libvirt and libvirt-daemon-xen: failing dependencies

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi all,

I'm trying to install libvirt for xen on a brand new, minimal
installation of CentOS 7.5.1804. After installing the OS, I did a 'yum
update' and followed the basic how-tos at


From previous experience, I know that the above steps worked fine.
However, now on CentOS 7.5, I am seeing the dependency resolution failing.

$ yum install libvirt libvirt-daemon-xen

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I've never seen an error like this before. As far as I read it,
libvirt-daemon-xen wants version 3.2.1 of its dependencies. I've checked
the repositories and it seems that in 'base' and 'updates' we have
version 3.9.0 and in the 'virt' repo we have 3.2.1 of libvirt. Can I
solve this issue on my end? Should I force yum to install the packages
from the 'virt' repo?
