Adding Packages to FC3 - Dependancy Problems


I've been searching high and low and I can't find any advice on this issue....

Existing FC3 installation runing on an IBM T42 laptop. I want to add some software packages using Applications | System Settings | Add/Rempve Applications. When I choose the applications that I want to install the system-config-pakages tool returns a list of dependancies that must be satisfied prior to installation occuring. My problem is that all of the depencies that are listed are already installed and up to date. The system-config-packages tool will not alow to install anything until the dependancies are resolved.

Thanks in advance for for the help.

Did you add those dependencies using the rpm tools in FC3? If you went "outside" the package manager, its internal database won't be updated.

You might want to use the commands:
updatedb
and
depmod -a

This is a new installation < 1 week old. I installed from fc3 test 3 ISO's that I burned last November. I then ran up2date to update all of the packages that have changed since then. I have used yum outside of up2date in order to install a few extras such as mplayer but that is it. I did update my yum.conf file from the sample yum.conf floating around on this site - could this be my problem?

Thanks for your response.
