Resolution

Overview

If you are seeing this page, it is probably because you tried to search for something in PackageKit, but it could not find what you were looking for. Look at the contents below to find information about specific issues you might encounter.

Missing Package

Unfortunately, the package you were searching for is not available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

If you would like to request functionality or a package for addition to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, please contact your Red Hat support representative.

Missing Codec

Unfortunately, the codec you were searching for is not available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. A codec is a program that enables encoding and/or decoding of a data stream, in a specific format such as Vorbis, MP3, WMV, or VP8.

There are a few common reasons why a codec might not be in Red Hat Enterprise Linux:

  • Many codecs are only available through third-party vendors due to licensing reasons.

If you would like to request that a particular codec be made available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, please contact your Red Hat support representative.

Missing Driver

Unfortunately, the driver you were searching for is not available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

There are a few common reasons why a driver might not be available:

  • Some drivers are proprietary or only available from a hardware vendor.
  • Some hardware may not be supported under Linux yet, or is not yet in the upstream Linux kernel.

If you would like to request that a particular driver be made available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, please contact your Red Hat support representative.

Missing Font

Unfortunately, the font you were searching for is not available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

If you would like a particular font to be available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, please contact your Red Hat support representative.

Missing MIME Support

Unfortunately, there is no support in Red Hat Enterprise Linux for the MIME type you were searching for. There are a few common reasons why there may not be support for a MIME type:

  • Some MIME types are only supported by third-party software.
  • Some MIME types are only supported on platforms other than Red Hat Enterprise Linux, such as Windows.

If you would like to request support for a particular MIME type in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, please contact your Red Hat support representative.
