I'm trying to install iptux in CentOS by using

yum install ip*

it causes the following error

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: samba4-winbind conflicts with samba-winbind-3.6.9-167.el6_5.x86_64
Error: samba4-common conflicts with samba-common-3.6.9-167.el6_5.x86_64
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
** Found 1 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:
libstdc++6-gcc47-32bit-4.7.3_20130411-5.4.x86_64 has installed conflicts libstdc++6-32bit: libstdc++6-gcc47-32bit-4.7.3_20130411-5.4.x86_64

How can this error be resolved?

  • Which repositories you have enabled? Is there a reason why you couldn't update samba-winbind and samba-common to samba4-winbind and samba4-common?

  • I don't which repository I'm using. how to know this? Mar 17, 2014 at 10:26
  • I'm using yum repository Mar 17, 2014 at 10:27
  • Peek into /etc/yum.repos.d. The repositories are defined in simple text files which should be quite understandable even if the format itself is something you're not familiar with. The point I'm trying to make with repositories is: if you have several repositories which provide same packages, this might lead to a situation you're experiencing.

Is there any reason you're running

yum install ip*

to install iptux, rather than

yum install iptux


The first command will install every package beginning with ip - which, while it will almost definitely include iptux, will also include many many other packages you probably do not want - presumably somewhere inside that glob are packages with conflicting dependencies, hence the error.

The second will install iptux and its dependencies.

  • if you try yum install iptux it showing some error No package iptux available. Error: Nothing to do Mar 17, 2014 at 11:33
  • Ah, ok. We'll need to know which version of CentOS you're running - cat /etc/redhat-release will tell you. Most likely the yum repositories you have configured - the collections of software you can install packages from - simply do not have iptux available, but you should be able to add a repo. that does :) Mar 17, 2014 at 11:37
  • Scratch previous comment - it looks like there are no iptux packages for CentOS. You'll have to build it from source, sorry. Mar 17, 2014 at 11:43
  • how to install iptux please let me know. Mar 17, 2014 at 11:45
