# rpm -qa | grep fedora-release
fedora-release-10-1.noarch
fedora-release-notes-10.0.0-1.noarch
fedora-release-11-1.noarch
fedora-release-notes-11.0.0-2.fc11.noarch

So I'm running

# package-cleanup --cleandupes

Will use

# package-cleanup --orphans

and

# package-cleanup --problems

after that, but I may have more questions. Thanks again for all of your help.

It's probably simpler to download the current RPM by hand (or save a copy of the current one), then do a:

	rpm -e -a --nodeps fedora-release
	rpm -i --nodeps fedora-release-11-1.noarch.rpm
