Transaction Check Error: Using YUM Extender for Upgrading System


I'm running CentOS 5.3 and attempting to use Yum Extender 2.0.3 which is under KDE which came with the system and I'm getting the error below.

Can anyone help me to understand and resolve this error.

Thanks

Transaction Check Error: file /usr/share/man/man3/File::Temp.3pm.gz from install of perl-5.8.8-41.el5.i386 conflicts with file from package perl-File-Temp-0.19-1.rf.noarch

Seems to be a conflict of different versions of perl files. Do you have multiple repositories configured?

yumEX is basically garbage

to Upgrade CentOS 5.3 to the current 5.9 ( soon to be 5.10 ) for the OLD 5 series
do this
Code:
 su -
yum --releasever=5.9 upgrade
BUT third party repos WILL CAUSE CONFLICTS, with an almost 100% certainty !!!
the third party repos for 5 are almost all incompatible with each other

and in your error the "rf" on the package name means "RpmForge"
and rpmforge for 5 is incompatible with -- well EVERYONE ELSE including centOS5 -update and CentOS5-base repos

so

uninstall EVERY "rf" package first
then upgrade ( as per above )
to get a list of installed rpmforge packages
Code:
su -
rpm -qa | grep rf 
--- output a text file list ---
rpm -qa | grep rf > /RpmForgeList.txt

John got the following errors after running the suggested command:

[root@centos5 /]# yum --releserver=5.9 upgrade

Command line error: no such option: --releserver
