This is true, but some
of the problems may be avoided by first upgrading YUM so the --skip-broken
option is implemented and then doing a yum --skip-broken update
. Note, however, that FC4 has not been supported for several years now, so the yum
update (or the skip-broken
yum plugin) may not be available for FC4.
Note that using the skip-broken
option will considerably
slow the update process since each RPM is checked as it's added to the update list instead of waiting until the whole list is created.
Oh, since weisso5
