packages through Pirut or yum, it lists the dependencies and you will
have to confirm before any package gets removed from the system. I am
curious to know why you find it unusable in this instance.
First, as I illustrated in a previous message "FC6 update mystery, yum
in FC6 simply does not work. Despite I have all the reposa installed you
