Re: RFC: best way to fix the regular yum dependency problems with add-on packages from 3rd party repositories

Hi all!

About one or two times a month a lot of people run into decency problems like this:


Error: Missing Dependency: kernel-uname-r = 2.6.25.11-97.fc9.i686 is needed by
package kmod-nvidia-2.6.25.11-97.fc9.i686-173.14.09-5.lvn9.i686 (livna)

Every day I run into dependency problems like this, just with Rawhide rpms, not even third part ones: $ yum update phonon* Error: Missing Dependency: phonon = 4.2.0-1.fc10 is needed by package phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.2.0-1.fc10.x86_64 (installed)

   $ yum update digikam*
   Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/share/icons/oxygen/128x128/apps/digikam.png from install of digikam-0.10.0-0.1.beta2.fc10.x86_64 conflicts with file from package oxygen-icon-theme-4.1.0-1.fc10.noarch

Neither of these dependency issues is flagged in: "rawhide report: 20080802 changes"


It would really help if yum would automatically skip any rpm that conflicted with any *installed* rpm. Both for Rawhide and third-party rpms.
