Update, yum dumped out, complaining that kdegraphics-lib was needed by 
kdegraphics-extras-7.3.5.10.fc8.i386, and when I tell it to install it anyway, 
returns the same error.  removed it, took nearly 2 minutes! I suspect the cpu 
is running at powersave speed, I haven't heard the fan in ages.

But now the rest of the update is errored out, first bitch is about curl, but 
it looks like index.bz2 is contaminated.  If I remove it, it takes about 40 
pieces of kde with it.  Yum clean all, wash rinse repeat, can somebody bring 
me a beer?

Now its going to grab about 100 drpms.  First time I've actually seen that 
work.  Hope it does.

But I'm still puzzled, confused and wandering around in a fog.  Surely rawhide 
didn't get 120 new packages in the last 2 hours????  Explanations welcomed.  
And I still need that beer. :)

And that didn't work.  How can I force yum to overwrite 
/usr/share/man/man1/curl.1.gz from the fc8 install with the f11_x64 version?

Its also bitching about all the x86_64 stuff conflicting with the i586 stuff 
from kde-4.2.3.  Is there a force option for yum now?  Not according to the 
man page, crap...  Burning F10 dvd if I can get my drive to recognize it has a 
dvd-r blank disk in it.  Yup, recognized the 2nd disk, so its off to the 
races.

Why the hell did I even think about pulling that lappy out and putting it to 
use?  ATM, I can't think of a reason that justifies all this hell.
