Unhappy Yum Update logging file conflict errors


I ran a yum update and have received many file conflict errors that I am unsure of how to resolve. I am running CENTOS 5.1 on an I386 32 bit box. Any direction or help would be very appreciated. I have pasted the errors below.

[root@mail ~]# yum update

All these are conflicting with the installed version of Perl. Perhaps you should try and upgrade Perl. Do you even use Perl on this machine? If not, you can probably skip over these perl module updates that might have been updated on rpmforge but not elsewhere, etc. I try to find a mirror and only stick to that one mirror so I don't run into conflicts when one mirror may differ from the other and I happen to hit one during a yum update and this dependency type hell begins.

Unhappy Dependency hell

Being very new to Linux, can you advise me how I can exclude these specific files from being updated? Better yet can I remove these files without breaking my system and have the updates then properly run? Maybe just renaming the files?

If you don't use perl or the perl modules outlined, you should be able to remove them without any issues.

Usually you can set it to ignore packages in your yum.conf file.

Make a list of the conflicting packages. Then remove them and their dependencies (add these to your list as well) by running
Quote:
yum remove <packagenames>
Then you can run
Quote:
yum install <all packages from your list>
to re-install everything - in this case yum will take care of resolving dependencies.

This helps when different applications require different versions of a certain application.
