Hope this is the right place for this question, but please let me know
if its not.
I'm trying to install rt via yum. I've followed the directions here:
Basically it said to add this to my yum.conf:
--- cut here ---
name=eXtra packages, updates and rt itself
--- end here ---
... and then run this:
yum install rt rt-mail-dispatcher
So, the first few times I ran it, I got messages telling me that various
perl modules that I needed were not installed, and one by one I grabbed
them from cpan.org and installed them.
Well, there is one called Mail::SpamAssassin that it wanted, that I have
installed, that I have verified in perl is already installed and seems
to be accessable. However, this is what yum gives me:
[root at notphilo emily]# yum install rt rt-mail-dispatcher
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: eXtra packages, updates and rt itself
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
......Unable to satisfy dependencies
Package rt needs perl(Mail::SpamAssassin), this is not available.
[root at notphilo emily]#
Grr! So, I know its there, but yum isn't picking up on that I guess. Is
there some way for me to tell it to ignore dependancies, or get around
Thanks for any info!
