Thanks colucix,

appreciate the pointers.

yum definitely seems the way to go.

you'd think that since I'm a subscriber to the red hat network that RHN would be all over that dependency thing for their subscribers. I just don't get it - if a user wants to install a package x that's dependant then on package y and z then surely the install should just install x,y and z as a matter of course? I'm sure there's reasons.

I'm also new to these forums, is it like ebay where I rate the feedback from fellow users? Let me know if there's anything I can do to increase your prestige, so you get more kudos here in the forum.

Cheers,

I don't know how RHN exactly works, but I guess it takes care of dependencies as well. On the other hand Red Hat Network is another way to manage packages installation (a kind of web administration tool).

Thank you for your appreciation. There is no way to rate the contribution of a LQ member, except for rating threads, as explained in the LQ FAQ, here. Anyway, I don't want more prestige, just enjoy myself in helping people - as far as I can - and learn something new in return!
