upgrading from FC5->FC6->FC7 with yum


Hi,
I have tried to upgrade my Fedora Core 5 to the latest version 7 with yum.
I have done it as it described in this article. Everything went smooth with transition from FC5 to FC6. But after I have upgraded to FC7 I have started to have some conflicts of the packages. I have tried to get rid of some optional repositories and have only main fedora repo now. Stil if run yum -y update I am getting this:
Quote:
Running Transaction Test
Finished Transaction Test

Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/lib/libwx_baseu-2.6.so.0.3.1 from install of compat-wxGTK26-2.6.3-2 conflicts with file from package wx-base-unicode-2.6.3-1
file /usr/lib/libwx_baseu_net-2.6.so.0.3.1 from install of compat-wxGTK26-2.6.3-2 conflicts with file from package wx-base-unicode-2.6.3-1
file /usr/lib/libwx_baseu_xml-2.6.so.0.3.1 from install of compat-wxGTK26-2.6.3-2 conflicts with file from package wx-base-unicode-2.6.3-1

Error Summary
-------------
I have tried to remove compat-wxGTK26, but that does not seem to be installed yet, but it wants to install during update process.

Con you help me to resolve that conflict? Maybe some repository wizardry is involved here?

Mike

Make sure it isn't installed sometimes things get all screwy.
Do

# rpm -qa | grep compat

and see what it returns.

I have removed wx-base-unicode, then
Quote:
yum clean all
, then installed manually compat-wxGTK26, and
Quote:
yum -y update
. That seams to resolve the conflict.
Thanks.

Hm..
I have bumped into a number of other conflicts, and by trying to resolve them it seams that I killed my installation ;-{
Because of complicated dependency chains where packs were partially dependent on old FC5 libraries, and partially on new FC7, so when I tried to get rid of FC5 stuff I removed most of essential stuff like yum and rpm. I am not sure that it worth the effort to recover this installation from that point. Probably I will give up, and download Fedora dvd for clean install.
So my feeling so far that upgrade with yum is broken in general. It mite work fine for certain cases or if you are a Linux Guru. But if you are mediocre Linux user, do not do it if you are not desperate to upgrade!
