Question SDL -1.2.5-1 and previous versions. (installation & removal)


hey all!
Im trying to install SDL-1.2.5-1.src.rpm but rpmdrake says it conflicts with SDL-1.2.4 (or libSDL-1.2.4)
If i want to remove the old version it says alot of other packages also have to be removed, these are mainly games and the xmms music program.

Is it really necessary to remove and re-install all these games?

ps. checking the upgrade box has no effect.

you should upgrade, not install, thn it will beeasier with dependencies, use option U not i with rpm. and don't install the source rpm, use a bnary one.
