Installing GHEX help requested

Latest response

Hello friends.


 I am a novice user but needed the stability of RHEL6 for the new hardware so I am trying to learn how RHEL6 works and my questions are probably rather simplistic given the situation. Nonetheless I must ask.


libgnomeprintui22.x86_64 is a dependancy that is required to install GHEX


Below is the transaction report for the attempt.  I am not used to Yum failing to install things and I am also unsure as what to do to be correct and safe as the admin of my wonderful RHEL6 system so it is wise to ask first and hack later.




um install ghex
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest


 I asked about this on LinuxQuestions,org and it has been suggested I ask about what package installs the needed files.


 This is the reply I recieved.

It's about the package "libgnomeprintui22.x86_64".

Probably ask Redhat how to activate the Redhat repo with libgnomeprintui22.

 I would rather appear ignorant than mess up my system.  I am an end user who is counting on the professional version that RHEL6 is.




It is true that I am a common user rather than a trained IT professional.


My questions may be simplistic and look as if I am not making an effort but I really am not schooled in what to do.


 I see a Centros version of that package but should I be installing Centros distros for RHEL6?  I would think not.


 Am I missing some package? 


 What doi I do to get the simple program GHex to run on RHEL6 please.


libgnomeprintui22 is available in the "RHEL Workstation Optional (v. 6 for x86_64)" channel. You need to subscribe your system to that channel via the RHN interface.
