where are the Fedora LiveCD lib files??


I have this issue with Fedora 7 LiveCD version where occasionally, when installing an rpm file, it will tell me that it was unable to resolve certain dependencies. It lists the dependencies I need, and so I go to install those, but often times I will be told that these packages are already installed on my system, yet the original rpm I want to install still can't resolve the dependencies. Wtf?

Can you post some examples? Are you running from the live cd or have you installed onto hard disk?

Assuming that you have installed it to your hard drive. I suspect that you are mixing repos. Which repos are you using?

I have installed in the hard drive, and an example of this would be when I tried to install SANE backends, I couldn't execute the make command, because apparently I'm missing the gcc libs. I download the .rpms for gcc, try to install them, but the installation manager tells me that I already have an updated version of this installed, and does not allow me to install it.

First, have you tried to use yum?

Second, where are you getting your rpms from?

3rd, post the exact errors (cut and paste).
