Yum does not downloads dependency from repository
I need to update with patches for my Java software running on 2000 RHEL4 servers connected on a network.I have placed following patch rpm files in my repository. This case is regarding insallation of update patches not a full package.
The first file(TestEDMSYUM-2.0.1-4.96.i386.rpm) is the latest patch which requires the second rpm (TestEDMSYUM-2.0.1-4.95.i386.rpm) to be installed before it. When i try to install these patches with yum update command, It gives me error message specifying that package not available as copied below.
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: TestEDMSYUM-2.0 - Base
Server: TestEDMSYUM-2.0 - i386 - Released Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
TestEDMSYUM-0-2.0.1-4.97. 100% |=========================| 1.3 kB 00:00
....Unable to satisfy dependencies
Package TestEDMSYUM needs TestEDMSYUM-2.0.1-4.96, this is not available.
YUM should resolve the dependency by dowloading the TestEDMSYUM-2.0.1-4.95.i386.rpm
from repository where the file already exists and header info is also updated.
Or is it possible to install all the patches one by one in sequence based on their release number as the rest of the filename will be same.
Can there be a new approach to this problem where all the patches are automatically installed without a dependency conflict. It is very important for me to ensure that previous patch is applied on the system
