.. And if some packages are excluded in /etc/yum.conf
.. you won't get them.

Quote :
"1198 packages excluded due to repository priority protections"

Nice to know which 1,198 , and better check it.

Example line in /etc/yum.conf :
exclude=x*
.. and you get no packages starting with x.

Okay, so I tried the first suggestion, but I get the same problem:

Code:
# yum install gsl-devel

I don't really understand because the dependencies seems to be ok:
Code:
]# yum list installed gsl-devel gsl-static
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, kernel-module, kmod, priorities

gsl-devel.i386                                                                                       1.10-10.el5                                                                                      installed

When I look in /etc/yum.conf I cannot see any exclusions mentioned:
Code:
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1
plugins=1

# Note: yum-RHN-plugin doesn't honor this.
metadata_expire=1h

installonly_limit = 5

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d
I have quite a lot of repos and I'm not really sure how to manage them!
Code:
 yum.repos.d]# ls
CentOS-Base.repo         epel.repo          lscsoft.repo      rpmforge.repo
CentOS-Base.repo.rpmnew  epel-testing.repo  mirrors-rpmforge
CentOS-Media.repo        eyemagnet.repo     pidgin.repo
Thanks!

Try moving the "alien" repo's to a backup directory
e.g. /etc/yum.repos.d/backup/ or disable them all :

' epel-testing.repo lscsoft.repo eyemagnet.repo
pidgin.repo rpmforge.repo '.

The problem can be : one of the packages, you are
trying to install, is having a higher (build) version
in the 'alien' repo, and is thus selected from this non
supported repo.
But no guarantee, that the dependencies exist at all
for that version. ?

Looks like a Centos installation, version 5.x.

The Centos repos should be ok, although you shouldn't have 2 Centos-Base really...
Note that there are other Centos-xxx repos you can add. See the Centos docs.

epel is the unofficial repo for RHEL5/Centos compatible stuff ie stuff that RH don't supply. Should be ok.

You NEVER want a repo called xxx-testing.xxx unless you enjoy alpha quality code testing. Disable it.

All the other repos are ones I'd not try to install on a RHEL/Centos system. Try disabling them.

use

yum clean all

possibly also

rpm --rebuild

to clean up the yum/rpm db/cache.

Do you know the history of this box; why it's got those repos? Is it your personal box?

Yeah it's my work (academic) box. So I added eyemagnet for compiz fusion, I guess I can leave that as it is working fine now. lscsoft is software I use for work, although I don't actually need to update that too often. I'm not sure about rpmforge - maybe I added that for vlc?

Anyway I disabled all the alien repos, then updated and this worked. It broke X because I have propietary NVIDIA drivers so i sorted all that out.

Now even if I just enable the epel repo it won't work:

Code:
CentOS-Base.repo:enabled=1
CentOS-Base.repo.rpmnew:enabled=1
CentOS-Base.repo.rpmnew:enabled=1
CentOS-Media.repo:enabled=0
epel.repo:enabled=1
epel.repo:enabled=0
epel.repo:enabled=0
eyemagnet.repo:enabled=0
lscsoft.repo:enabled=0
pidgin.repo:enabled=0
pidgin.repo:enabled=0
pidgin.repo:enabled=0
rpmforge.repo:enabled = 0

I guess I can live without the alien repos, it is a bit annoying though..

Thanks for all your thoughts.

The problem is once you start mixing unsupported repos in, your system can easily get confused, because multiple repos often have different versions/dependency lists.
There are extra Centos repos you don't have; might be worth looking at them to see if you can get what you need just from Centos. It'll be more stable.
