yum install not working for "gnome-libs"

Post by user505 » 2010/09/09 13:00:45


I am using CentOS5.5 and I want to install few packages through yum.

like gnome-libs,XFree-libs etc. But when I run “yum install gnome-libs” it gives no
package available.

Can you suggest me how to update yum to make these package available?

Welcome to the CentOS fora. The following reading is recommended for new users:

After reading the above you should understand that you should not dual (much less triple) post. Your [url=https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?viewmode=flat&topic_id=28013&forum=37]other thread[/url] has been locked.

CentOS uses xorg not Xfree86. One possibility:
$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/libX11.so

As for Gnome:
$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/libgnome-2.so

What are you trying to accomplish?

Edit: Now [url=https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?viewmode=flat&topic_id=28015&forum=49]this other one[/url] locked too.

So what you want is Oracle. Moving this thread to that Forum.
