Re: Problems installing xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.45

In order to solve a nasty problem with xorg-x11 I installed xorg-
x11-6.8.2-45 from rawhide. Now it has been released under the name of:
xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.45 and when trying to install this package using
"yum update" I get:

Transaction Check Error:   package xorg-x11-libs-6.8.2-45 (which is
newer than xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.45) is already installed

As I am quite new with yum I don't know how to overcome this. What magic
option will force the released version onto the system?
Look at list of files yum proposes to download/install, then download them manually from http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/4/i386/

Then (in the folder _only_ containing the newly downloaded xorg-rpms):
$ rpm -Uvh --force *.rpm

.. to force install/update.
