Orange is my favorite color

Postgres just released a 8.3.4 update a few days ago and when trying to update with a “yum update”, I got the following error:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: is needed by package postgresql-contrib

Interesting. Well is presumably used by the new-to-8.3 UUID datatype but I haven’t had this issue before. The good news is you can find yourself an RPM in the Fedora repo from Redhat to solve your dependency:

Run “rpm -Uvh uuid-1.5.1-3.el5.i386.rpm” and your PGDG 8.3.4 contrib RPM will update without a hitch.
