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

Hi tuhin,

I assume that you are using RHEL 6, but do you have working RHN subscription?

JR

You need RHN subscription to install needed dependencies on RHEL 6.

Hi George,

I’m not sure, but I guess that it’s coming soon.

Not so soon, because this version is released on 4-feb-2014 now is 11-mar-2014. After week or two they will release firefox 28.

Hi again George,

Just checked Remi’s forum and I found that the reason is the lack of time. So maybe next build is Firefox 28 then.

linux is stupid. i am so glad i use os x!!!!! all i have to do is open my firefox browser and if i need an update it AUTOMATICALLY INSTALLS. you linux users have been jipped by a lousy os. you have to type in commands to a freaking terminal and hope for the best that the update does not break your computer. you have to pay money to subscribe to something that gives you updates that are totally free to everybody else that has a decent os.

Hi Robert,

This is your opinion. OSX is nice os, it have excellent base (UNIX) and works nicely with Mac hardware.

I totally disagree your points about Linux.

– Linux is free, you don’t have to pay anything (some distros have subscription model, but you pay mainly support). Actually OSX users have to pay first their os (you can’t get OSX without Mac) and you have to pay even major version updates, right?
– Linux have automatic updates as well and actually even better controlled updates, than OSX. Example CentOS/RHEL or Debian stable are very stable systems and all packages are tested before release (I mean really well tested). OSX updates are mainly managed by software developers and not always so well tested.
– When use Linux, you can install and update almost every packages from repos, using package management systems (yum, apt, etc.).
– You can update packages and whole distribution without terminal or using terminal.

One thing to think, when you say that Linux is just a joke:
– Most Internet services, like websites, mail systems etc. are powered by Linux (& Windows). Some studies says that the Linux market share is something between 58-78%, when OSX market share is 0-2%.

After all Linux is designed to be fully usable without any GUI, when OSX is mainly Desktop OS, just like Windows. Macs are very expensive if we think pure processing power. If you want to pay just beautiful & quality design, but get basic hardware, then Macs are good choice.
