Question Transaction Check Error when updating RHEL 5

Hi All,

Bit of Linux newbie myself so decided to post it here. I'm trying to update Red hat but am getting an when running transaction test. Heres what I get after running "yum update"

Transaction Summary
Install 28 Package(s)
Update 358 Package(s)
Remove 0 Package(s)

Total download size: 452 M
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Downloading Packages:
Running Transaction Test
Finished Transaction Test

Transaction Check Error: file /usr/share/man/man2/remap_file_pages.2.gz from install of man-pages-2.39-17.el5 conflicts with file from package eal3-certification-doc-1.1-2
file /usr/lib/cups/filter/textonly from install of cups-1.3.7-26.el5 conflicts with file from package redhat-config-printer-

Appriciate any help in getting around this, do I need to uninstall some of these packages before running yum updates again?

seeing as you have a paid for license have you looked up this error on the red hat help database ?

The first thing i do with yum errors is to clean the yum DB
yum clean all
rpm --rebuilddb
yum update
also you can break the update into 3 or 4 parts ( or even just 2 )

i bet that there is a kernel update in there
install that one first

yum update kernel*
as to cups

what third party repos are installed ?
rpmforge WILL be in conflict with RHN
to see
yum repolist all
will output a list of ALL installed repos
man yum 
-- and --
yum --help
