Installing X Window & Gnome problem


I am trying to install X and gnome with following command:
Quote:
yum groupinstall "X Window System" "GNOME Desktop Environment"
Everything goes fine to this point:
Quote:
Transaction Summary
=============================================================================
Install 298 Package(s)
Update 0 Package(s)
Remove 0 Package(s)

Total download size: 219 M
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Downloading Packages:
Running Transaction Test
Finished Transaction Test


Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/share/man/man1/gst-launch-0.10.1.gz from install of gstreamer-0.10.9-3.el5 conflicts with file from package gstreamer-0.10.9-3.el5
How could I get this solved. All the repro config is default CentOS 5.1


Thanks,
Tauno

Gstreamer being a multimedia application I doubt that any conflict would be fatal to the general Gnome install.

Have you tried adding the -t option to yum to increase the tolerance to errors? I'm not sure if it will still halt the install but worth a try.

Basically what I am trying to do is to configure firewall, for that I need X and gnome:
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/e...-firewall.html
I suspect that firewall options are causing samba to properly function when my windows boxes connect to the server.

As I see, yum has no force option to ignore depencies completely. At this point, I think yum has downloaded all the packages to local drive, as it skips downloading. How could I manually install X and gnome via rpm?


EDIT: I found the issue:
