Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2004-07-16 06:05:08 EDT

Is this the same as or related to what I get in FC3 Test1 when trying
to add KDE?

Packages Not Found
Unlocatable package         Required by
/usr/X11R6/bin/xauth        ('xorg-x11','6.7.0','6')
system-config-securitylevel ('firstboot','1.3.16','1')

Console output:

I get the same error when I attempt to add Development Tools on an up
to date system.

The following packages could not be found on your system. 
Installation cannot continue until they are installed.
 libselinux ('system-config-securitylevel', '1.4.18','2')
 krb5-libs ('krb5-workstation','1.3.6','2')
 pam ('sane-backends','1.0.15','1.4')
 libxml2 ('libxml2-python','2.6.16','3')

`rpm -q libselinux system-config-securitylevel krb5-libs
krb5-workstation pam sane-backends libxml2 libxml2-python`
> libselinux-1.19.1-8.i386
> system-config-securitylevel-1.4.18-2.i386
> krb5-libs-1.3.6-2.i386
> krb5-workstation-1.3.6-2.i386
> pam-0.77-66.1.i386
> sane-backends-1.0.15-1.4.i386
> libxml2-2.6.16-3.i386
> libxml2-python-2.6.16-3.i386 
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-09-21 15:49:08 EDT
This is caused by updates which s-c-p never finds out about.  The next gen tool
(which will land in FC5) will not have this problem
