View Full Version : Update Problem
26th August 2011, 07:29 PM
I have been unable to fully update for nearly a week. Just re-installed with the Alpha release and tried updating with both yumex and yum upgrade. Same errors starting with this:
Error: Package: gnome-panel-3.0.2-3.fc16.x86_64 (@koji-override-0/$releasever)
Removing: evolution-data-server-3.1.4-1.fc16.x86_64 (@koji-override-0/$releasever)

There are a number of dependency problems on updates-testing at the moment. They should get sorted out soon, though. The most recent update to gnome-shell is badly broken on my machine, so you may be lucky you haven't gotten the update yet. Also, if you got the most recent glibc update, glibc-2.14.90-6, you should downgrade it. It breaks a lot of things and was pulled from updates-testing. But not before some of us got it. :doh:
If you really want to install the updates, you need to yum erase empathy. Use yum to list evolution* and download the most recent packages from koji. Update those, and the new updates will get pulled in. I did that, but then the new gnome-shell crashed very minute or so, and I undid that upgrade.

Just took another look before you posted this, I only have 4 or so updates....must be getting sorted out. I have noticed no more crashes since I re-installed. Thanks for the reply:D

I seem to be compelled to install the latest version asap :doh:. I have 2 hard drives in my machines that have fedora so as I all ways have a working installation. With Gigabyte motherboards it is so easy to "dual boot" with their F12 button function - on bootup I get all the machine boot options. Not to mention I can just copy all the files to the new version, once it is ready :blink: I am having a few more blips with F16 alpha than the past few, but still for my limited use it is working quite well. :cool:
