Question about Yum (installing RStudio)

First off, we're on a corporate firewall and thus I do not have the option of using all the available sources that would undoubtedly make this much easier.

I'll try to make this question simple.

When I try to install my package, I get the following errors (errors pulled out of larger output):

sudo yum install --nogpgcheck rstudio-server-0.97.551-x86_64.rpm

Error: Package: rstudio-server-0.97.551-1.x86_64 (/rstudio-server-0.97.551-x86_64)
Error: Package: rstudio-server-0.97.551-1.x86_64 (/rstudio-server-0.97.551-x86_64)
Error: Package: rstudio-server-0.97.551-1.x86_64 (/rstudio-server-0.97.551-x86_64)

Open in new window

The thing is, I already compiled/installed another package earlier that includes all these dependencies, which are located on the box here:


I'm confident that these are the correct dependencies... but how do I get Yum to recognize them???

Try this

rpm -Uvh --nodeps rstudio-server-0.97.551-x86_64.rpm

With "--nodeps" there is possibility that rstudio-server will not find libs you compiled and installed in /opt. In that case you'll have to use ldconfig.
Better way is to build rpm package with these libs.

Are you allowed for installation purposes to circumvent the corporate firewall?
First check what arch is installed in your system. To me it seems i686 hence when you are installing 64bit package it is giving issue.

So search i686 version for rstudio.

While this worked for us; my colleagues think that resolving the dependencies would have been a better approach (if we could have figured out how to do so).
