    Re: F18 How to resolve yum file conflict.

    Recently, I had to clean up my main computer after an upgrade from F17->F19 hung and had similar issues. I spent some time on #yum and got help with various issues, but from all I can tell, there isn't a --force flag for yum, and none of the devs seems to think it's a good idea to have it. Have you tried this:

    package-cleanup --problems

    This will give you a list of every current conflict. If you have more than one, it may be that they're all related to one package, and if so, you can concentrate on getting them all fixed at once. Even if they're not, they'll tell you what needs to be done, although it may turn out that there's a conflict you can't clear because it's looking for a package that doesn't exist. As an example, system-config-network is complaining that python-iwlib is > 1.3, but the only version available is python-iwlib-1.2-1.fc17.i686, so there's no way to resolve the conflict.

    Thanks for your answer!

    This is sooooooo annoying! I want that --force flag for yum.... When did Fedora become such a mess? I come to a point where the system tells me I can't do this/that/whatever so often lately, that I almost feel I could switch back to windows. The system knows better what I want to do..... damn!

    Re: F18 How to resolve yum file conflict.

    If yum won't remove a package, try this:

    rpm -e packagename

    And, if it complains about dependencies:

    rpm -e --nodeps packakgename

    Then, use yum to reinstall it and just ignore it when it complains that the rpmdb was modified outside of yum. Once in a while, yum will resolve dependencies on a remove but not do anything because the package has been obsoleted, not updated or upgraded. Again, use rpm to remove followed by installing with yum.

    this is a cheap and wrong answer.

    Right or wrong, it's not worth your time to tag a post onto a 5-yr. old thread. This one's closed.
