I am trying to install a package but this package needs to some dependencies. You can see installation output at below.

error: Failed dependencies:
    jack-audio-connection-kit = is needed by jack-audio-connection-kit-devel-
    libjack.so.0()(64bit) is needed by jack-audio-connection-kit-devel-
    libjacknet.so.0()(64bit) is needed by jack-audio-connection-kit-devel-
    libjackserver.so.0()(64bit) is needed by jack-audio-connection-kit-devel-

I searched jack-audio-connection-kit package after I got this log. I found here some instructions for jack-audio-connection-kit package.

I looked at how to install. This document tells something like that.

Download the latest epel-release rpm from

Install epel-release rpm:
# rpm -Uvh epel-release*rpm

Install jack-audio-connection-kit rpm package:
# yum install jack-audio-connection-kit

I couldn't understand how to install all packages because this link is just a link, not a RPM package.

My Question

jack-audio-connection-kit package is just an example. I want to install all packages at this link. Is there an easy way to do this?

  • dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/Packages ... is a link to the EPEL downloads : a b c ... x y z . Click a letter to watch the packages. ... Why would you want to install all 11,990 EPEL packages ? ( Eleven thousand nine hundred and ninety ) ... yum list all | grep epel will show the EPEL package list. – Knud Larsen Nov 14 '17 at 12:12

This is the easy way - the YUM way. The hard and painfull way would be to solve dependencies manually.

If you'd searched for the epel-release RPM, you'd have find it in this path:


When you import it with the rpm -Uvh as adviced, it'd create the EPEL repo file in your /etc/yum.repos.d directory. It should be enabled by default, however you can check. Then all the content of EPEL 7 repository is available (including required jack-audio-connection-kit* packages).


Try installing the epel-release with yum.

yum install epel-release
