Description Amadeus 2007-02-21 03:56:35 UTC
Description of problem:
yum gives the following error, which is a huge problem, as it blocks every other
package from being updated, as it can't resolve the problem of its own.

~# yum update

Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2007-02-21 03:59:40 UTC
you're updating against a rawhide/development mirror where the tk/tcl bindings
are broken. They were broken for quite some time in rawhide.

Comment 2 Amadeus 2007-02-21 04:05:50 UTC
Are there anything I can do to workaround it, so I can continue to use use/test fc7?

Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2007-02-21 04:08:47 UTC
yum --exclude=tk\* --exclude=tcl\* update

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2007-03-02 17:31:22 UTC
Moving to 'devel' as discussed on
