Centos 6 x2go dependancy issues when trying to run yum update

dgibbs asked:

I have tried to update x2goserver to the latest version on my CentOS server however I am getting a dependency issues now.

From what I can tell it is looking for xorg-x11-fonts-core package. This appears to not be part of CentOS 6 and only OpenSuse. Has anyone else had this issue? Do you think it is a bug with the latest RPM’s or is there anything I can do to resolve the issue? x2go does not have a forum so I thought I would post here

[root@fileserver$ ~]# yum install x2goserver

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

My answer:


Something is wrong with your locally cached copy of the repository metadata:

X11_RemoteDesktop_x2go                                                                                                                | 1.3 kB     00:00
Not using downloaded repomd.xml because it is older than what we have:
  Current   : Tue Feb 26 11:43:35 2013
  Downloaded: Thu Feb 21 18:44:54 2013

When I went to inspect the original, I found it indeed did have a date of Feb 21. Where you got the cached file you have, I could not begin to say.

To resolve the issue, clear your yum cache.

yum clean all
