Description Dale Lovelace 2000-02-24 20:44:51 UTC
Using up2date trying to get the "Snapshot" off of ftp.beta.redhat.com
works fine for small numbers of packages (2 or 3), but fails with this
error when you choose the "Select All Packages" option:

Could not resolve dependencies. Either the packages required are
unavilable, or your 'depTries' configuration option needs to be increased.

  This is with the "Attempts to resolve dependencies" option in the up2date
client set to 10. You can't set this option higher than 10. The default is
3. The client does go through 10 iterations of resolving dependencies.

I'll look into this Dale.
