My few FC4 boxes have had three xorg-x11 updates this month: 6.8.2-37.FC4.45 6.8.2-37.FC4.48.1 6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2 None of them produced any errors (using yum). What is supposed to go wrong there? Also, you say that duplicate xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU packages can cause problems. I checked, and do indeed have: xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.8.2-37.FC4.48.1 xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2 This is annoying, but it turns out they're identical anyway: # rpm -V xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.8.2-37.FC4.48.1 .......T /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1.3 # rpm -V xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2 What problems should I expect? The duplication only exists in the RPM DB, the newer package obviously overwrote the older one (which still verifies ok, apart from the timestamp). The duplicate DB entry is easily removed with # rpm -e --justdb xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.8.2-37.FC4.48.1 I don't seem to get the gravity of the situation... ;) Cheers Steffen. PS If you think RPM sucks you should try the Solaris package tools...
