full output of yum update

This is a RHEL 5 client upgrade install over a fully updated RHEL 4 WS
installation.  The dependencies appear for packages that do not appear to be
slated for updating.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-03-19 18:09:14 EDT
If you're updating from WS, you need to do Client + a Workstation Installation
Number.  Otherwise, you don't have the full set of packages to match to what you
previously had.
