I'm trying to install some dependencies for
yum. I've found, for example boost via
yum search boost which gives me (after a load of fails as the PC not on the web, but has a local repository somewhere...on the network...I think):
boost.x86_64 : The free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries
But when I go to try
yum localinstall boost* I get nothing 'file does not end with RPM, skipping', likewise
find boost* gives nothing.
Should my yum command work, and this is a sign that it's not on the network? Or is it on there and I'm not using the right command to find the path to the rpm for it? Bottom line: How can I use yum to install a local file I found using
I should mention, running
yum install boost* fails as I cannot get on the web. This still leaves me wondering: The
yum search result is not local (as per Ignacio's comment), and it's not installed (
which are drawing up blanks, as is
locate) nor can I even reach a repo. So what is
yum search finding, and how do I install it?
