I am trying to deal with keeping our RHEL 5 server patched up, but also dealing with our security constraints. This particular server is not allowed to talk to the Internet. So yum isn't really an option.
When we get RHN Alerts, I manually go to Red Hat's portal and view the available packages via Classic Management, and download the necessary RPM's to my workstation, then I FTP them onto the server. This all works well and fine, until a particular dependency is needed that's not included in the packages. For example...
root@myserver:~/rhn-packages $ rpm -Uvh *.rpm error: Failed dependencies: libfontenc.so.1 is needed by libXfont-1.2.2-1.0.5.el5_10.i386
Searching in Red Hat's packages for libfontenc doesn't get me anywhere. How do I go about getting this dependency installed?
