Can't install Development Tools

Post by clgriffin » 2009/06/28 15:47:36

Hi everybody,

I try to install the Development Tools by [b]yum groupinstall 'Development Tools' [/b] but there is a problem with the dependency of the package systemtap-runtime.

[code]--> Finished Dependency Resolution systemtap-runtime-0.7.2-3.el5_3.i386 from update has
depsolving problems--> Missing Dependency: kernel >= 2.6.9-11 is needed by package systemtap-
runtime-0.7.2-3.el5_3.i386 (update) systemtap-0.7.2-3.el5_3.i386 from update has depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: kernel >= 2.6.9-11 is needed by package systemtap-0.7.2-3.el5_3.i386 (update)
Error: Missing Dependency: kernel >= 2.6.9-11 is needed by package systemtap-runtime-0.7.2-3.el5_3.i386
(update) Error: Missing Dependency: kernel >= 2.6.9-11 is needed by package systemtap-0.7.2-3.el5_3.i386
(update)[/code]

I run CentOS 5.3 with the kernel 2.6.27.10-grsec-xxxx-grs-ipv4-32 #5 SMP

Has anybody a idea how can I solve this problem and install the packages?

Unfortunately, that is [b]not[/b] a [i]CentOS[/i] kernel.

Please boot the distributed kernel-2.6.18-128.1.14.el5 and try the install again.

If the [i]yum groupinstall[/i] command still fails, please post the output returned by the following --

[code]
[b]rpm -q centos-release
yum repolist all
sed -n -e "/^\[/h; /priority *=/{ G; s/\n/ /; s/ity=/ity = /; p }" /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo | sort -k3n[/b]
[/code]

it look like you might be using a ovh http://www.ovh.co.uk/products/rps_offers.xml virtual server with the grsecurity http://www.grsecurity.net/ patch
check your yum.conf you might find it includes exclude=kernel which normally makes sense for virtual machines
you can uncomment this but your actual kernel will never be updated because that is being controlled by your virtualisation platform hypervisor
