After reading about your use of rpm --nodeps, I suggest in the future you either use
yum remove myrpm
instead. There are a few occasions where --nodeps is valuable, but mostly it is dangerous. One instance fro reading your post, you have the libglade2-devel package but not libglade. Your system is most likely hosed from all of the occasions where you used rpm -e package --nodeps. To recover, you most likely need to review your history from the terminal and reinstall the packages again.

Here's a way of checking to see if there are any remaining dependency
issues on your system. You will first need to install the "yum-utils"
package from Fedora Extras:

# yum install yum-utils

The run this:

# package-cleanup --problems

You'll get a report of any remaining broken dependencies.


Thanks for mentioning the problem. I ran the program and the items checked out OK. I'm curious what the output would be for liberally using the --nodeps option on the system. I would not use my system for this test though.

 package-cleanup --problems

Setting up yum
Reading local RPM database
Processing all local requires
No problems found
