Not so YUMmy installs
I recently made a move from Windows to Linux. Well, it was basically a comeback because I had been using Linux on and off since 1996 and I thought it would be challenging to learn something new.
Well, I installed Fedora Core 1, and knowing the fact that Fedora 2 has been out for a while and that Fedora 3 (Testing) is quite stable, I thought that I'd download the .iso images and upgrade.
In order for me to burn the images, I need a CD Burning program. Sure, the command line may be a friend of many, but I'd really rather not waste time learning new commands. Fedora Core 1 includes a program called CD Writer. After the first few times I booted the system, it actually worked and detected my LiteON drive. Unfortunately, now it doesn't detect it for some reason. I thought I'd give K3B a try, but things have changed a little and the official K3B website recommends that I use yum.
Well, I went through most of the yum howto and typed in 'yum install k3b' after reading the instructions on the K3B site as well. The Yum howto gave all this insight about how wonderful and revolutionary yum is, and that it's even better than apt! Well, check out the following output:
.....identical dependency loop exceeded
package k3b needs libFLAC++.so.2 (not provided)
package k3b needs libFLAC.so.4 (not provided)
package k3b needs libid3-3.8.so.3 (not provided)
Not so YUMmy, is it?
Should anyone be nice enough to know what to do with a dependency loop which I honestly don't feel like resolving myself, or better yet how to just install K3b, please let me know.
Thank you in advance,
