Re: yum --skip-broken update by default?

A limited number of testers who attempt to install and update
EVERYTHING from every possible starting state between release and
current update collection.. including 3rd party interactions?

-jef

How about just within the current Fedora collection?

e.g.
  # yum install sysklogd
  Resolving Dependencies
   --> Running transaction check
   ---> Package sysklogd.x86_64 0:1.5-3.fc10 set to be updated
   --> Processing Conflict: sysklogd conflicts rsyslog
   --> Finished Dependency Resolution
   sysklogd-1.5-3.fc10.x86_64 from rawhide has depsolving problems
     --> sysklogd conflicts with rsyslog
   Error: sysklogd conflicts with rsyslog

or the problem that causes "yum install tetex-bytefield tetex-perltex" to just die without even trying to install them.
(rpm -Uvh ...  reports conflicts for these two with texlive)
rpm -Uvh ./rawhide/packages/tetex-bytefield-1.2a-4.fc10.noarch.rpm ./rawhide/packages/tetex-perltex-1.7-1.fc10.noarch.rpm Preparing... ########################################### [100%] file /usr/share/texmf/doc/latex/perltex/perltex.pdf from install of tetex-perltex-1.7-1.fc10.noarch conflicts with file from package texlive-texmf-doc-2007-26.fc10.noarch file /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/perltex/perltex.sty from install of tetex-perltex-1.7-1.fc10.noarch conflicts with file from package texlive-texmf-latex-2007-26.fc10.noarch file /usr/share/texmf/doc/latex/bytefield/bytefield.pdf from install of tetex-bytefield-1.2a-4.fc10.noarch conflicts with file from package texlive-texmf-doc-2007-26.fc10.noarch file /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/bytefield/bytefield.sty from install of tetex-bytefield-1.2a-4.fc10.noarch conflicts with file from package texlive-texmf-latex-2007-26.fc10.noarch

or the similar problem with "sos" ?
   rpm -Uvh ./rawhide/packages/sos-1.8-3.fc11.noarch.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%] file /usr/sbin/sysreport from install of sos-1.8-3.fc11.noarch conflicts with file from package sysreport-1.4.4-1.noarch file /usr/share/sysreport/functions from install of sos-1.8-3.fc11.noarch conflicts with file from package sysreport-1.4.4-1.noarch
