FAQ
I have a minimal installation of CentOS, and I wanted to then install X
Windows and the GNOME desktop. I then tried the following, which failed
on a dependency:

$ yum -y groupinstall "X Window System" "GNOME Desktop Environment"

--> Running transaction check
---> Package nautilus-sendto.i386 0:0.7-5.fc6 set to be updated
--> Processing Dependency: libgaim.so.0 for package: nautilus-sendto
---> Package opensp.i386 0:1.5.2-4 set to be updated
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: libgaim.so.0 is needed by package
nautilus-sendto

So GNOME appears to be missing some dependencies in the yum repository.
I finally gave up and installed KDE, which installed flawlessly:

$ yum -y groupinstall "X Window System" "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"

I assume this is a bug with the GNOME packages (required dependency not
found). Is this a CentOS issue, or an "upstream" issue?

Thanks,
Kenneth

    Upstream issue since 5.0 -
    <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id%0403> has more
    information.

    For now do a yum --exclude=nautilus-sendto groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

    This will hopefully be fixed in 5.3
