I have a dependency problem while installing nagios-plugins :

yum install nagios-plugins-all


--> Processing Dependency: /usr/bin/sensors for package: nagios-plugins-sensors-1.4.15-7.el6.i686
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: nagios-plugins-sensors-1.4.15-7.el6.i686 (epel)
           Requires: /usr/bin/sensors
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

OS :

  • RHEL 6.1

Installed packages :

  • nagios.i686 3.2.3-3.el6.rf
  • nagios-plugins.i686 1.4.15-7.el6

sensors is part of lm-sensors package. You should be able to install it with simple

yum install lm_sensors

Then try installing nagios again.
