I just installed FC-5 on a new disk, and when I tried "yum update" it failed because, it reported, kdebase required htdig . On the other hand, I can update kdebase on other FC-5 systems which I have kept up-to-date. It doesn't particularly matter - I as able to update nearly everything by "yum update [a-j]\*", etc, but I am puzzled why this problem arises, and interested to know if there is a simple way of determining exactly what is looking for what? (It seemed that other packages were looking for htdig.)
I think i have seen this before, some dependencies are not resolved by YUM it just inform you do not have it, but do not fetch it. What i did in that situations is to *manually* install the required package. $ yum install htdig and then $ yum update try it. regards, Guillermo.
