Updating mandrake packages
Sure would be nice if it could find it's own dependencies. Looking through the RPMS, I installed all over again the packages without force and found the dependencies to make them work correctly. Somehow, the Software Sources Manager started working and updated my new updates CD.
Mike I don't know what's on that CD, or if there are instructions or what, but if all the rpms are in the one directory, and it's been properly set up with all dependencies present, I'd try something like mounting the CD, and entering the directory where the rpms are, and typing: rpm -Uvh *If it still complains about dependencies, and you feel lucky (this could break some of the software if dependencies are really not met) rpm -Uvh --nodeps *My guess is that you don't have all the packages installed that contain dependencies that these rpms you're trying to install need. This made installation of updates easy since it was now locating the needed dependencies.
I purchased a CD from contains every update available for 9.1 as of 8-20-03. The first thing I did was update urpmi and grpmi - no problems.
Then, I tried to update evolution and it failed due to dependencies.
Status: Red Hat has announced the availability of a new upgrade to the company's Enterprise Linux line of products.

Once you have ticked the applications that you want installed, you just need to click "Update" to install.
Change the discs as you are prompted, and once this is done, you will have the software installed.
Yum will report if it finds xargs, and if its successful, performing,# yum install xargswill be all that is required.If xargs calls for any dependencies, it will be resolved automatically, and those packages get pulled in automatically too.
