How to troubleshoot dependency issue please? (Using YUM)


Yum update complains that four XFree86 files are needed but not available. However, when I did a grep with my rpm -qa, all the 'missing' files are actually installed (as stated by rpm -qa)

How should I go about troubleshooting this dependency issue or any dependency issue in general?

Thanks

if i were you, i wouldnt trust such an application to install important things such as X which have many many many dependency's

if it made a mistake, it could break every non command line program on your box.

install X yourself.

Anyway, it seems that YUM is complaining about the files headers not being available on the yum server.... read 'man yum' there is a configureation file with yum servers in it, look for a yum server which has the X stuff on it, and add its url to that config file.

Resolving dependencies
..Package XFree86 needs XFree86-xfs = 4.3.0-45.0.1, this is not available.
Package XFree86 needs XFree86-libs = 4.3.0-45.0.1, this is not available.

Package XFree86-devel needs XFree86-libs = 4.3.0-45.0.1, this is not available.

It seems that the headers have been downloaded successfully from (1) above(I might be wrong) before proceeding on to resolve the dependencies.

As for the needed XFree86-xfs and XFree86-libs, this is what I have from my queries:

[root@test fedora-us-1]# rpm -qa | grep XFree86-libs
XFree86-libs-4.3.0-45.0.1
XFree86-libs-data-4.3.0-45.0.1
[root@test fedora-us-1]# rpm -qa |grep XFree86-xfs
XFree86-xfs-4.3.0-45.0.1

Seem to be already installed on my system?

Thanks.
