Question Why does yum return this?

Can someone please explain this to me?

Yum now knows that the desired app is in the extras repo, so...

Hmm.. what's wrong with this picture?


I know for certain that gnome-applet-timer is in the extras repo because yum found it and returned info about it. So, if the app is in a repo that I have enabled, and yum is checking, why does yum not install that app, yet I can get info about that app? This is, by the way, the second time I ran that command. I ran that command for the first time just after a "yum update" and "yum clean all".

"Nothing to do" from yum install means that the package is already installed. Try "rpm -q gnome-applet-timer" or "yum list gnome-applet-timer".

It isn't installed.

Just keep trying to install it repeatedly; some mirrors may not be as updated as other mirrors.

The thing that hinted to me that one mirror had it and the other didn't was that when you found it in the search, it "added 39 packages"; but then when you tried to install it again, for that mirror, it said "removed 39 packages". Apparently your package is new and it's one of the "39 packages" that some mirrors don't have yet.

Thank you very much for your insight, you taught me something new and I appreciate it

It isn't installed.

When it's not installed it gives the following msg

Quote:
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -q gnome-applet-timer
package gnome-applet-timer is not installed
Perhaps no msg when installed (I did not install it yet)
