Re: Did yum hose my FC6?

Quoting Vidiot <brown mrvideo vidiot com>:

The following steps were done over the past few days:

1) upgraded FC2 to FC6 with DVD
2) yum update

There were exactly 400 packages that were to be fetched and installed.
When all was said and done, the following errors showed up:

Yep, it is a damn long list.  I thought that yum was supposed to resolve all
dependency conflicts?  :-(   Quickly glancing at the list, it looks like the
conflict is between lesstif-devel-0.95.0-10.fc6 and openmotif-devel-2.2.3-2.

So, now what?

If you look at base and extras repositories, you'll see there's no openmotif anymore. Probably got replaced by lesstif? And lesstif is in extras, it is not base package. It's probably a bug in how lesstif was packaged (it should have caused openmotif to be removed, I guess, if it is replacement for it, which I haven't checked).

I'd say just remove openmotif* packages. And install lesstif* packages instead.

If lesstif is replacement for openmotif, file the bug report on bugzilla.redhat.com under FC6 Extras for lesstif package.
