http://forums.fedoraforum.org – What would cause missing dependencies? I thought the whole idea of the package manager is that if you try to install a package (through the package manager) it should know about all of the dependencies and offer to install them? Code: sudo yum install kdebase-workspace* .....  --> Missing Dependency: qt = 1:4.5.2-3.fc11 is needed by package 1:qt-mysql-4.5.2-3.fc11.i586 (updates) Error: Missing Dependency: qt = 1:4.5.2-3.fc11 is needed by package 1:qt-mysql-4.5.2-3.fc11.i586 (updates) Error: Missing Dependency: kdepimlibs = 4.3.1-1.fc11 is needed by package kdepimlibs-akonadi-4.3.1-1.fc11.i586 (updates) I'm not so interested in how to fix these as to why the package manager doesn't always seem to know what to do?
