Problems during update

Guys, I'm trying to update some packages using apper but I'm getting the following error:

1:kmod-nvidia-3.3.7-1.fc16.x86_64-295.53-1.fc16.1.x86_64 requires /sbin/depmod : Protected multilib versions: libudev-182-3.fc17.i686 != libudev-182-1.fc17.x86_64

Protected multilib versions: cryptsetup-libs-1.4.3-1.fc17.i686 != cryptsetup-libs-1.4.2-1.fc17.x86_64
I was performing a long update until my system completely froze. After that, I could not get it to work. I tried to install those packages listed after != in each line manually, but apper says they are already installed.

I'm using Fedora 17 x86_64 KDE with NVIDIA drivers.

Re: Problems during update

Something is messed up here.

Why are you trying to install the nvidia driver for F16 instead of F17?

Also there seems to be some confusion about 32 bit (i686) and 64 bit (x86_64) libraries.

It's good that you've mentioned what you've tried already (although it was the wrong thing to try), but the full story is missing.

Please run the two commands yum list gtk2 and yum check and post the output here.

Re: Problems during update

I figured it out, guys. What happened was:

1. During the first time I tried to upgrade packages, apper/yum installed the new ones but since the system froze, it did not uninstall the old ones.
2. Because of that, I got duplicated packages. For example, I had two versions of qt.

What I did:

1. Removed all the duplicated packages with package-cleanup --cleandupes;
2. Checked orphan packages with package-cleanup --orphans and removed SOME of them (be careful when you do this)
3. Removed manually some orphan packages (some old ones don't have a F17 version yet like veetle but they still work)

After I did that, I noticed that skype was not working. Trying to start it from terminal, I found out that there were some libraries missing. Using whatprovides, I got all the packages I need to get skype running again. Sweet!

I think I'm not a noob in linux anymore... =D
