    Yes let me try to be more clear. First you need to get the yum-utils 
installed. You do this in this way:

# yum install yum-utils

This gets the utils installed. I check it this way, in a root Terminal:

# package-cleanup

and you will get a response giving all the options available. If you get 
"no such file" then you don't have yum-utils installed.

Now, to check for problems use this:

# package-cleanup --problems

You will get a list of missing Dependant rpm files you can then get yum 
to install for you.

    I hope this is clear and everyone can see what this does.
