Error while trying to install Cuda 5.5 regarding dependant libraries

I am relatively new to trying to install new libraries on my Redhat system but I am trying to install Cuda5.5 and have hit the following problem.

I have been following the directions outlined on this page. CUDA Toolkit Documentation

However when I get to the step for using “install cuda” I get the following error:

Error: Package: cuda-samples-5-5-5.5-22.x86_64 (cuda)
Requires: freeglut-devel
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

I have downloaded free-glut devel from here ( however when I use “rpm --install freeglut-devel-100529-8.1.2.i586.rpm”

I get the following error:

warning: freeglut-devel-100529-8.1.2.i586.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 3dbdc284: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
freeglut = 100529-8.1.2 is needed by freeglut-devel-100529-8.1.2.i586
xorg-x11-Mesa-devel is needed by freeglut-devel-100529-8.1.2.i586
xorg-x11-devel is needed by freeglut-devel-100529-8.1.2.i586

Which I am less able to interpret and understand. I have tried following other tutorials for setting things up but I haven’t had much luck with those either. Any ideas? Thanks.

I’m having the exact same problem, and would like to know the solution to this issue. I’m using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6.1.

Installing libraries by hand from rpm packages can be tedious.
What happens if you issue the following command as root:

yum list freeglut*
