I don't understand why I can't get "libevent-1.1a.so.1? I used yum clean all before I did this and obviously it didn't work?
Appreciate any help I could get.

I believe it to be a conflict between the repos and the way the rpms were packaged. You may have to disable a repo to see where the conflict happens. I've recently had a similar experience and had to disable a repo to get things sorted.

I am getting a message that iptables does not work with my kernal. I wasn't getting this message yesterday.
Does anyone know the command line to fix this error?

thanks, bigmac :confused:

now the message that I am getting is the following:
[robert@localhost ~]$ su -

[root@localhost ~]# yum install libevent-1.1a.so.1

[root@localhost ~]#
This is impossible if the system is telling me that I need to download this in the first place?
What is going on? I am really confused?

yum install libevent

Something is really wrong for my system to be doing this and me trying everything possible and nothing working?
I'm doing everything everyone else would do and it hasn't worked?

There's obviously a problem with a package that has been put up on one of the main repositories. These things happen... and usually get noticed by the maintainers and get worked out in under a day.

The problem is this: you have an older version of libevent installed on your system. You are trying to update it, however the package nfs-utils needs that older version. One solution would be to remove the nfs-utils package and upgrade libevent. The other is to not upgrade libevent and continue with the older version but maintaining nfs-utils.

Thank you whitesuit that's exactly what I just did. I deleted nfs-utils. O.K. thanks. I'm beginning to
see that there is an answer to everything it just takes different ways to get to the solution.
My only question now is: on the command line do I go "yum -y nfs-utils upgrade" ? Just wondering?

Let me know - thanks.

Hmm it depends. If the version on the repositories is already the version you had on your machine and you try to install it again you will go back to the same problem. It will need that older version of libevent. If you just want to update your system you can do: "yum check-update" and then "yum update". This should not cause any problems as you have deleted nfs-utils.

Cheers

Now that I have deleted the old nfs-utils the GUI download automatically downloaded the appropriate files. Thank you all so much for your help.

Same problem, same solution here....

Doh, not so fast. When I did Yum remove nfs-utils, It removed both nfs and nfs-lock from services.
When I tried to re-install nfs, I get the same missing dep message as before. The Yum erase message said nothing about removing anything other than nfs-utils. This is not good. I have lost conectivity with my server!

mount msg:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on 192.168.1.127:/raid/tunes,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Anyone?

I excluded the update for libevent and it worked. I will keep waiting until the dependency is resolved...
