CENTOS 4.4 and YUM


Is there a way to download using YUM your package of choice and all of its dependencies in one shot. I am tired of downloading a package and then attemting to install it only to find out that you need about 69,000 dependencies An example is trying to download and install fwbuilder or firestarter.rpm on a CENTOS 4.4. It ask me for 69,000 lib... dependencies. Common sense would tell the developers to a least point you in the right direction for the little dependencies. I checked the MAN pages for YUM and I only found how to list the dependencies. I have wasted several hours scowering the CENTOS repositories to find maybe a few of these programs and having to ask the cyborgs.

Yum should install the dependencies as well by default.

Are you saying that you are trying to use yum or rpm at this stage? You may need to list extra repositories to find the packages you want.

Code:
yum list | grep fwbuilder
Then, once you find your package

Code:
yum install <Full_Package_Name>

oddly enough there is no fwbuilder.rpm! I went to third party CENTOS repositories and they had it there. If I download it from there then and run the install and this is where it ask me for several dependencies. I have loaded all of the development packages from the install and rechecked that they were all installed. any other suggestions?

it should be something like

yum install fwbuilder

Note no ".rpm" at the end.

Try

yum list available fwbuilder

to see if there is a package in your repositories
