After installing Trixbox on my VirtualBox to mess around with, I noticed that many packages were out of date so I went to update those packages.
After typing yum update, yum did it’s thing but halted before installing anything with the following message:
Missing Dependency: libcares.so.1 is needed by package sipsak-0.9.6-1.el5.i386 (installed)
Error: Missing Dependency: libcares.so.1 is needed by package sipsak-0.9.6-1.el5.i386 (installed)
Your going to have to install these manually before yum will be able to handle them. Use the following commands to download and install these packages.
rpm -Uhv sipsak-0.9.6-8.el5.i386.rpm c-ares-1.6.0-2.el5.i386.rpm
If you don’t have time to deal with these and would prefer to continue installing all other updates, you can tell yum to ignore broken dependencies by using the argument –skip-broken.
yum update –skip-broken
