I have no idea if this is the right forum, I've never had to deal with Fedora before so please go easy. I've recently taken over administration of a website which resides on a VPS running FC2. The guys who own said website would like me to install the lastest vBulletin, so in "blonde" moment I decided I'd upgrade FC2 to FC3 then follow up with an upgrade of mysql!
Anyway, I went ahead and installed yum and followed the directions from http://www.brandonhutchinson.com/Upg..._with_yum.html
. All went well until I came upto the final "upgrade yum" command...at which point yum churns through a whole bunch of stuff but ends with this error
--> Processing Conflict: udev conflicts kernel< 0:2.6
Traceback (most recent call last):

Now as I said earlier I'm very new to linux, I've done a search round the web and a few other places but haven't managed to solve the problem. Can anyone here assist. Sorry if you guys need more info, am not sure what helps and what doesn't.
