Yum update conflict error acer aspire one linux linpus lite


after opening terminal i type in the sudo command and become root.
then after typing in: yum update
i get a list of what can be downloaded for update, i type in y and press enter..the updates start to download, but thats where the problem starts. i get an error message saying this:

Transaction Check Error:
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

I don't have Linpus Lite but I found this link.

gnome-menus
This depedency problem is triggered by 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.

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
You might want to read that entire web page. It has some good information about software update conflicts in Linpus Lite.
