Dependency resolution failed


Hi everybody. I am new here and to Linux which am falling in love with.
I ran Fedora 9 on Virtual PC 2007 so I needed to install the Virtual machine additions. I used "Install or update virtual machine additions" from the VM menu and followed the steps to capture the iso image. I didn't know if there is a command to install all of them together so I double clicked on each package to install it which ran smoothly until I got this error for one of the packages:

Dependency resolution failed

Kernel-source >= 2.4.9 is needed by package vmadd-full-2.0-1.i386


By the way, I updated the whole system and the kernel is up to date.

Please help me.

Welcome to LQ!
Kernel and kernel source are two different things,so look for a package with "kernel source" or similar in the name and install it.That's it.

EDIT: It looks like the package that you want to install requiers very old kernel source,so maybe you'll need to install that kernel and its source for that software to work.

Kernel-source >= 2.4.9 : Means ... at least version
'2.4.9' , so may be the default 'kernel-devel' for
Fedora 9 will do.

Try this : # yum install kernel-devel-Žuname -rŽ

( Else you will have to look for a package like
kernel-2.6.25-14.fc9.src.rpm,which is the source.)

You should be able to install kernel source with your package manager.If the package wmadd requiers some older kernel and its sources no matter if there is "Kernel-source >= 2.4.9 is needed..." then you'll maybe have to search for the kernel that wmadd will work with if you really want to install that package.

Alan would you please tell me how to install ALL Fedora 9 development libraries using the Konsole? This would solve many problems I got with another issue as well.

  • # yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
  • # yum groupinstall "Development Libraries"

Good luck !
....

P.S.: Found some examples, kernel 2.4.9 src.rpm, source
http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/lin...S/en/os/SRPMS/
http://www.citi.umich.edu/projects/nfs-perf/patches/

( Or just google .. 2.4.9 src.rpm .. )

Remember that is always good to search LQ or internet before you ask a question.It's better if you try to do it yourself.
I found two links that you would like to check: 1,2.
