Hello All.

I am new to the forum as well as Linux and NXlog. (triple issue I know)

I am attempting to install NXLog (nxlog-ce-2.11.2190_rhel8.x86_64.rpm) on a CentOS 8 machine. I am using the NXLog user guide (9. REHL & CentOS) for installing the program. When I run the command to install the rpm package below, I receive the following error message. I have been unsuccessful searching the internet for a resolution so I though I would give the forum a try. I would appreciate any help or tip which might steer me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance,

Problem: conflicting requests
- Nothing provides libdbi >= 0.8.1 needed by nxlog-ce-2.11.2190_rhel8.x86_64

Sounds like quite the learning experience. Good luck! :)

You will likely need to install the EPEL package.

yum install epel-release

Then you will see the packages.

[root@localhost ~]# yum list | grep libdbi
