annoying URPMI


[root@me home]# urpmi cyrus-sasl
The following packages can't be installed because they depend on packages
that are older than the installed ones:
cyrus-sasl-2.1.19-12mdk
Continue? (Y/n) y
The package(s) are already installed
[root@me home# urpme cyrus-sasl
unknown package: cyrus-sasl

when I run: rpm -qa|grep -i cyrus
I get nothing.

this keeps happening everytime I want to install something and I have to do it manually. All sources are updated .. .grr Im starting to get frustrated...

I appreciate your help.

maybe try installing the updated "cyrus-sasl-2.1.21-5.i386.rpm"

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/...6/Fedora/RPMS/

it may not be in the latest urpmi database.

2.1.19-12 is the version of the RPM from 2005LE yet you've listed your distro as 'Mandrake 10.1'. Sounds like you've got the repositories for 2005LE setup instead of the ones for 10.1. Fix that at http://easyurpmi.zarb.org and try again.

You should use the cooker version. And that error is not urpmis fault. You should regularly update your sources (especially if using beta software), so that urpmi knows where to fetch the latest packages if any are provided for your system.

Beta should be using the cooker repositories as redazz said, its no good pointing it at the previous version (2005LE) because the packages are all newer. And remember a beta is just that - a beta for testing, if you want something stable and usable get the latest non-beta version which would be 2005LE (equivalent to 10.2 on the old versioning) or wait for the full release version of 2006.
