Excluding dependencies from yum update


On my system I have mono and libgdiplus installed from source. When I do a yum update dbus, yum attempts to install mono and libgdiplus because they are required for dbus-sharp.


Code:
Updating:
 dbus                    i386       0.61-3.fc5.1     updates           624 k
 dbus-devel              i386       0.61-3.fc5.1     updates            35 k
 dbus-glib               i386       0.61-3.fc5.1     updates           108 k
 dbus-python             i386       0.61-3.fc5.1     updates           135 k
 dbus-sharp              i386       0.61-3.fc5.1     updates            52 k
 dbus-x11                i386       0.61-3.fc5.1     updates            21 k


Installing for dependencies:
 libgdiplus              i386       1.1.13.6-1.fc5.1  updates           280 k
 mono-core               i386       1.1.13.7-1.fc5.1  updates            11 M

Is it possible to get yum to exclude these dependencies or do I need to download the dbus rpm's and install them with rpm --nodeps?

you can't make yum ignore dependencies, so if you really are comfortable breaking the dependencies then you would manually install dbus-sharp. obviously this isn't a nice solution, but then many dependencies are arbitrary and won't cause problems if broken. buyer beware of course.

Cheers I'll just install them manually then for the moment.
