I am trying to install the mcrypt extension on my CentOS 6 VPS. I have done the EPEL rpm and then updated everything. Now, I keep getting this error and I’ve also installed php-api.
[[email protected] ~]# yum -y install php-mcrypt Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: mirror.raystedman.net * epel: mirror.oss.ou.edu * extras: mirror.teklinks.com * updates: bay.uchicago.edu Setting up Install Process Resolving Dependencies --> Running transaction check ---> Package php-mcrypt.x86_64 0:5.1.6-5.el5 will be installed --> Processing Dependency: php-api = 20041225 for package: php-mcrypt-5.1.6-5.el5.x86_64 --> Finished Dependency Resolution Error: Package: php-mcrypt-5.1.6-5.el5.x86_64 (epel) Requires: php-api = 20041225 Installed: php-common-5.3.3-23.el6_4.x86_64 (@updates) php-api = 20090626 Available: php-common-5.3.3-22.el6.x86_64 (base) php-api = 20090626 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
AmI skipping/missing something important? Please don’t down vote this.
You installed the wrong EPEL RPM.
You are running CentOS 6, but you installed the epel-release RPM for EPEL 5.
Remove it and install the RPM for EPEL 6.
