yum missing dependencY


take a look at this:
Quote:
[ ... ]
--> Processing Dependency: net-snmp = 5.2.1-12 for package: net-snmp-libs
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: net-snmp = 5.2.1-12 is needed by package net-snmp-libs
[root@puppet luca]# rpm -q net-snmp
net-snmp-5.2.1-12
what the hell happened? and how can I solve this?

thanks for your help

You can try removing the package 'rpm -e net-snmp' and then run 'yum install net-snmp' to see if it will download it again. If not, you can manually download the rpm and load it up. Which distro is this for?

I use fedora core 4 for AMD64. Take a look to the following...
Quote:
[root@puppet luca]# rpm -e net-snmp
error: Failed dependencies:
net-snmp = 5.2.1-12 is needed by (installed) net-snmp-libs-5.2.1-12.i386
net-snmp = 5.2.1-12 is needed by (installed) net-snmp-libs-5.2.1-12.x86_64
[root@puppet luca]# rpm -e net-snmp-libs
error: "net-snmp-libs" specifies multiple packages
[root@puppet luca]# rpm -e --allmatches net-snmp-libs
error: Failed dependencies:

libnetsnmp.so.5()(64bit) is needed by (installed) kdeutils-3.4.2-0.fc4.1.x86_64

libnetsnmptrapd.so.5()(64bit) is needed by (installed) net-snmp-5.2.1-12.x86_64
...uh... had to try another way... so I solved this way:
Quote:
[root@puppet luca]# yum upgrade --exclude net-snmp*

The above didn't quite make it for me, (every attempt either gave me the dependency error or tried to fooling me yum upgrade was complete - yeah, right...sure) however this did:

rpm -e net-snmp

returned something like 'can't do it mate, since there are dependencies from net-snmp-libs-5.2.1-12.i386 and net-snmp-libs-5.2.1-12 .x86_64'

As the ruthless man I am - my answer was obvious:
rpm -e net-snmp-libs-5.2.1-12.i386
rpm -e net-snmp-libs-5.2.1-12.x86_64
rpm -e net-snmp

Followed by a swift:
yum clean all
yum upgrade

Now
rpm -q net-snmp tells me that net-snmp is not installed

I tried
yum install net-snmp

and it installed a brand new version of net-snmp (5.2.1.2-fc4.1).

I'm a happy camper!



...just lurking

Talking THANK YOU

I am a fedora noob, and I had a similar problem. That was just what I needed. Thank you so much!!! You can never find anything that actually helps you with a problem....it's always different. But this time, I actually found the right answer. That made my day!

I get similar messages when I run yum update:
Error: Missing Dependency: dbus-glib = 0.22 is needed by package hal
Error: Missing Dependency: libdbus-1.so.0 is needed by package hal
Error: Missing Dependency: dbus = 0.22 is needed by package hal

yum remove hal
reports 135 packages to be erased. I'm a bit nervous about letting it proceed.

What next?

I'm having a similar problem but the dependencies I'm trying to fix have too many dependencies themselves.
this is what they are.
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: gnome-python2 = 2.6.0-3 is needed by package gnome-python2-canvas
Error: Missing Dependency: qt-devel = 1:3.3.3-8 is needed by package qt-designer
Error: Missing Dependency: kdegraphics = 7:3.3.0-3 is needed by package kdegraphics-devel

ps. I'm currrently trying to upgrade from FC3 to FC4
