yum reports dublicates
Started getting weird messages whenever I run a yum update about duplicates. I wanted to get the messages to show here, so I did this:


yum check

What in the world is this and what should I do to fix it?

There's probably a more elegant (and faster) way to deal with dupes, but when I've run into duplicate packages, I just manually remove the old ones like this:

sudo rpm -e hpijs-3.12.11-1.fc18.x86_64
Crude, but generally effective.

thanks! I'll do that, then.
