Comment 1 Peter Williams 2005-06-24 01:36:29 UTC
It looks like this is NOT an eclipse specific problem but a general
rpm/yum problem as I got the same errors when I tried to do an update.

Further this only happens on one of my machines (as luck would have it the first
one I tried) and the others seem to be OK.  I've tried rebuilding the rpm data
base to no avail.  Is there something else that I should try?

Comment 2 Peter Williams 2005-06-27 00:20:55 UTC
I have been able to work around this problem by removing the following packages
by hand:


Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2005-06-27 00:35:30 UTC
Yum chose the packages to install, and filled the transaction set that rpmlib installed, so this is no rpm 
problem. Changing component ...

I think you're just reading the error messages backward.
