Dependency issues when installing xCAT 2.7 on CentOS 6


If you are using the yum install for xCAT 2.7 on CentOS 6, you will need the .repo and putting in /etc/yum.repos.d/

# wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/xcat/files/yum/stable/xcat-core/xCAT-core.repo
# wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/xcat/files/yum/xcat-dep/rh6/x86_64/xCAT-dep.repo

Do a yum check-update

Do a yum install of xCAT ie

# yum install xCAT

You might get the error
