I'm setting up a build environment following the instructions on gumstix.net for "Setup and Programming" for the Overo.

After including the epel and rpmfusion repositories (so that I could install some missing packages), I was finally able to get bitback to start it's process:

bitbake omap3-console-image

...so I'm missing polkit-policy-file-validate...

Using rpmfind, I see it's in PolicyKit...

However, it doesn't seem to exist for RHEL:

yum provides *polkit*

Loaded plugins: kmdl, rhnplugin, security

No Matches found

Doesn't help, and grabbing the PolicyKit for FC11, FC10, or FC09 produces:

rpm -Uhv ~/Desktop/PolicyKit-0.9-4.fc11.i386.rpm

error: Failed dependencies:

        libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.8) is needed by PolicyKit-0.9-4.fc11.i386

        libexpat.so.1 is needed by PolicyKit-0.9-4.fc11.i386

        hal < 0.5.10-3.fc11 conflicts with PolicyKit-0.9-4.fc11.i386

Anyone else using Red Hat Enterprise?  Any thoughts on ways around the problem?
