View Full Version : yum fc5 faq instructions broken?

13th February 2007, 05:09 AM
First I tried to post this down in news where the FAQ stuff was being addressed but can't post a new thread down there.

Anyway, following the directions in the fedora 5 FAQ I get the following :

Last line has the dependancy error ..... Any help?

He just updated it so it looks like you got his FC6 config.

I guess since F7 is almost out he figured no one would be installing FC5 anymore. :p
