I'm trying to install mercurial in my Fedora 14 using yum and get the following error.help to resolve this.

 yum --enablerepo=rpmforge --disablerepo=remi --disablerepo=fedora  install     mercurial.i386
 Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
 Adding en_US to language list
 Repository fedora is listed more than once in the configuration

 --> Processing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.4 for package: mercurial-1.9.2-1.el5.rf.i386
 --> Finished Dependency Resolution
 Error: Package: mercurial-1.9.2-1.el5.rf.i386 (rpmforge)
       Requires: python(abi) = 2.4
       Installed: python-2.7-8.fc14.1.i686 (@fedora/$releasever)
           python(abi) = 2.7
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Remove the RPMForge repository data permanently. You should not be using a EL repo on a Feroda machine. Please mind the bitness of your operating system, i686 means 32-bit. If you have a problem then log a bug in RH's Bugzilla requesting a version upgrade to the packages in the repository.

  • You mean disablerepo?

  • I've removed, but while yum list 'mercurial' , I end up some .i686 only. mine is 32 bit
