Problem with yum

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I find yum a marvelous resource, so the following should not be taken
as even a mild criticism.

I recently tried to download gnokii-devel,
but I was told this required an older version of gnokii than I had,
as shown below.
I'm not sure where I got the "fc8" version I have -
I don't normally open any non-standard repositories,
but I might have done so in error.

I tested "yum remove gnokii" but this would have removed
dozens of packages.

I'm just wondering: what is the standard way of dealing with this
yum quandary, if indeed there is a way?

[[email protected] ~]$ sudo yum install gnokii-devel
Resolving Dependencies

[[email protected] ~]$ grep gnokii /var/log/rpmpkgs
