Fedora core 3 and RHN up2date


I have just recently re-installed FC3 for AMD64 (from DVD) and am trying to run up2date. My problem is that for a majority of the packages I am receiveing errors messages indicating that a file in the new package will conflict with a file already installed. What is curious is that all of these files are from the package that will be upgraded or replaced!

If there a config option that I need to set?

Although I am a relative newbie to linux, this is my second install (I didn't like what disk druid did the first time) on this machine and I did not have problem the first time.

Any help or advice is much appreciated!

Use yum, or install apt-get and use that.

Yeah, I tried that too and got a different set of problems. Below is just the end of about 400 mesages that apt spit out. I am not sure if I should go the 'apt-get -f' route though.

BTW, GLIBC is one the packages giving me problems from up2date.
...
zip: Depends: libc.so.6()(64bit)
Depends: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit)
Depends: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3)(64bit)
zisofs-tools: Depends: libc.so.6()(64bit)
Depends: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit)
Depends: libz.so.1()(64bit)
zsh: Depends: libc.so.6()(64bit)
Depends: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit)
Depends: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3)(64bit)
Depends: libdl.so.2()(64bit)
Depends: libdl.so.2(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit)
Depends: libm.so.6()(64bit)
Depends: libm.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit)
Depends: libncurses.so.5()(64bit)
Depends: libnsl.so.1()(64bit)
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

Hrm, ouch.

I think you have to apt-get -f install in order for apt to start working right. It's been a while since I've done it, but that's what pops to mind. As for your problem...don't know...hopefully the -f install will work for you.

Okay, I tried the 'apt-get -f upgrade' it came back with several messages and prompting me with...
...
7 upgraded, 4 newly installed, 816 removed and 4 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/4080kB of archives.
After unpacking 3953MB disk space will be freed.
You are about to do something potentially harmful
To continue type in the phrase 'Yes, do as I say!'
?]
...

So I told it to go and now I am getting alot of what you see below. Could there be trash left out there from my previous install even though I re-partitioned everything before re-installing?

BTW, I appreciate your help with this technoslave!

...
W: There are multiple versions of "libofx" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
option in your configuration file:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^libofx$"; };

To disable these warnings completely set:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated-Warning "false";

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

Okay, I decided I had nothing to lose and re-ran up2date, but this time I selected all packages and it's running. For the earlier attempts, I was only selecting the packages for the x86_64 arch (unless there was no equivelant, then I selected the i386 arch).
