Fedora 11 Missing Dependency issue with rpmforge
 
Hi everyone.. I'm still new to Linux, but i've familiarized myself with it enough to get myself into trouble..

after doing a 'yum update' i get this nasty error:

subversion-1.6.6-0.1.el5.rf.i386 from rpmforge has depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: liblber-2.3.so.0 is needed by package subversion-1.6.6-0.1.el5.rf.i386 (rpmforge)


plus a lot of other errors related to rpmforge.. I have a hunch that I need to uninstall 'subversion' which i tried to install because xbmc.. but i don't want it anymore because it's too hard to set up. I will be happy if I just knew how to uninstall subversion.. i think. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You are trying to install RHEL5 package on Fedora 11 system.
Doesn't look to me as good idea.

Right.. I just want to stop it from trying to resolve these dependencies.. how do I do that? I don't need RHEL5.. i don't even know what that is.

With any editor remove or comment out each repository you won't use

Will I need rmpfusion in the future though??

and just to make sure..

i would do 'gedit/etc/yum.repos.d/'

then edit right?

guysmiley 11-14-2009 01:34 AM

i'm going to bed.. so i won't be answering right away just so you know.. and for considerations sake.

guysmiley 11-14-2009 07:46 PM

bumpski?

guysmiley 11-15-2009 12:13 AM

ok. I'll bump again.. the last time. then i'll stop.. so I can let the records show that no one helped.. but.. I have heard good reports about this forum.. i don't understand. I will automatically thank anyone who responds though! :(

Not only you need sleep time.
And you know, there are also other things in the live but answering forum's questions.

About editing repository - mostly correct, but as long as I know you should specify file, not directory to gedit.

How anybody but you can know if you'll need rpmfusion in the future ?
But if it's cause problem now there is no harm in removing it, and you always can add it later.

guysmiley 11-15-2009 07:00 PM

ah ic. Thanks! will try it out and post back results.. :)

RHEL5 is a different OS(Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 5). RPMs are generally made for one specific distro, arch, and version. Using an rpm built for another distro(or arch or version) is going to cause you issues(like what you are having). From the look of it you installed the wrong rpm to setup the rpmforge repo(you got the RHEL setup file instead of the F11). If you post the results of:

Quote:

cat /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmforge.repo
We will be able to tell for sure. Assuming you have install the wrong one we can then direct you to install the correct one.

Edit: It appears there may be an additional issue with rpmforge. The F11 directory is coming up empty(F10 and others are still there). From the look of it rpmforge may be going through some sort of transition:

So it may be that they have a bad pointer or it may be that there has been a change in priorities.

red hat 5 IS VERY DIFFERENT than fedora
the VERY FIRST thing you need to do is REMOVE/UNINSTALL -- ALL -- el5 rpm's
this might kill your system BUT THERE IS NO OTHER WAY !!!!

1) run this
Code:

rpm -qa | grep el5
--- for a text out put ----
rpm -qa | grep el5 > rh5.txt

reed the text file rh5.txt , or the output in the terminal
fro ALL / everything listed there uninstall
yum erase the.el5 file
Code:

yum erase subversion-1.6.6-0.1.el5
2) uninstall that el5 ( centOS 5.4/RHEL 5.4) repo
you installed the WRONG one

3) reboot
if your system dose boot after this ?????? if there were only 1 to 6 rpm's that you removed then there is a very good chance your system will still work

but if you uninstalled 50 el5 rpms then there is a good chance it will never boot again

then see this help page
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f11.html
http://rpmfusion.org/

or
Code:

su -
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

and that will install the CORRECT one

While rpmfusion(for Fedora) is a good repo it is NOT the same as rpmforge.
