Question Packages not found (xorg-x11-libs)


I'm using FC2 and after installing with the defaults, I'm trying to add a package.
I go to Add/Remove programs, which takes me to the Package Management window, and I check GNOME Software Development (which installs GTK, etc). After I hit update, I get a window saying that xorg-x11-libs cannot be found. It is needed by: xorg-x11-xfs (6.7.0,5), xorg-x11 (6.7.0,5), xorg-x11-twm (6.7.0,5).
Here's the interesting part... if I type in,
rpm -qa | grep 'xorg'
I get the following:
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-xauth-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-tools-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-font-utils-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-base-fonts-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-xfs-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-75dpi-fonts-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-twm-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-libs-data-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-libs-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-100dpi-fonts-6.7.0-5

which includes xorg-x11-libs. Why is it saying that it can't find it???? Thanks in advance!

I have a similar problem. When I attempt to install the kernel source (kernel-sourcecode-2.6.6-1.435.2.3.noarch.rpm) using the package manager, I also get the message that says xorg-x11-libs is an Unlocatable package Required by xorg-x11-xfs, 6.7.0, 5 and xorg-x11, 6.7.0, 5 and xorg-x11-twm, 6.7.0, 5 even though an rpm query shows the following:

xorg-x11-font-utils-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-base-fonts-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-100dpi-fonts-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-libs-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-xauth-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-xfs-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-tools-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-twm-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-75dpi-fonts-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-libs-data-6.7.0-5

Here are the last few messages that appear in the terminal session where I attempted the RPM install. I do see mention of xorg-x11-libs-6.7.0-2 but not 6.7.0-5 (other than the last 3 lines which I think are causing the error).

* using gtk2-devel-0:2.4.0-1.i386 to satisfy gtk2-devel
* using qt-devel-1:3.3.2-2.i386 to satisfy qt-devel
* using xorg-x11-devel-0:6.7.0-2.i386 to satisfy XFree86-devel

('xorg-x11-libs', '6.7.0-5')
('xorg-x11-libs', '6.7.0-5')
('xorg-x11-libs', '6.7.0-5')

I have also tried to install the kernel source from my FC2 CD's and get the same error. I'm trying to install the source so I can install the new nVidia driver. I generally keep the system current using up2date and I do remember updating xorg-x11 a few weeks ago but I don't remember anything being out of the ordinary on that or other updates.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. I've pretty much exhausted my knowledge and resources.

Thanks,

Tom

How I got over the problem

Tom, fgoyti

I too had this problem when trying to install the kernel-source package using the Fedora2 utilities (xorg-x11-libs cannot be found, even though it is installed). I used yum (after editing the /etc/yum.conf file to point to a UK server rather redhat). The command:

yum install kernel-source

did the trick, bringing in all sorts of dependencies (but not xorg-x11-libs!). This does of course mean you are downloading all sorts of stuff you already have on your CDs.

Hope I have interpreted you problem correctly and that this solves it.

regards

Gamesley Tiger

I had this same problem too, I was trying to install gcc because I had overlooked it on the install of FC2. My fix for it was simple though since I was so early in my use of FC2 and had nothing important that I'd lose...so I just redid the install with what I wanted...

Gamesley / Tsudeki,

Thanks for the replies. I also thought about starting over since I hadn't changed much but wanted to try to fix this problem. I have read other posts like this but never a solution. I also did not install everything I needed during the initial install.

Last night, however, I did solve my problem although I cannot document the exact steps I took. As I recall, what I did was to install some additional x11 packages using Add/Remove Applications. I installed xorg-x11-doc and xorg-x11-xdm. I then un-installed xorg-x11-twm which was one of the applications that was missing xorg-x11-libs. I then selected the Kernel Development group of packages to install and I did not get my normal error but, it selected 17 total packages to install (including xorg-x11-libs). I did the install which required quite a bit of CD shuffling but when it was done, everything seemed to work correctly. It is interesting that an rpm query now shows:

xorg-x11-font-utils-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-base-fonts-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-100dpi-fonts-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-xfs-6.7.0-2
xorg-x11-libs-data-6.7.0-2
xorg-x11-xauth-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-tools-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-devel-6.7.0-2
xorg-x11-libs-6.7.0-2
xorg-x11-75dpi-fonts-6.7.0-5
xorg-x11-6.7.0-2
xorg-x11-twm-6.7.0-2

Some of the packages did revert back to 6.7.0-2 because they came from the CD's. Of course, up2date now tells me I have updates available for each of those packages. I am reluctant to upgrade them because I suspect that's how I got into this mess but I don't really know.

I do think there is some underlying problem here with the FC2 package management but I don't know enough about it to figure out what it is. Hopefully someone else will be able to benefit from our collective experiences.

One other small point. When I am installing packages from the CD's and the Package Manager asks for a different CD, I have found that I have eject the CD that is in the drive and then place the needed CD in the tray but I must not press the button on the drive to load the CD. If I do, the Package Manager will report that it cannot read the CD and will sometimes abort the whole process. Instead of pressing the button on the CD drive, I just select Ok from the original message that popped up. The tray is then immediately sucked into the drive and the CD is read by the installer correctly every time. I have an ABIT NF7 M'board with a Sony CDRW and a Pioneer slot load dvd drive. Don't know if my hardware has anything to do with that behavior. It took me quite a while to figure this out. I have to use the Sony for reading those CD's because the Pioneer (being a slot load) does not have a tray.

Thanks again,

Tom
