Question xfce 4.2.1.1 install on Fedora


Hi,

I have FC3 and downloaded a bz2 with rpms for xfce 4.2.1.1 and tried the command suggested:
rpm -ivh --nosignature *.rpm

I got alot of "conflict messages" e.g.:

file /usr/lib/libxfce4util.so.1 from install of libxfce4util-4.2.1-1 conflicts with file from package libxfce4util-4.0.6-1
file /usr/bin/xfce-mcs-manager from install of xfce-mcs-manager-4.2.1-1 conflicts with file from package xfce-mcs-manager-4.0.6-2
file /usr/bin/xfce-setting-show from install of xfce-mcs-manager-4.2.1-1 conflicts with file from package xfce-mcs-manager-4.0.6-2
file /usr/share/xfce4/doc/C/images/settings_manager.png from install of xfce-mcs-manager-4.2.1-1 conflicts with file from package xfce-mcs-manager-4.0.6-2

Any suggestions as to what I can do to resolve this? I normally use the Red Hat / Fedora graphical system update tool and/or yum but xfce 4.2.1.1 has not shownn up for either yet (unless soembody could point me to a yum repo with a packgs for xfce 4.2.1.1). Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
akb

You just need to do an "upgrade" (-Uvh) instead if "install" (-ivh), thus overwriting the old conflicting packages/files with the shiny new ones. So:

rpm -Uvh *.rpm
