    Issues with installing updates for FC11....multiple packages not compatible

    A month or two ago I was installing several updates when a windows pops up telling me that there are multiple packages not compatible with some feedback which I did not understand. Since I didn't have the time to track this down and everything was still running fine, I just ignored it. Now I have 130 updates built up and I would like to address this issue. Here is the feedback from the latest attempt to update:

    ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
    kernel-uname-r = 2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.x86_64 is needed by kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.x86_64-180.29-1.fc10.1.x86_64
    kernel-uname-r = 2.6.27.24-170.2.68.fc10.x86_64 is needed by kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.24-170.2.68.fc10.x86_64-180.51-1.fc10.5.x86_64
    kernel-uname-r = 2.6.27.25-170.2.72.fc10.x86_64 is needed by kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.25-170.2.72.fc10.x86_64-180.51-1.fc10.8.x86_64
    Please report this error at http://yum.baseurl.org/report


    Just to note, I went to the link specified and posted this error. I got several negative and rude responses from some users telling me to quit spamming that site. I hope someone has a more constructive response for me here.

    Thanks

    Hello Berkyjay,

    I guess you upgraded from Fedora 10 to Fedora 11. You may have a bunch of the old Fedora 10 kmod stuff hanging around. It's happened before anyway. Take a moment to study what is installed.
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep -e kernel -e kmod-nvidia | sort
    Whatever results from that needs to make sense. It may not.

    Hi thanks for the suggestion. Yes, I did originally have FC10 installed. But then one day when I was doing updates and the next thing I know I have FC11. Any ways, I ran the terminal command and this is the output:

    kernel-2.6.29.6-217.2.3.fc11.x86_64
    kernel-2.6.29.6-217.2.7.fc11.x86_64
    kernel-2.6.30.5-43.fc11.x86_64
    kernel-devel-2.6.30.5-43.fc11.x86_64
    kernel-devel-2.6.30.8-64.fc11.x86_64
    kernel-devel-2.6.30.9-96.fc11.x86_64
    kernel-firmware-2.6.30.9-96.fc11.noarch
    kernel-headers-2.6.30.9-96.fc11.x86_64
    kerneloops-0.12-5.fc11.x86_64
    kmod-nvidia-185.18.36-1.fc11.1.x86_64
    kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.x86_64-180.29-1.fc10.1.x86_64
    kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.24-170.2.68.fc10.x86_64-180.51-1.fc10.5.x86_64
    kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.25-170.2.72.fc10.x86_64-180.51-1.fc10.8.x86_64
    kmod-nvidia-2.6.29.6-217.2.3.fc11.x86_64-185.18.31-1.fc11.x86_64
    kmod-nvidia-2.6.30.5-43.fc11.x86_64-185.18.36-1.fc11.1.x86_64

    It does indeed look like I still have FC10 kernals left on my machine. My question is, how do I resolve this. Is there a way for me to remove the FC10 stuff easily or is it going to be a complicated matter?

    You should be able to manually delete those three F10 kmods like this...
    Code:
    su
    yum remove kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.x86_64-180.29-1.fc10.1.x86_64
    yum remove kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.24-170.2.68.fc10.x86_64-180.51-1.fc10.5.x86_64
    yum remove kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.25-170.2.72.fc10.x86_64-180.51-1.fc10.8.x86_64
    You can even copy and paste the package names directly from that rpm query into the yum commands. So it should be very uncomplicated. After you do that, you can try your update again..
    Code:
    su
    yum clean all
    yum update
    P.S.: You can remove all three of the kmods at once it you want to speed things up...
    Code:
    su
    yum remove kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.x86_64-180.29-1.fc10.1.x86_64 kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.24-170.2.68.fc10.x86_64-180.51-1.fc10.5.x86_64 kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.25-170.2.72.fc10.x86_64-180.51-1.fc10.8.x86_64
    P.P.S.: If you get this fixed and the update done, I recommend that you do the rpm query one more time. In the rpm query that you did, one of the kernels doesn't have a kmod. That's no big deal really because that kernel is not the latest kernel anyway, and it will go away someday after a future update. But two of the kernel-devels don't have a corresponding kernel, and those might sit there forever. You know, look at things like that. Normally, the way it should be is three kernels, a kernel-devel for each kernel, a kmod-nvidia for each kernel; but only the latest kernel-headers, kernel-firmware, and kmod-nvidia metapackage. But this idea is just housekeeping and strictly optional if everything is working after the update.

    Great! I really appreciate the help. It's hard to keep track of this stuff sometimes, but this info helps a ton and will help me in the future as well.
