FC3, 64-bit multilib, with many yum update conflicts
Had a working FC3 64-bit installation. yum update would produce a conflict with perl, but otherwise, all was well...
Then... I did something that forced me to do a reinstall. Details omitted.
So, with a fresh install, the first thing I wanted to do was a yum update, using the yum config that comes with the installation.
Now, I'm running into massive conflicts.
I can't update: gcc, cpp, xorg*, xfce*, etc. Conflict after conflict after conflict.
I see sporadic posts via google about one-sy two-sy conflicts, but this is beyond that. And compiling kernel modules is affected, because the version of gcc used is not up to date...
Any ideas? I'm wondering if this is a 64-bit multilib issue that has no easy solution... Wondering if I should bite the bullet and just install FC3 32-bit, though I'd prefer not to.
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. I'm a hurtin' here...
