installing gnome on centos 5


Hello,

I am trying to install gnome desktop on centos 5 vps. I am getting the following error when i ran this command yum groupinstall “GNOME Desktop Environment” to install gnome it gave me this error and i dont know wat to do now. i am able to connect to my server through vncviewer but the GUI is not working so the screen is black. Here is the error i am getting when trying to install gnome.

Error: Missing Dependency: httpd >= 2.2.0 is needed by package gnome-user-share-0.10-6.el5.i386 (base)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
[root@host .vnc]#

Any help would be appreciated
thanks

You could try installing the "httpd" package before running your groupinstall. Still it's odd as gnome-user-share from base has a dependency in httpd, true, but the current version for Centos5.5 is "2.2.3-43.el5.centos" (base repo) and not "2.2.0". Cleaning Yum caches, making certain your have the right repos enabled and ensuring you have the right centos-release-5-*.el5.centos release .rpm installed would be a good start.

To see which update you use run 'cat /etc/redhat-release'. To clean caches run 'yum clean all'. To install Apache run 'yum install httpd'. Then run 'yum install gnome-user-share' to see if it works OK. If it does then you should be able to run your "yum groupinstall" without the error.
