Add/Remove Applications Error


I'm trying to install some development tools for my linux system. I went to Add/Remove Applications, and selected the Development tools applications and clicked UPDATE. I get this error that says :

"Packages Not Found"

Unlocatable Package Required By
krb5-libs = 1.2.7-10 krb5-devel
openssl = 0.9.7a-2 openssl-devel


How can I fix this problem?

Thanks so much!
John

It is a good idea to add it to your profile.

Edit: They say great minds think alike

You should be able to find the packages on rpmfind:
http://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2htm...ystem=redhat-9

Then download the packages - ie:
wget -c ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/u....7-14.i386.rpm

And install - ie:
rpm -ivh krb5-devel-1.2.7-14.i386.rpm

I have the same issue (Red Hat 9). I downloaded said files, and this is what happened when I tried to install them. I was logged in as root.

rpm -ivh openssl-0.9.7a-20.2.src.rpm
error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
rpm -ivh krb5-1.2.7-14.src.rpm
error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

Make sure you download the non source rpms - the ones without ".src" in the name.
