conflict between initscripts and pppd FC2


I am having the same problem as http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...itscripts+pppd

except with yum. Any thoughts?

# yum update
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
Server: macromedia.mplug.org - Flash Plugin
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Released Updates
Server: Fedora Core 2 ( xcyborg / stable )
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Resolving dependencies
.conflict between initscripts and pppd


Here's my yum.conf.

# This is a yum.conf for Fedora Core.
# It uses Fedora mirrors to make things faster,
# since the main Red Hat Fedora site is pretty slow.
#
# Also, if you look down in the "Alternate Repositories"
# section, you'll notice some commented-out repositories.
# If you want to use them, uncomment them.

That is a known bug. A temporary solution to update the other packages:

# yum --exclude=initscripts --exclude=ppp --exclude=pppd upgrade

Thanks bigmunkey. I did that. I don't use that package anyway.

initscripts 7.55.1-1 has been released

Problem solved.

1) yum --exclude=ppp --exclude=pppd update

gets initscripts-7.55.1-1, then

2) yum update

now works and gets ppp-2.4.2-3.
