Need help understanding Yum update dependency issues
When I run "yum update" I get the following error:
Perhaps some kind soul could point me in the right direction please?
Below are the details of the server. Please let me know what else I need to provide:
Linux mail.mydomain.com 2.6.32-279.2.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Jul 20 01:55:29 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I'm using clamsmtp for scanning mail in conjunction with Postfix.
Thanks in advance :-)
ok, so it looks like the clamd package is being updated from different directions. don't just "update" the whole lot. Check out the yum priorities plugin, and make epel a higher priority than rpmforge. then "upgrade" clamd to the version in epel and everythgin should then follow on OK.
I'd like to know/check if this is RHEL or Centos eg
Problem is they can conflict with each other.
Try installing yum-priorities rpm and setting eg Centos=5, epel=20, rf=30.
Personally I'd try to minimise repo sets.
Thanks to both of you for that. Installing "priorities" appears to have solved my problems for now.
Unfortunately, much as I wanted to avoid using any third party repositories, I was unable to find a documented procedure capable of installing clamsmtp on CentOS6 with Postfix 2.6.x, without installing the extra repos. Probably didn't look in the right places, but I did devote a couple of days to it never the less. I hope because of that it's not going to give 3 years of pain!
Thanks again :-)
