Is there a way to tell rpm to go off and search a specific
no. Rpm only acts on specific packages.
If they are not installed 'yum install packagename' should pull
them in - and you can list both packages in one command.
Except that he is trying to install yum. ;)
tried rpm --whatprovides yum but that evidently is not
It's not apparent from the help file, but I think the command is
'rpm -q whatprovides ....' but I don't think that would have
helped in this situation. I'd try

yum install pygpgme python-iniparse yum
No yum installed there for him. ;) Dave: Try the following:
rpm -ivh
http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os//Packages/pygpgme-0.1-8.fc9.i386.rpm http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os//Packages/python-iniparse-0.2.3-3.fc9.noarch.rpm

All on one big long line. ;) Not sure if there are further deps, but hopefully that will get yum installed for you.
Thanks Kevin......

In the order you listed the rpms, the yum failed needing pygpgme....
So I tried installing them t'other way around:

[root localhost ~]# rpm -ivh http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os//Packages/pygpgme-0.1-8.fc9.i386.rpm http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os//Packages/python-iniparse-0.2.3-3.fc9.noarch.rpm http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/updates/9/i386.newkey//yum-3.2.20-5.fc9.noarch.rpm Retrieving http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os//Packages/pygpgme-0.1-8.fc9.i386.rpm Retrieving http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os//Packages/python-iniparse-0.2.3-3.fc9.noarch.rpm Retrieving http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/updates/9/i386.newkey//yum-3.2.20-5.fc9.noarch.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:

[root localhost ~]#

Any idea where the so.11 files might be?? (or how with my limited knowledge of the remnants of my system, I should go about finding the deps??))

You also need:

it sounds like.
Thanks again



Thanks again Kevin.... It seems that each time you give me another lead, rpm wants another 2 or 3 files...... It'd be alright if I could find a readable list of what is required to install an rpm!
