Can't update dbus-qt on Fedora Core 4

I am running Fedora Core 4 (32-bit Intel). I am trying to update my system using the YUM Extender. When I run YUM Extender I have the option to update a package named dbus-qt. When I select the package for update I get the following error:

Missing Dependency: dbug-qt = 0.33-3.1.fc4.kde is needed by package dbug-devel

Check output page for more info.

The output page provides:

Setting up Update Process
['Missing Dependency: dbus-qt = 0.33-3.1.fc4.kde is needed by package dbus-devel']

I don't find this output to be helpful. What needs to be done to resolve this dependency problem and update the package?

"dbug-qt" is available from the KDE-RedHat repository; you can add it to your Yum repos. It doesn't make any sense since the "dbus-devel" package that comes with Fedora Core doesn't depend on "dbus-qt". Maybe you mistyped the name or it's from somewhere else? You can try removing it and see what happens.

My YUM Extender repository has two entries:

Both refer to the same repository:

The package fails to update even when both repositories are selected. I don't see how I could have mis-typed anything as YUM Extender provides all the information without me have to use the keyboard.

The problem is that either YUM Extender or YUM itself is not marking dbus-qt-devel to be upgraded. You will have to tell Yum Extender to install it manually. To do so, go to the install tab and use "dbus-qt" as the filter (without the quotes). Then check both dbus-qt and dbus-qt-devel. and then hit install. That should fix your problem.

on my system hal-devel 0.5.2-2 was dependant upon the version of dbus-qt-devel that you are having trouble updating automatically. I decided to remove it but YMMV.

I think that did the trick. dbus-qt no longer shows up in the update list.
