Updates!


I have 610 updates available, but whenever I go in and try to do them all, it says that two of them confilct with the ATI package I installed. Fine by me, I can't use it anyway. Unfortunately, it just has an 'OK' button at the bottom, and pushing that exits. The packages it lists are NOT on the list of package updates, so I do not know how to just skip these! This really sucks. Help me, please.

Try updating using yum as root e.g. "yum update".

It means that there are some updates that still haven't been installed. Possibly the packages that would conflict with your ATI driver have not been installed. You can disable it by clicking on the gnome-panel and removing the rhn applet.

There definitley is a problem but I can't figure out what it is. If you use irc, maybe go to the #fedora channel at freenode and try get some help.
