I've got the RPM for 0.23 but it has a bunch of dependencies so I need to track down the RPMS for those, too, so I was wondering if I can do this in yum? I've seen an old thread about installing a yum-allowdowngrade package but that doesn't seem to be available any more. Can I do this in yum or do I need to track down all the RPMS?
There are lots of mythtv rpms [rpmfusion, atrpms etc.] so I'm not sure which 0.23 one you are referring to?
In the mean time:
From a terminal logged in as root, change directory to where you have your RPM for 0.23
Type and enter the following
yum localinstall *.rpm
Yum will sort through and attempt to satisfying the dependencies and then ask you if you want to proceed or not.
and post the output.
