Since there are still packages that depend on the old dbus it is still
not possible to do a simple "yum update". Is there a better way to
update the packages that can be updated without hand picking them from
the list ?

Couldn't yum just update everything that is update-able and give a
warning at the end that some packages could not be updated due to what
ever reason. A bit like creating a list of all available updates and
than doing a "yum update <package name>" for each update available and
warn about the ones that can't be updated due to errors? Or is there
already some magic commandline option that can do this ?


Use the script in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/yum

Note that you might be missing out testing on undetected broken dependencies. The script is a sledge hammer.
