View Full Version : Need help installing packages from CD
22nd October 2004, 05:37 PM
I have core 2 running. I go to install the development tools through package manager and it gives me the error that it cannot find the cyrus-sasl package. I downloaded this package from the redhat/fedora server and tried to install it but it says that it is already installed. Any ideas?

See if it really is installed. Go to a terminal (Main Menu > System Tools > Terminal) and run rpm -q cyrus-sasl You can verify the package with rpm --verify cyrus-sasl
Maybe it's easiest to reinstall. yum remove and yum install would remove and reinstall it.

I have the same problem. Have you been able to solve it?
rpm -q cyrus-sasl
I get no output when I type
rpm --verify cyrus-sasl
Is this supposed to be that way?
If I would uninstall it with
yum remove cyrus-sasl
yum would remove a lot of other packages too (printer packages, samba, etc), so I did not do it since I was afraid that this could destroy all my configurations and scramble my system.
Any ideas how I can solve this problem?

I thought about this once more. If I uninstall the cyrus-sasl package with rpm ignoring all the dependencies so that just this package is uninstalled and then reinstall it again - would this do any harm to my system?

--verify has no output by default when the package passes.
If you force an upgrade, it should reinstall over the existing package without much dependency problems. rpm --force -U cyrus-sasl*
