Default Tell yum that a package is installed


I just built and installed iptables from source, and now I want to use
yum to install some other packages that depend on iptables. But yum
doesn't recognize that iptables is already installed, and it's wants
to install over it. Is there a way I can force yum to know it's
already there?

Thanks,
-Brian

1. Build iptables into an rpm and install the rpm (recommended)
2. Use rpm to install your other package and force nodeps

Ignoring dependencies is exactly contrary to the philosophy of yum, so
there's nothing you can do with yum that will change that, unless you
hack yum itself or, maybe, write a plugin.

Thanks, Allen. I'll look into your suggestion; I've be wanting to
learn how to create an rpm anyway.

I think there is an option -t for tolerate command line errors, and a
yum plugin yum-skip-broken for a yum --skip-broken install

Worse case rpm --nodeps -Uhv
