    Package Management problem!


    Best Regards Team and Happy Holidays..!!!

    I'm so-so new to LINUX so pardon my ignorance...

    I'm using RH FC3. Performed an "up2date" and everyhting went fine. Now when trying to add a "package" I get the following error:

    The following packages could not be found on your system. Installation cannot continue until they are installed.
    libselinux
    libxml2
    I already went to the RD Fedora site and downloaded the packages again but I get message "The package is already installed".

    Then I tryed using the "console" but seems like the "packages" are installed and up to date

    [root@fedora robert]# yum install libselinux
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up Repo: base
    repomd.xml 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
    Setting up Repo: updates-released
    repomd.xml 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    base : ################################################## 2622/2622

    updates-re: ################################################## 327/327
    Nothing to do
    [root@fedora robert]#
    Just the message "Nothing to do"

    Any ideas/advice will be really appreciated.

    i assume you're talking about rpm when you say "whenever i try to install a package"
    try:
    Code:
    rpm -i --force package.rpm
