Hi All!


Not sure if this is the correct area to post as I'm using RHEL 5.2. But here it is . . .

Getting an issue . . .

Code:
[root@qadmirror ~]# yum list xen*
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "security" plugin
rhel-i386-server-5        100% |=========================| 1.4 kB    00:00     
Installed Packages
xen.i386                                 3.0.3-64.el5           installed       
xen-libs.i386                            3.0.3-64.el5           installed       
Available Packages
xen-libs.i386                            3.0.3-64.el5_2.1       rhel-i386-server
When I run a yum update xen-libs.i386, I get . . .

Code:
[root@qadmirror ~]# yum update xen-libs
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "security" plugin
rhel-i386-server-5        100% |=========================| 1.4 kB    00:00     
Skipping security plugin, no data

--> Processing Dependency: xen-libs = 3.0.3-64.el5 for package: xen
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: xen-libs = 3.0.3-64.el5 is needed by package xen
Anyone have a clue?

Thanks much!

You're trying to update xen-libs when xen needs the package already installed. I'd suggest upgrading both if there's updated xen packages available.

Yup. Didn't find one or didn't match.

Try doing a yum list xen* to find all possible packages available.

Ah, yeah. I'd suggest to just hold up on updating the package til they get an equivalent xen package to support it.
