Package Dependencies on Old Versions (Newbie: Help Please!)
I have been using Redhat Linux 9 for about a month now on my Sony Vaio PCG-Z1RA laptop. I have been trying to install some of the development packages using the "Add/Remove Applications" tool under "System Settings."
I have been using up2date to keep the system current, but now the packages I am trying to install are dependent on the original versions that came with Linux 9. They won't recognize the newer packages:
Here's what I've got:
Packages Not Found
The following packages could not be found on your system. Installation cannot continue until they are installed.
I tried installing the older versions with no success. Does anyone have a work-around or solution to this. Much thanks in advance!!
You can always try and force installation...
Tink (knowing well why he doesn't use an RPM based distro :})
Thanks for the help! I'll probably end up trying to track down all of the "X Software Development" packages separately and installing them one-by-one. And I guess I'll have to warm up to gcc as well!
