when i try to install "Gnome Menus" from the package installer, and error comes up.


First it says that i need to install the red hat menus, i then press continue and this error comes up

file /usr/share/desktop-directories/Internet.directory from install of gnome-menus-2.20.1-1.fc8 conflicts with file from package xfdesktop-acer-lp-1652.mcs_patched
file /usr/share/desktop-directories/Settings.directory from install of gnome-menus-2.20.1-1.fc8 conflicts with file from package xfdesktop-acer-lp-1652.mcs_patched

anyone know how to fix this?

thanks

"#3 gnome-menus
This depedency problem is triggered via f-spot or evolution, displaying the following error.

file /usr/share/desktop-directories/Internet.directory from install of gnome-menus-2.20.3-1.fc8 conflicts with file from package xfdesktop-acer-lp-1522.no_spot.mcs_patched
file /usr/share/desktop-directories/Settings.directory from install of gnome-menus-2.20.3-1.fc8 conflicts with file from package xfdesktop-acer-lp-1522.no_spot.mcs_patched

It's fairly easy to fix. Just download gnome-menus and redhat-menus and force their installation. Then restore the original content of the conflicting files."


Code:
sudo yum install yum-utils
sudo yumdownloader gnome-menus redhat-menus
cp /usr/share/desktop-directories/* .
sudo rpm -U --force gnome*rpm redhat*rpm
sudo mv *directory /usr/share/desktop-directories

sorry, but i have no idea where it says that
I checked the box next to "gnome-menus" then click apply, then it asks me to install red hat menus, and thats when the error occurs.

The code as posted in the first reply needs to be run from a terminal window, not a graphical interface to the package manager.

What the above does is take care of dependencies. Now you can procede with whatever you originally intended to install.

are you trying to install fedora 8 rpm's on a Linpus acer laptop
if so they ARE INCOMPATIBLE AND WILL KILL YOUR ACER "Linpus" install .
You MUST install the Linpus software from there web site . no if, and or buts .


or reformat the hard drive and install fedora 10
