tried

Code:
 yum install xulrunner
it once again gave me the error

Code:
 Error: Missing Dependency: gecko-libs = 1.9.0.2 is needed by package blam-1.8.5-2.fc9.i386 (updates-newkey)
What should I try now?

It could be a broken rpm database (worth a shot). As root: "rpm --rebuilddb" . It may take a few minutes. Then retry the install.

The only other thing I can think of is if you have a goofy repo in enabled. Post the results of: "yum repolist".

Hey,

Here's the result of the repolist:

Code:
# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
repo id              repo name                                 status
fedora               Fedora 9 - i386                           enabled
updates              Fedora 9 - i386 - Updates                 enabled
updates-newkey       Fedora 9 - i386 - Updates Newkey          enabled
I'll go ahead with the rebuild.

Well, there are not any screwy repos enabled. I assume that you have not installed any other rpms from anyplace else either? If it is not a broken DB, I am out of ideas.

Hey - I tried yum install xulrunner again, and I got the same error message as in post #25. I haven't installed any other rpms. What should I do? Reinstall?
