Unable to install package through yum


Hi,

I'm trying to install imagemagick on a redhat machine, and have run into a road block, with the following:

Code:
$ sudo yum install rpm-devel
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "security" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Excluding Packages from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5Server - x86_64 - rpmforge - Unwire Local Repository
Finished
Parsing package install arguments

Error: Package rpm-libs needs rpm = 4.4.2-47.el5, this is not available.
What does this error mean, and how do I resolve it?

I think I figured out what's wrong. After speaking to my sysadm, I found out that we have an internal repository. I reckon that's why it couldn't find those dependencies. In any case, we ended up simply building imagemagick from source instead.

Thanks for your help nonetheless.
