You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest

I tried the two suggesting above to no avail. Has anyone else been able to install glib-devel.i686 successfully on CentOS 7?

  • ​It is actually ​glibc-devel-2.17-157.el7_3.5.i686. So you either provide the whole name or just use glibc-devel.i686 for the yum command.


  • Thanks Akemi, that worked. I had done a “yum search” and just cut & pasted from the output, but leaving out the version number is much easier.
