Q. I’m using RHEL 4.x as database server. How can I run the up2date command to find out what package will satisfy library / module dependencies via RHN?
A.Update Agent provides a complete system for updating the RPM packages installed on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux system. Both command line and graphical interfaces are included.
Update Agent has a quite a few configuration options, including but not limited to: installing packages after they are downloaded; downloading source RPMs along with binary RPMs; whether or not to upgrade packages where the default configuration file(s) have been modified, and more.
Use the following syntax to query the RHN servers to resolve the comma separated list of dependencies. It will return a list of packages that will satisfy these dependencies:
For example, if an error read as follows:
error: failed dependencies: libxyz.so is needed by httpd libabc.so.1 is needed by httpd
To find out all libs or module dependencies in any of the package, enter:
# up2date --whatprovides=libxyz.so,libabc.so.1
Now just install packagename-1.15:
# up2date packagename
Q. How do I list all packages available for installation from Internet using Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS 5?
A. You can yum command and it has option to show a list of all packages that are not presently installed and can be installed via RHN or Internet.
yum list available
yum list available | less
yum list available | grep package
yum list available “pacakge”
A note about RHEL <= version 4.0
If you are using RHEL v4.0 or old version, use up2date command:
