    yum update - Error:Missing Dependency

    by yum update I am getting a looooooot of messages like Error: Missing Dependecy...
    Error: Missing Dependency: openldap = 2.3.43-12.el5_6.7 is needed by package ope nldap-devel-2.3.43-12.el5_6.7.i386 (installed)

    I try all of that and nothing changed:
    --You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
    --You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
    package-cleanup --dupes
    rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

    If anyone has a solution i would please him to write it...

    Which distribution and which version are you using?
    Are there 3rd_party repositorys or manually installed rpms?
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    What about the 3rd party repos?

    Show this
    yum repolist
    and this
    ls /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo

    I see you an i386 version of openldap-devel package installed, yet your repo claims you are x86_64 - could that be your problem, mixing i386 and x86_64 repos? I'm not sure how you could have done that with yum if you did not use custom yum config files. Did you manually install some i386 RPMS maybe?

    Manually is only NVIDIA driver...everything else is with yum...
