Hi all, 

The following is for Fedora systems only: 

I've been working the last couple of days on a LONCAPA-prerequisites rpm.  
This rpm only specifies the dependencies and conflicts for LONCAPA and does 
not contain any LONCAPA code.  Nevertheless it will be a useful way for us 
to keep the Fedora machines up to date with our every growing list of 

Please modify your /etc/yum.conf file to contain the following two entries 
(note: this is different from my earlier yum.conf instructions): 

name= Fedora Core $releasever LON-CAPA i386 Updates

name= Fedora Core $releasever LON-CAPA noarch Updates

Once that is done issue the following commands to get and install the 
LONCAPA dependencies: 

# yum update 

# yum install LONCAPA-prerequisites 

Please get back to me if you run into any trouble or have any difficulty.
