lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Mar 27 17:47 liba52.so -> liba52.so.0.0.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Mar 27 15:43 liba52_0.0.7.1.el5.rf -> /usr/lib/liba52dec
Transaction Check Error: file /usr/lib/liba52.so.0.0.0 from install of a52dec-0.7.4-8.el5.rf conflicts with file from package liba52_0-0.7.4-7.0.1.el5
What should i do?
Re-rename the library so it is back to what it was, then report the original error.
Probably you will need to remove the library package, and let yum install the appropriate one from the repos you have configured.
You realize that RHEL is not designed to be supported via yum? Technically, if you want free support you should use a free OS. What are you using for repos?
