FC3, 64-bit multilib, with many yum update conflicts


Had a working FC3 64-bit installation. yum update would produce a conflict with perl, but otherwise, all was well...

Then... I did something that forced me to do a reinstall. Details omitted.

So, with a fresh install, the first thing I wanted to do was a yum update, using the yum config that comes with the installation.

Now, I'm running into massive conflicts.

I can't update: gcc, cpp, xorg*, xfce*, etc. Conflict after conflict after conflict.

I see sporadic posts via google about one-sy two-sy conflicts, but this is beyond that. And compiling kernel modules is affected, because the version of gcc used is not up to date...

Any ideas? I'm wondering if this is a 64-bit multilib issue that has no easy solution... Wondering if I should bite the bullet and just install FC3 32-bit, though I'd prefer not to.

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. I'm a hurtin' here...

it is better to use the updates from the fedora official website, fedora and all linux distros pakcages are compiled for the same versions, os if you want to change the vesion of any pakcage it will conflict to others, the new releases of any pakcages will be included in the updates or the next vresion of distro.
