Hi all,

Im trying to install various programs (after a recent update) and im getting this same error:

package lcms-1.17-5.fc8.x86_64 (which is newer than lcms-1.17-2.fc8.i386) is already installed

Should i just wait a few days and all will heal itself???

Hi benjo,
Are you trying to install something that requires lcms.i386 instead of the 64bit package? On my machine (also F8)

yum list lcms*

show the same thing you are getting - that the i386 version of the package is older than the 64bit version.

BUT, you should have lcms-libs.i386 installed (at least I do).

So I guess we (at least I) need to know what it is you are trying to do.

Thanks for the info,

I was just trying to install wine to run a skydiving program called Jump Track and no i actually didn't have lcms-libs.i386 installed, i thought that would create a conflict.

Iv'e now installed it and all seems to be working.

You've been very helpful thank you.

Did you install wine with the "wine" metapackage? That would pull wine-cms, which requires lcms, AFAIK.
