Hi,

Complete Linux noob here. Trying to install cPanel on a new server. I downloaded the

cPanel-CentOS-6.4-x86_64.iso (Mon May 13 16:33:39 2013)

file, ran it, answered the few questions there were, and then was prompted with the following:

Some of the packages you have selected for install are missing dependencies. You can exit the installation, go back and change your package selections, or continue installing these packages without their dependencies.

kernel conflicts with bfa-firmware-3.0.3.1-1.el6.noarch
nss-3.15.3-6.el6_5.x86_64 requires nss-softokn(x86-64) >=
3.14.3
mesa-dri-drivers-9.2-0.5.el6_5.2.x86_64 requires
libLLVM-3.3-mesa.so()(64bit)
mesa-dri-drivers-9.2-0.5.el6_5.2.x86_64 requires
libLLVM-3.3-mesa.so(libLLVM-3.3-mesa.so)(64bit)

I was then given the choice of exiting the installer or continuing, and I continued. After that, the CD installed the rest of the OS to the system and everything else went pretty much ok.

My question is: are the aforementioned errors (missing dependencies) going to negatively affect me? Is this just an error that the installer spits out? Is it something that the system will automatically download and rectify after the OS is installed, so I won't have to worry about it? Or, once everything is said and done, will I find out that I can't do some fundamental thing, like serve pages?

Any help anyone can give me about this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hello :)

You should be able to determine if there are any existing package conflicts by running the following command:

Code:
yum update
Thank you.

Yes, that typically indicates there are no package conflicts. Of course, you could also notice errors when cPanel updates if there were conflicts when updating/installing new packages, but since you have reported no issues with cPanel updates, I don't foresee you experiencing any problems.

Thank you.

I've gotten the same problem when I used cPanel-CentOS-6.4-x86_64.iso .

That CD is suboptimal. First of all, if I remember, it installs MySQL. Any CentOS-cPanel combo ISO designed specifically to install the whole ball of wax shouldn't be installing MySQL,or Postfix. Those were just two things off the top of my head, not to mention it wanting to install various things like mesa drivers? Seriously?

I'm beginning to wonder if it's not better to download the latest CentOS ISO itself, install CentOS, and then download the cPanel installer. That's how I've always done it, but I was excited when I saw the cPane-CentOS ISO as I thought it would install just what I needed and nothing more. I don't think that it is.
