"packages not found" ERROR


Hi there,

I'm installing (using the Add/Remove packages) the Development Tools.
When I select anything (or even nothing) to install and press "Upgrade", I get the error:

Packages not found.
The following packages could not be found on your system. Installation can not continue until they are installed.

Unlocatable package:
cyrus-sasl = 2.1.7-2
Required by:
cyrus-sasl-devel

Unlocatable package:
krb5-libs = 1.2.5-6
Required by:
krb5-devel

How can I solve this problem?

Thanks in advance,


alexrm1x

Just search the packages with http://rpmfind.net and install them. HTH!

For some reason your Add/Remove tool is trying to add the packages cyrus-sasl-devel and krb5-devel but it can not find the cyrus-sasl = 2.1.7-2 and krb5-libs = 1.2.5-6 packages that are needed to install the devel packages. I would suggest downloading all 4 packages into one directory. Then install them from the command line by doing:

rpm -Uvh cyrus*
rpm -Uvh krb5*

It is also possible that your rpm database has become corrupted. To fix this you would do:

rpm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm --rebuilddb

Hi There,

I tried both
rpm -Uvh packageX*

but unfortunately it says that newer versions are installed.

I tried also to rebuild the installed package database, but I get the same error.

Is there any way for the system to recognize these new versions?
Can I uninstall the newer versions and have the original ones installed back?

Thanks,

alexrm1x
