Description of problem:
I went to install mugshot from http://mugshot.org/download . The RPM downloaded
and s-i-p started, but bailed because of a missing 'loudmouth' package, which is
easily available in Extras. It should have said something like "I need an extra
package to be able to install this. Want me to do that, or just quit?"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It should and did for me -- did you have extras enabled?
Yeah, I did. I realized that the issue was probably that I was on an x86_64, and
the mugshot package was i386. It looks like the problem was that loudmouth.i386
dodesn't exist in that tree. Sorry; closing!
