xorg update problem


Since I'm having some pretty ridiculous problems with my display, I decided to update to the latest xorg-x11.x86_64. But when I try to update with yum, I get the following:

Code:
--> Running transaction check

Dependencies Resolved
Transaction Listing:
  Update: xorg-x11.x86_64 0:6.8.2-1.FC3.13

Performing the following to resolve dependencies:
  Update: xorg-x11-libs.x86_64 0:6.8.2-1.FC3.13
  Update: xorg-x11-xdm.x86_64 0:6.8.2-1.FC3.13
  Update: xorg-x11-xfs.x86_64 0:6.8.2-1.FC3.13
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Downloading Packages:
Running Transaction Test
Finished Transaction Test
Transaction Check Error:   file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/compose.dir from install of xorg-x11-libs-6.8.2-1.FC3.13 conflicts with file from package xorg-x11-libs-6.8.1-12

What can I do to get rid of this problem? I can't remove the old version -- it will remove almost everything I've installed.

Thanks,
Jeff

If you want to live dangerously, you could try rpm directly and use one of the "force" options. Perhaps "upgrade" might work.

Note, please, that I'd suggest CAREFUL reading of the rpm manual pages before doing this!!!

I think you don't need force option. I think the program you're running is trying to install the packages instead of upgrading them. Try upgrading with
rpm -Uvh packagename
