I don't care about 'stax-bea'! This was added on later. I
added this to the --exclude list and then there was another
dependency. Add that, then another and the list seems long
and I gave up after the 5th try because it was expanding into
a hive of dependencies!
So - in a nutshell... I cannot proceed with the simplest
updates! Again, you cannot enable fpackage-fc because it
does not exists. Someone wrote that its there for fc1-fc4
but you are out of luck for fc5. So - I disabled that and
tried [generic] and now disabled that. So - no updates are
possible for me at this time.
JPackage-discuss mailing list
OK, This is what I have done so far:
1) Downloaded: dom4j-1.6.1-1jpp.rpm
forced installed with no dependencies
2) Enabled jpackage repo [generic]
Note: 1) In jpackage, there is both a bea-stax and stax-bea - confusing.
Cannot install this package no matter what I tried to do.
2) castor-depends is looking for: castor-0.9.6-2jpp and
it does not exist.
3) Cannot overwrite fc5's geronimo-specs\*
All files are updated except those excluded above.
