I haven't gotten the error but maybe this will help. I did the following on my system to find the file you requested, but I have FC4-X86_64.

Code:
[root@localhost Richard]# rpm -qa | grep libwpd
libwpd-0.8.1-1
libwpd-0.8.1-1
[root@localhost Richard]# rpm -ql libwpd-0.8.1-1
/usr/lib/libwpd-0.8.so
/usr/lib/libwpd-0.8.so.8
/usr/lib/libwpd-0.8.so.8.0.1
/usr/lib/libwpd-stream-0.8.so
/usr/lib/libwpd-stream-0.8.so.8
/usr/lib/libwpd-stream-0.8.so.8.0.1
/usr/lib64/libwpd-0.8.so
/usr/lib64/libwpd-0.8.so.8
/usr/lib64/libwpd-0.8.so.8.0.1
/usr/lib64/libwpd-stream-0.8.so
/usr/lib64/libwpd-stream-0.8.so.8
/usr/lib64/libwpd-stream-0.8.so.8.0.1
So it appears that you would need to get an rpm for libwpd-1 or something like that. Maybe you can use yum to get it or just go find it your self and then use rpm to install it.

Code:
yum update [package-name]
I don't know if yum can use wildcard for the package-name.

The "libwpd" package in the base repository of FC3 provides the file you want. I have no idea why Yum doesn't find it. Perhaps your Yum config is messed up? Can you show us your /etc/yum.conf and all your files in /etc/yum.conf.d/ ?

If necessary you can try to download the package manually here: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...7.2-1.i386.rpm

There's a bugzilla report on this one: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla....cgi?id=170117 It's related to abiword.

It will eventually be resolved, but until then, you can run yum like this to avoid the problem:

yum --exclude=libwpd* update

Shams, rather than just divert people to your website, let them know the actual answer on the boards. We have no way of knowing how long your site will be up and so anyone searching in 6months plus time may find that you have posted a dead link.

The point of LQ is to keep the knowledge in one place and accessible to all. Anyone can just add a link, but it takes someone special to actually answer the question.

Hi all I checked everything you all stated and it looks like it's a bug with Fedora. I'll keep monitoring the bug and hopefully it will be fixed soon
Shams You need to update your link it took me to a CNN site about the Nielson Ratings
My /etc/yum.conf look like this:

[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
retries=20
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d
~
files in /etc/yum.conf.d/ aren't there,actually by using ls -la there isn't anything named that at all. In /etc/yum.repos.d is a dir and it looks like:
fedora-devel.repo fedora-updates.repo
fedora.repo fedora-updates-testing.repo

Let me know if further information is needed

I just solved this problem what I did was following TexasDevilDog's post I simply:

Code:
[root@localhost manuel]# rpm -qa | grep libwpd
libwpd-tools-0.7.2-1
libwpd-0.7.2-1
libwpd-devel-0.7.2-1
[root@localhost manuel]# rpm -ql libwpd-0.8.1-1
package libwpd-0.8.1-1 is not installed   /// oops don't follow it too blindly
[root@localhost manuel]# rpm -ql libwpd-0.7.2-1
/usr/lib/libwpd-1.so
/usr/lib/libwpd-1.so.7
/usr/lib/libwpd-1.so.7.0.2
[root@localhost manuel]# yum update libwpd-*
Setting up Update Process
Setting up Repos
WORKED FROM HERE ON....
So using the asterisk helped I don't know if that was because Fedora made the package more available or what.

You can find the file you mention on the website:rpmfind
(you can input rpmfind or sourceforge in the google search bar , the first one is ok).

I am glad that it worked out for you. My company, Nokia, had me take an accelerated Linux class last week. I went from neophyte to above average user in a week. I will probably forget most of it in a month or so.
