Problems installing mozilla-devel, strange yum dependency error


I finally got my GNOME desktop back, via an yum install (thanks to all the people that helped), but found this little tidbit when I tried to do the package manager update. I then tried to do the install via yum to get a little more insight into the dependency issue.

I appreciate all help,

Fegenbush

Ok, after some examination, I have answered my question with yet another question:

Why is yum trying to install seamonkey? I think it sees it as a dependency, but what's up with that?

As always, thanks in advance...
