I'm having difficulty installing a bunch of packages from the Add/Remove Applications program in RedHad 9. When it checks for dependencies, it complains that gtkhtml 1.1.8-5 is not installed (it's required by gtkhtml-devel). However, when I run
$ rpm -q gtkhtml
the output I get is
which is a newer version.

Of course, I can't uninstall the current version because Evolution is using it (athough I'm not using Evolution, but I bet the dependencies don't stop there).

Does anyone have any idea how I can get around this problem?

I can imagine the dependacy hell you will put yourself in if you attempt to uninstall evolution.

My suggestion would be to go to and look for the gtkhtml-1.1.9-0.9 developtment package and install that manually.

Yet another reason to use Debian smile.gif
