You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
You could try installing the "httpd" package before running your groupinstall. Still it's odd as gnome-user-share from base has a dependency in httpd, true, but the current version for Centos5.5 is "2.2.3-43.el5.centos" (base repo) and not "2.2.0". Cleaning Yum caches, making certain your have the right repos enabled and ensuring you have the right centos-release-5-*.el5.centos release .rpm installed would be a good start.
sorry i am too newbie for linux could you please give me a list of commands that i can run to install the dependencies. I have tried running
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
To see which update you use run 'cat /etc/redhat-release'. To clean caches run 'yum clean all'. To install Apache run 'yum install httpd'. Then run 'yum install gnome-user-share' to see if it works OK. If it does then you should be able to run your "yum groupinstall" without the error.
