I am trying to install fedora as a
domU under a CentOS
dom0 using the method outlined in The Book of Xen. I have asked another question regarding a consistent error message of cpio: Bad magic when I try to run the rpm command on a fedora-release-15.1 rpm. That tutorial actually goes through an install of CentOS 5.2 into the logical volume. If I run
wget on a similar CentOS install
rpm then run the
rpm -i command (as outlined) it works fine.
So what is it about rpm and fedora under CentOS 5.6 that would cause an issue? running the
--test option returns the following:
[root@localhost fedRoot]# rpm -ivh --test --root /mnt/fedRoot fedora-release-15-1.noarch.rpm warning: fedora-release-15-1.noarch.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 signature: NOKEY, key ID 069c8460 error: Failed dependencies: fedora-release-rawhide = 15-1 is needed by fedora-release-15-1.noarch rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1 is needed by fedora-release-15-1.noarch rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1 is needed by fedora-release-15-1.noarch
What do these failed dependencies mean? Is it even possible to do what I am trying to do (install fedora on a separate LV in an active CentOS system)? Is it possible to update these dependencies in my system? or is it time to call it quits on this particular path...
