 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.

Please suggest me the commands to solve this dependency.

The problem is clearly stated:

--> Missing Dependency: perl(URI::URL) is needed by package 7:squid-2.6.STABLE21-3.el5.x86_64 (base)

Download and install perl-URI. This is for CentOS 5 so be sure to get the package for your distro.

rpm -ivh perl-URI-1.35-3.noarch.rpm

Open in new window

"RedHat Linux" is like saying my OS is "Windows Server". Which distribuion do you have? RedHat Linux Enterprise 3? RedHat Linux 9?

I see from your answer you know googling then it must not be hard to google "RedHat Linux Perl URI package" after reading my answer.

Here pick your distribution and download it.

indianbill007, that was somewhat a rude reply to someone trying to help you out.

1. wget ... f.i386.rpm
2. rpm --import
3. rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
4. yum check-update
5. yum install squid
