Re: Multiple Installed Packeages



ssh seems a little more behaved.  I was able to get a list of the
packages with problems running yum update.  I then removed the oldest of
each of the duplicates and am rerunning yum now.  So far it has not
complained about dependencies.  There were about 30 duplicates.

Thanks again.
