Centos :: Can't remove / delete package

Kevin Gorjan asked:

On my server I’m running PHP 5.5.1. I would like to install php-gd, but when I’m trying to install it, it always says:

yum install php-gd
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirrors.supportex.net
 * epel: mirror.1000mbps.com
 * extras: mirrors.supportex.net
 * updates: mirrors.supportex.net

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

it seems that the php-gd package is available on the server for php 5.3. I can’t delete or removed it from the server. I’ll always receive this message: Package(s) php-gd available, but not installed.

Can someone help me with this?

Thanks in advance.

My answer:


You installed PHP from the remi-test repository. It is disabled by default. You should re-enable this repository if you want to install further PHP packages from it.
