I downloaded all the rpm 5.0 packages, and I tried to use|
yum update \
but yum dies with dependency issues.
I think yum is sort of like the lynchpin, updating it seems to be very problematic.
If you read my previous reply to Kevin Fenzi, you will see why I even tried
to go with rpm 5.0.

How can I update to the new 5.0 stuff safely, so that I am not left without an rpm tool. The dependencies are so many, I am not sure how I can update and not break the dependents.Use yum to do the update. It will manage any dependencies. It also takes care of not removing the old version before the new version is installed. (That is why it first gets all the packages, does the install, and then does cleanup.) Mikkel
