KDE Plasma Workspaces for RLRC

Hi,

I tried installing the “KDE Plasma Workspaces” after installing “epel-release” with my Rocky Linux Release Candidate 8.3 setup and running into below pasted errors:

yum groupinstall "KDE Plasma Workspaces"

Last metadata expiration check: 0:01:09 ago on Sun 02 May 2021 02:25:44 AM IST.
Error:
Problem 1: conflicting requests

  • nothing provides xmessage needed by plasma-workspace-5.18.4.1-2.el8.x86_64
    Problem 2: package sddm-breeze-5.18.4.1-2.el8.noarch requires plasma-workspace = 5.18.4.1-2.el8, but none of the providers can be installed
  • conflicting requests
  • nothing provides xmessage needed by plasma-workspace-5.18.4.1-2.el8.x86_64

    (try to add ‘–skip-broken’ to skip uninstallable packages or ‘–nobest’ to use not only best candidate packages)

Also, when tried installing xmessage package, it gave below errors:

yum install xmessage

Last metadata expiration check: 0:12:06 ago on Sun 02 May 2021 02:25:44 AM IST.
No match for argument: xmessage
Error: Unable to find a match: xmessage

Any suggestions to fix this will be very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi,
It’s not a bug, you have to enable the powertools repo and the dependencies will be met.
xmessage is not in a package called xmessage.
