I am doing a system wide yum update on RHEL 5.5 and the IUS EPEL repository is throwing a missing dependency error:
php53-mcrypt-5.3.3-4.ius.el5.x86_64 from installed has depsolving problems --> Missing Dependency: php53-common = 5.3.3-4.ius.el5 is needed by package php53-mcrypt- 5.3.3-4.ius.el5.x86_64 (installed) Error: Missing Dependency: php53-common = 5.3.3-4.ius.el5 is needed by package php53-mcrypt-5.3.3-4.ius.el5.x86_64 (installed)
Is there is a way to run YUM update against all the other repositories ignoring the IUS EPEL repo to skip this dependency issue?
I am trying to install the updates from the Redhat Network only. I cannot find the repo name so I am unable to do something like
sudo yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rhel update as the version of yum I am using does not support multiple repositories listed after
My temporary workaround is to run
sudo yum --exclude=php53* update. I am convinced that there is a better way. This better way includes fixing the actual problem, so I filed a bug with the IUS Community Project as well.
Looks like I found the issue with the dependency. I still think there should be a viable workaround.
