I'm trying to install 389 on Centos 6, following this:
The guide makes it out to be as simple as "configure EPEL, then
execute yum install 389-ds".
Instead, the install dies with yum not able to find a dozen or two
dependencies, all of them perl, it looks like:
...and so on (Dialog, DSMigration, Migration, DSUpdate etc.)
I've tried both EPEL release, and EPEL testing. I can't seem to find
anyone else complaining about these issues, so I'm guessing I'm
missing something. Any suggestions?
Don't take this as authoritative, I'm not on the 389-ds team.
I think the problem is that 389-ds-base was added to RHEL as a base
package in 6.1 so if it gets added to epel there is going to be a conflict.
You can probably get the missing src rpms from
Finding the right package for perl dependencies seems to be more an art
than a skill. The names don't always line up nicely. One hint is that
the DS* requirements are provided by 389-ds-base itself.
