[Fedora-directory-users] Do not yum install fedora-ds or yum upgrade!

There is a problem with the new fedora-ds in Fedora Extras. It conflicts with the old fedora-ds 1.0.x installation. If you do a 'yum install fedora-ds' or a 'yum update' on a system that has fedora-ds 1.0.x installed, the installation will remove the old binaries. You may be saying "So what? Isn't that what you want?" No, sadly. The fedora-ds 1.1.0a1 in Fedora Extras is the core only - when you upgrade, you remove all of the other files for admin server, console, etc. The good news is that none of the configuration or data is affected and you can easily recover by following these steps:

   * Find the fedora-ds 1.0.4 RPM you installed from originally, or
     download from http://directory.fedora.redhat.com/wiki/Download
   * rpm -Uvh --oldpackage fedora-ds-1.0.4-1......rpm

We are working on a solution for this. We will hopefully figure out a way to install both 1.0.4 and 1.1 at the same time, but we may have to make the 1.1 Conflicts: fedora-ds < 1.1 or something like that. In the meantime, fedora-ds is being pulled from the Fedora Extras yum repos so that this doesn't happen again.

I apologize for any inconvenience.
