FC7 test 2 failed?

Here is the message I got:

I have a CD-Burner but not a DVD-Burner and I can't download test 4 because of that until May 24th and I don't want to wait that long to install FC7.
Is there another solution to this error:

Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/sbin/liveinst from install of anaconda- conflicts with file from package liveinst-0.01-1
file /usr/share/applications/liveinst.desktop from install of anaconda- conflicts with file from package liveinst-0.01-1

Error Summary

I tried to update to FC7 test 4 but was unable to with this message.

Please let me know? Appreciate all of your help.

To clarify, how did you install F7 test 2? (Note that with the merge the "Core" part is dropped.) Did you try a live install, because I see a liveinst package.

You can use the small boot.iso in the os/images dir to boot a network install. Whatever you can test is good, this is a test release.

Or this is on the development branch, a massive yum update should get you to the latest. Of course that doesn't test the installer.

In late May Fedora 7 final will be released, you may want that.

This type of answer is exactly why new people will stay away from fedora. The fact that a community manager can make such a dismissive post is proof of how unhelpful these forums have become. I found this post with a search of a recently encountered problem while testing fedora7 test 2. Jman would obviously prefer to pretend a problem doesn't exist.
A massive yum update is the problem. The update gives an error for which the original person eluded. There is a file conflict that will not allow for the yum update. A more helpful response would have been nice. Apparently the Fedora community is going the way of the Gentoo community. Unhelpful and obnoxious.

How much more helpful could he have been? He doesn't list the error message, other than to say that he gets a yum error. Looking back at the date, it may have had something to do with the merge going on. If you don't provide details, it's quite difficult to be very helpful.

Also, I'm glad to see you registered to post on the forums just to tell us all how unhelpful we are.

bigmac here is how I fixed the same error on my machine. All you have to do is remove the offending package (liveinst). Removing the package lets the newer package (liveinst.desktop) install in its place and fixes the error. Everything works normally after that.
yum remove liveinst
yum upgrade
