Exclamation Packages Not Found


Hello, I am new to Fedora Core 3, and I wanted to install gphoto2-2.1.5, but I don't have the make program on my computer, so I went to "Add/Remove Programs" to install the Development Tools and clicked for it to update, but it says it needs "libselinux" which is required by ('system-config-securitylevel', '1.4.18', '2'), that it also needs "krb5-libs" whis is required by ('krb5-workstation', '1.3.6', '2'), and finally that it needs "libxml2" which is needed by ('libxml2-python', '2.6.16', '3'). So I searched online and I went to the Fedora website to get the RPM's, I downloaded them but they said they were already installed, so now I am stuck saying that it can't find the packages when really, it has the packages.

Any help would be great, thankyou.

Have you tried just asking yum to install ghoto2?

yum install gphoto2

Ok, I ran that, and I know it installed something, but I can't find gphoto2 on the applications menu.

well gphoto2 is a command line program

try this:

gphoto2 --auto-detect

gphoto2 --list-files

that will list your pics. Each line will start with a number...like

#1 picture.jpg
#2 picture2.jpg

So then you tell gphoto to grab them with a list of numbers:

gphoto2 --get-file 1-23

Or whatever the numbers you want. HTH...post back if you run into trouble.

That didn't work for me because ghoto2 didn't find my camera driver, but I got it working with gThumb, which I realized came with Fedora Core 3. Thankyou for your help though.
