Cannot install developmental tools!
I'm trying to install my developmental tools, when I put in my first cd it autoruns I check the d-tools box to add them and get the message

Packages not found


I found the on the RHN page but the #'s on the end are higher (just newer vers right?) anyways still nothing works shouldn't the install cd's
have these since it was an option? also why is it i get alot of RPM's that just won't run or do anything for that? some have gone right in and some don't.

I've read on other post how some people don't like RH for various reasons and also hate RPM's. I'm assuming this is why. I figured when I bought RH since theres so many different distros and this ones in stores maybe it slightly more stable or something..what do i know. If picked a crappy distro someone tell me. I'm having this missing file problem on a few different apps gettin pretty anoying ya know?

apt4rpm or Red Carpet make living with rpm dependencies much easier IMHO.
