RPM Conflict between dbus and desktop-printing


I am sure there is an easy fix here for this. I am relatively new to linux, and I really like Fedora Core 2, it is working like a charm.

The problem is when I try to upgrade via yum, I get the following:

Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - nr/production
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - nr/testing
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Released Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Finding obsoleted packages
Resolving dependencies
.conflict between dbus and desktop-printing

Then it exits. How can I fix this, so I can get the latest updates? Thanks in advance.

You've got conflicting repositories.

Stuff in testing often conflicts with stuff in base or updates.

You should have the following -

1) Base
2) updates-released

Those are the default repositories.
The ones in yum.conf that are commented out, leave them commented out.
They are testing repositories, and sometimes conflict with base and updates-released.

For additional extra software, add

3) Stable

http://www.fedora.us/wiki/FedoraSources#yum

For software that Fedora can't include in their repositories because of patent issues, you can add the livna.org repositories.

http://rpm.livna.org/

-=-

Here is my personal yum.conf file:

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

[base]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/

[updates-released]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/$releasever/$basearch/

### additional repositories
#
# rpm --import http://www.fedora.us/FEDORA-GPG-KEY
# rpm --import http://rpm.livna.org/RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY
#
###

[fedora-us-2-stable]
name=Fedora Linux (stable) for Fedora Core 2 -- Fedora US mirror
baseurl=ftp://ftp.ussg.iu.edu/pub/linux/fedora.us/fedora/fedora/2/i386/RPMS.stable

[livna-stable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
baseurl= http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/yum/stable
gpgcheck=1

[livna-unstable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (unstable)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/yum/unstable
gpgcheck=1

[livna-testing]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/yum/testing
gpgcheck=1

#[updates-testing]
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Unreleased Updates
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/testing/$releasever/$basearch/

#[development]
#name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch/
Make sure you import the rpm keys.
Notice that I left commented out the repositories that were commented out from the start.
