Description of problem:
I have just (re-)installed fc6 on an x86_64 and applied all the updates. I can 
 For a number of packages I get a complaint that the package has files that
conflict with a newer version of itself.  As most of these where -devel packages
that I had no reason to have installed anyway, I deleted them.  But two remain -
gnome-panel.i386 and elfutils-libelf.i386.   It seems as though I have two
versions installed for yum gnome-panel and elfutils-libelf.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Don't know, have not attempted another re-install.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fc6 from DVD
2. Run yum update
Actual results:
gnome-panel and elfutils-libelf will not upgrade do to dependancy conflicts

Expected results:
gnome-panel and elfutils-libelf should upgrade correctly

Did you have a failed update run in there?  As you have multiple versions of
packages installed which isn't normal.

Comment 2 Dave Atkinson 2007-03-21 21:05:16 UTC
To be honest, I cannot now remember, sorry.  It's possible, but I didn't think
so.  I did also discover that I had numerous multiple packages for all sorts of
things, which I have manually removed, and have had no further problems.  As I
am no longer able to repeat the problem, I suppose you can close the bug -
manual removal seems to be the fix.  Thanks for your help.
