Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
i used to be able to install and use VirtualBox with either the RedHat 4 build rpm or the .run file. Now, since trying to upgrade to 3.0.8, I get an error from RPM or YUM:
[root@notready ~]# yum install VirtualBox Loaded plugins: changelog, downloadonly, ibm-additional-metadata, ibm-cds- : plugin, ibm-house-cleaning, ibm-repository, ibm-security, ibm- : upgrade-oc, security Setting up Install Process Resolving Dependencies --> Running transaction check ---> Package VirtualBox.i386 0:3.0.8_53138_rhel4-1 set to be updated --> Processing Dependency: libpython2.3.so.1.0 for package: VirtualBox --> Finished Dependency Resolution VirtualBox-3.0.8_53138_rhel4-1.i386 from virtualbox has depsolving problems --> Missing Dependency: libpython2.3.so.1.0 is needed by package VirtualBox-3.0.8_53138_rhel4-1.i386 (virtualbox) Error: Missing Dependency: libpython2.3.so.1.0 is needed by package VirtualBox-3.0.8_53138_rhel4-1.i386 (virtualbox) You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: package-cleanup --problems package-cleanup --dupes rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest [root@notready ~]#
I can't find libphthon2 in our standard RedHat 5 repositories via YUM, but we do have python installed.
When using the .run file instead of the rpm, I get a message that the X86 environment is unsupported.
