Yum updates on FC3_64


Hey all,

I'm having some issues getting a newly installed FC3 64-bit system updated. This is a fresh install, and so naturally I'm trying to get everything updated. However, using Yum, up2date, or even Apt, I'm getting dependancy problems related to perl. Here's what I"m seeing:

Code:
Transaction Check Error:   file /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/File/Path.pm from install of perl-5.8.5-14.FC3 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.5-9
  file /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/FindBin.pm from install of perl-5.8.5-14.FC3 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.5-9
  file /usr/share/man/man1/c2ph.1.gz from install of perl-5.8.5-14.FC3 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.5-9
  file /usr/share/man/man1/cpan.1.gz from install of perl-5.8.5-14.FC3 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.5-9
  file /usr/share/man/man1/dprofpp.1.gz from install of perl-5.8.5-14.FC3 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.5-9

  file /usr/share/man/man1/find2perl.1.gz from install of perl-5.8.5-14.FC3 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.5-9
  file /usr/share/man/man1/h2ph.1.gz from install of perl-5.8.5-14.FC3 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.5-9
  file /usr/share/man/man1/h2xs.1.gz from install of perl-5.8.5-14.FC3 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.5-9
  file /usr/share/man/man1/libnetcfg.1.gz from install of perl-5.8.5-14.FC3 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.5-9
  file /usr/share/man/man1/perlbug.1.gz from install of perl-5.8.5-14.FC3 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.5-9
That's only a small part of it, but they're all very similar. So now, I'm unable to get my new system fully updated because Yum can't work out the dependancies. I've never had this issue with the 32-bit versions of any of the Fedoras, so I'm thinking it has something to do with the 64-bit version. If that's the case.. then what? Run a half updated 64-bit version, or an updated 32-bit version on 64-bit hardware?

Any ideas on what I may be able to do with this?

Thanks!

Do you have any third party repositories enabled? If so disable them. The only repositories you want enabled on the initial update after installation are:

- The Fedora base
- The Fedora updates
- The Fedora Extras

Do you have third party packages installed? If so, you may need to remove them prior to updating.

Nope, nothing 3rd party installed at all. This was a brand new install, with nothing added or modified. Literally installed Fedora, rebooted, and ran Yum.

Seems very strange.

A Google search turned up a packaging problem in the base install that is causing this. The correction listed is to:

yum remove perl.i386

Cool, that did it.

I'd found something similar in my searching, only without the i386 part. Needless to say, that wouldn't have worked too well...

Thanks!
