After some painstaking manual labor updating packages just a small handful at a time, I realized that I had the 'yum-skip-broken' plugin installed, so a simple 'yum --skip-droken update' command got all the rest of the available updates that would work installed. That left me with just one update that cn not be installed: e2fsprogs, which forces me to update e2fsprogs-devel at the same time. It's the e2fsprogs-devel package that is depending on device-mapper-devel, which doesn't seem to exist in the repos (at least, yum can't find it). -- Lamont Peterson <lamont lamontpeterson org [ http://lamontpeterson.org/ ] GPG Key fingerprint: C51E DD83 B03F D147 A974 939C 5D13 289C 17F1 FFBE
