Yes, you need to install the packages containing the missing files indicated in the error message.

I don't use an rpm based system. I use a deb based system. I can give you the packages names for that but you need to check them out for your own system. Surely yum (or whatever it's called) has a way of indicating what file is found in what package. If not, switch to a deb based system.

Don't hijack someone elses thread with your own question, or reopen old threads unless you're going to contribute another answer. Plus, this is also a duplicate post. Post reported.
