Comment 1 Tomas Janousek 2007-03-22 09:57:39 UTC
I'm unable to reproduce this. I bet this is some multilib/yum issue. When I tried to reproduce it, I had to install mysql to satisfy dovecot dep. Mysql depended on a newer version of ncurses, but yum decided to update only on x86_64. This resulted in a conflict. I have no idea how this may happen with dovecot though, it should not be multilib at all. Please check what architecture is your currently installed dovecot and try to rpm -Uvh the new one manully.

Comment 5 Tomas Janousek 2007-03-22 13:26:06 UTC
Seems like you have both i386 and x86_64 version of the package installed. I suppose you must have installed these with --nodeps or something, because these two collide in at least the /usr/sbin/dovecot binary. This package is not a multilib one, so this is a conflicting setup even before doing any update at all.
Comment 6 Skip Palin 2007-03-23 21:46:47 UTC
OK I screed up, when I did a update I used: yum -y --skip-broken update Sorry to waste your time.
