If you are using yum to update your entire system then problems are bound to arise.
But on the other hand, something does indeed sound seedy! If you are trying to UPDATE
an app, in this case "pam_krb5
", then obviously the newer one should simply replace the older one & get on with it, strange that it is not! And he fact that it's not looks as though “pam_krb5-2.1.15-2
” is trying to be INSTALLED instead of UPDATED!?!
Updating everything you installed from the FC4 CD immediately after a fresh install seems rather fruitless to me as one usually only updates a package if it is causing trouble, like it's crashing, or even that the developer has included some extra features that you would like to use.
If you are trying to do a complete update then this would suggest to me that you have a cable or better Internet connection, if this is the case then why don't you simply download Fedora Core 5 & start again!! I'm running FC5 & have, so far, found it to be much better than FC4! And as a matter of fact, I have found yum to be one of the programs that has been greatly improved!
Anyway, if you really want to stick with FC4 answering the following questions will help us to decipher your problem :
1.What EXACT command did you issue to start this yum update?
2.How many apps got updated before you ran into this problem?
3.Before trying to exclude the dodgy program from being updated, first try updating only this package, see what happens & post results! Do this with the following command :
yum update pam_krb5
