YUM dependencies problem
I'm runniing an AMI (Amazon Machine Image) instance (kind of virtual machine) already configured with some programs running on the top of Fedora.
The thing is that when I try to make an update (yum update) som errors come up. I tried to install everything related with libevent*via yum but I can't do it because the dependencie issue described below. I tried aswell to download manually but it didn't work neither.
What could I do to solve this? I thought of uninstalling and installing yum but I'm not sure the consecuences of this. Anything?

Other than that: fedora 8 seems wrong.
fedora 17 is the current version.You must always face the curtain with a bow.

Repos are defined in /etc/yum.conf and in newer versions: /etc/yum.repos.d/
Upgrade of the OS means reinstallation.
Typically, these types of data are saved:
- database dumps
A version jump of this magnitude will have consequences.
e.g. data/db dumps might need to be adjusted (think: charsets)
and configs have evolved.You must always face the curtain with a bow.
