Exclamation Trouble updating Libxml 2.7.7-3.6.i586.rpm

I tried to upgrade the libxml library on an opensuse server, and is giving me the following error:

libxml2 = 2.7.3 is needed by (installed) libxml2-python-2.7.3-2.2.i586

Now, if i try to update the libxml2-python library, is giving me the following dependencies error: is needed by libxml2-python-2.7.7-3.7.i586

So... this is kind of weird. I know that i can force the installation of the libxml, but since this is a production server for a PervasiveSQL BD i don't want to mess with forcing things.

Any help will be very appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for all the help guys! This newbie was able to solve it.I hope it helps somebody else.

I was able to solve it with the help of Zypper:

$ zypper repos --uri

# then i checked the repositories, i saw that i had to update the repositories to 11.3, so i had to disable the old repos and install the 11.3 repos
$ sudo zypper modifyrepo --all --disable
$ sudo zypper addrepo --name "openSUSE-11.3 OSS" repo-11.3-oss
$ sudo zypper addrepo --name "openSUSE-11.3 Non-OSS" repo-11.3-

# Once i had the right repos, make the installation of both packages...

$ sudo zypper refresh
$ sudo zypper install libxml2

# And in the end, return to the 11.2 repos

$ sudo zypper removerepo repo-11.3-update
$ sudo zypper removerepo repo-11.3-oss
$ sudo zypper removerepo repo-11.3-non-oss

$ sudo zypper modifyrepo -e repo-oss
$ sudo zypper modifyrepo -e repo-non-oss
$ sudo zypper modifyrepo -e repo-update
