I'm getting this error while installing ajenti.

yum install ajenti
    Error: Missing Dependency: python-chardet is needed by package reconfigure-0.1.50-1.noarch (ajenti)

Any idea?

I got the same error and found the solution. It seems happens because EPEL repo is not properly added on your system.

  1. First, check the version of your operating system (CentOS 6.x/5.x? 32-bit/64-bit):

    cat /etc/*-release

  2. Next, add the repo using these few lines:

    CentOS 5.x:

    wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
    wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-5.rpm
    sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-5*.rpm epel-release-5*.rpm

    CentOS 6.x:

    wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
    wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
    sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-6*.rpm epel-release-6*.rpm
  3. Now enable remi:

    vim /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo

    In [remi] change enable=0 to enable=1.

  4. Now type command yum install ajenti and it should succeed.

I have followed same steps. It works only on Centos 6 not working in Centos 5. –  Harikrishnan Jun 28 '14 at 7:33
