dnf install -y x2goserver is acting up

Posted December 15, 2020 1.3k views

When trying to follow your steps, I bump into this issue:

dnf install -y x2goserver
Last metadata expiration check: 0:00:46 ago on Tue 15 Dec 2020 03:12:22 PM UTC.
 Problem: conflicting requests
  - nothing provides perl(File::BaseDir) needed by x2goserver-
  - nothing provides sshfs needed by x2goserver-
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)

Where to find/install perl(File::BaseDir) ?

Hi @Wimmmmm42,

It seems you’ll need to enable the PowerTools epel repo. To do that, execute the following on your Droplet

sudo dnf -y install dnf-plugins-core

Then once you have the DNF Plugins installed, if you didn’t have them before that run :

sudo dnf -y install

After it has finished you can execute:

sudo dnf config-manager --set-enabled PowerTools

After it has finished try again to install x2goserver
