Installing common support repos Question

Latest response


 I am finding that using Yum to install things comes up short on dependancies.


 In fact Yum reports broken dependancies if I have the discription correct.


 Is there some common repositories of libraries and such for Gnome and other common RHEL6 I should install?


 Is there proper repos to use instead of hunting dependancies down one by one across the internet?


I'm looking at manually install ing about 40 packages just to get Ghex and Gcalctool 2.6 installed and I figure there has got to be a better way since I am paying and those with free versions are riding it easy with Yum installing everything as needed.


 I am a common user more than a sys admin so I have to ask.



 What does this mean?


  yum install libgnomeprint22-2.18.6-4.el6.x86_64.rpm
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


 Is there some group I can install.


 I doiscovered installgroup for Yum and added compatability libraries but I still have that problem.


Hi Ernst,


you can find the specific package here:


But it would make more sense to subscribe your workstation to the optional channel for workstation:
