Re: Yum failing a dependency, removing FC3 packages of the same name as FC4

I think these two things might be related but I'm not sure.

Several months ago I used yum to update from FC3 to FC4. I removed the FC3 "fedora-release" package and installed the FC4 "fedora-release" package then did yum -y update. All went smooth. I've been running updates every week for quite a while with no problems. Today during a routine yum update I got the following dependency error:

--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Conflict: hal conflicts kernel < 2.6.11
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: hal conflicts with kernel < 2.6.11

I'm running 2.6.12.

2.6.12-1.1447_FC4smp #1 SMP

I ran a list of installed kernels and discovered:

kernel.i686                              2.6.12-1.1372_FC3      installed

Is the old FC3 kernel causing my dependency problem with "hal"?

Yes.

How do you remove a FC3 package when the FC4 package is named the same?

They aren't the same.

Do this to remove the pre-FC4 kernels:

# rpm -e kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 \
kernel-2.6.9-1.667 \
kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.35_FC3 \
kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.27_FC3 \
kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 \
kernel-smp-2.6.9-1.667 \
kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.14_FC3

You might also want to remove some of the older FC4 kernels if you're happy with the current kernel.
