FC3, installing a new xscreensaver
 
[root@localhost i386]# rpm -iv xscreensaver-base-4.21-1.i386.rpm
Preparing packages for installation...
file /etc/pam.d/xscreensaver from install of xscreensaver-base-4.21-1 conflicts with file from package xscreensaver-4.18-4
file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/XScreenSaver from install of xscreensaver-base-4.21-1 conflicts with file from package xscreensaver-4.18-4

I want to install xscreensaver 4.21-1, I built all the RPMS from a .tar file. The last time i tried to do a replace file, it messed up my xscreensaver badly, i couldn't get any screensavers to run.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Yeah, i tried that, using the rpm -ev xscreensaver, this is the response i get.

[chylde@localhost ~]$ rpm -ev xscreensaver
error: Failed dependencies:
xscreensaver is needed by (installed) kdeartwork-3.3.1-1.i386
So, should i use a force command, or should i uninstall kdeartwork? I tried to do do it, while KDE wasn't up and running. Thanks so much, tho, I should have put that in my first post.

Ok, this is the result I got from trying to use yum, to uninstall xscreensaver 4.18-4:

[root@localhost chylde]# yum remove xscreensaver.i386

My questions is, should i just uninstall kdeartwork, and reinstall it after i uninstall xscreensaver 4.18-4, then install xscreensaver 4.21-1?

Have you tried running rpm -Uv xscreensaver-base-4.21-1.i386.rpm ? That's what you're supposed to do to upgrade an existing package via rpm. It should handle removing old unnecessary files from the old package (while leaving any config files, etc.).

Yeah, I did that, but the first time, all my screensavers just went blank, they wouldn't even run in test anymore. I see now what I did wrong. I forgot to run the ln command, to relink.
Hehe, I guess that's the price you pay for being a newbie, lol. Thanks a lot guys. :)
