Correcting a yum dependency issue

I have done some recent upgrades, using yum, to my FC4 system. But now, if I try and run another upgrade (after having installed some other packages, also via yum) I get this:

---> Package elfutils-libelf-devel.i386 0:0.108-1 set to be updated
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: perl(String::CRC32) for package: lftp
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: perl(String::CRC32) is needed by package lftp
[root@localhost ~]# yum install perl

Perl is installed as you may see in the second command. How do I resolve this so that yum works to check for system updates?

You have the "lftp" package from the ATrpms repo, which depends on the "perl-String-CRC32" package from Dries, which is not one of your Yum repos.

Thanks. I don't need lftp, so took the easy route and uninstalled. Now dependencies are fine.

be carefully which repositories you mix!!!
Some are not compatible with others and that will lead to dependency problems!

In your case:

Livna is compatible with Fedora Extras:
