I think i have seen this before,
some dependencies are not resolved by YUM it just inform you do not
have it, but do not fetch it.
What i did in that situations is to *manually* install the required
$ yum install htdig
$ yum update
Thanks for your response.
I tried your recipe, but unfortunately it did not work.
I found in the end that somewhere along the line
I lost /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-core.repo ,
goodness knows where or how.
I looked this up on a working FC-5 system,
and found it came with fedora-release-5.5 .
When I downloaded this and ran "rpm --force -ivh fedora-release-5.5"
all was well.
