How to tell yum missing dependency is actually there

I'm having shutdoen problems in Core6 whenever I run wine version 0.9.29.fc6, (as previously posted here ).
I also have core4 on this machine with no similar problem running wine 0.9.27.fc4.
Thought I'd see what happens if I uninstall 0.9.29.fc6 and reinstall the core4 version.

yum comes up with this missing dependency.
Error: Missing Dependency: /usr/X11R6/bin/xmessage is needed by package wine-core.

however I've copied xmessage to /usr/X11R6/bin from FC4.

[mike@core6 ~]$ cd /usr/X11R6/bin
[mike@core6 bin]$ ls
mkfontdir mkfontscale xmessage

so how do I convince yum the dependency isn't missing???

The dependency is still missing, because the dependency isn't in the filesystem, it's in the rpm database. You need to install the requisite package that contains xmessage:

yum install xorg-x11-apps

Have you applied maintenance to your system to see if the problem is corrected? I'm using wine with FC6 on multiple machines, and haven't encountered your problem.

Thanks macemoneta, didn't realise yum depended on the rpm database.
The problem is thou, xorg-x11-apps is already installed.
It seems that core6 doesn't install it to /usr/X11R6/bin
If I use core4 version, I afraid that will interfer with the aps that need the core6 version.

I guess you mean updates by system maintenance????
I'm on broadband but it's download limited, I've only got 80mb left until next week, (core6 updates sure use it up!) after that I'll have a fully up to date machine, hopefully that will fix it.
