    Updates


    Evening all.

    I got my internet connection working tonight (been setting up a network) and was impressed that FC6 detected and connected to it instantly. Unfortunately the updates were a bit of a problem. It found 107. So I started the download and it said it found clashes in 7 of them. So I unchecked them and installed the rest - fine.

    So how do I stop the updates clashing? The 7 are:

    frysk
    gaim
    hal
    mkinitrd
    pango
    python
    totem

    When I click "Apply Updates" for these remaining 7 it says "Error resolving dependencies" and under details says "python-devel conflicts with python < 2.4.4-1.fc6". So I uncheck python,and it gets to "Preparing transaction". Then it says "Error updating software". Under details I get a huge string of errors saying

    file /etc/gconf/schemas/totem.schemas from install of totem-2.16.3-1.fc6 conflicts with file from package totem-2.16.1-1.fc6' (7, '/etc/gconf/schemas/totem.schemas', 0L))

    Each one with the same address just from the different package. I tried deleting the files but the updater doesn't even notice. It says they're still there.

    So. What to do?

    I find the best way to do this is via terminal command line.
    First you have to see if the package python2.4.4-1.fc6 is on your system.
    Do a rpm -q |grep python and see if "python2.4.4-1.fc6" is listed. If so do a rpm -e --nodeps python2.4.4-1.fc6
    Then do a yum -y update and see what the next error is. I had several of these type of errors on the update and once removed I was able to update with no errors. Also i have had no issues with python too.
    Good Luck,

    When i did rpm -q python the first time it said I had "python-2.4.3-18.fc6" and "python-2.4.3-1.fc6". So I used rpm -e to wipe the old version like you said. Then I ran yum -y update and it the terminal pumped out a big list of packages set to be updated. Then it said "Finished Dependency Resolution" before throwing this error:

    Error: Missing Dependency: python = 2.4.3-18.fc6 is needed by package python-devel

    But I have the "-18" version. I checked rpm -q python again, and it said "python-2.4.3-18.fc6" as expected. What's going on?

    Remove the newer one and redo yum -y update again.
    Update will resolve the dependency and reload it.

    bash: /usr/bin/yum: /usr/bin/python: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

    ...getting weird...

    I get the same error. Even if i just type "yum" it says "bash: /usr/bin/yum: /usr/bin/python: bad interpreter: No such file or directory". Any way I can reinstall python without using yum?

    Cheers
