rh 8 and Development Tools pack


this may look stupid but, i'm afraid that, when i installed rh 8 i forgot to install Development Tools pack. Now i need it but can't install since it requests some packs that i have already installed on my system as in newer version .
so, how can i install this? Does the only way is 2 download all the individual packs and install then one by one!!!!????
is there a way to find this in one little nice rpm or whatever ready 2 install

thanks in advance,
regards

You can also put your RH Disc 1 in your CD drive when you are in X and it should automatically mount and bring up a GUI install screen go down to development tools click on the box beside this and then click update at the bottom, this will install the development tools and solve all dependencies.

BTW you can also use this to remove programs, if you click on the details link beside each main category you can select or deselect certain parts, the programs you have deselected will be removed when you click update.

nakkaya, thanks for u're reply. already did that but it doesn't look an option, since i would need to download something like 90-100 files in separate (40 modules+ 50 libs+ whatever more missing!). They don't have a rpm with the full pack, wich looks kind of stupid. not even mocosoft ( ) make us do that!!!

JayCnrs, thanls also, but i can't do that. like i wrote, i did that but, when i try to install it, it search for dependences and then it say i must have blablabla1-1111 installed and wont go further, but i already have blablabla1-22222 and can't install an older one in top of the newer. besides, if i uninstall these, then i must install others things depending on this and i've already updated my kernel with lot's of updateds and critical updates (3 since i've installed rh8.)

it's just looks 2 stupid. it doesn't exist out there a full packj ready 2 install with updated modules?

Maybe, try getting APT-RPM this is suppose to allow you to choose what you want to download and then solve all dependencies automatically downloading any RPMs you may need and install them.

Personally I haven't been home lately so I don't know how well it works but I do intend to give it a try tonight, also look into xiaman Red Carpet you can also install and update extra RPMs and it should solve your dependencies.

Good Luck

You don't have to download EVERY file although I don't see the harm in being up2date with things. I think this would probably be the easiest way to solve this issue.
