RE: re: driver conflicts



 I just ran into this exact issue, I can probably help you out.  What
hardware is this on, and are you using the bcm5700 module?

What is in /etc/modules.conf?

It means that the kernel already has a driver module of the same name (but
possibly different 
version).

Try either using the rpm -U option (upgrade) or move the file out to a
backup location before 
running the package install.
