In a discussion this morning on the Fedora-test-list mention was made
of the --obsolete switch to the yum program.  Using this does allow
the new xorg package to be installed.

bug 131784 is a duplicate of this one, requested close.

Also, I can verify that this bug exists as of today's rawhide. :)

There is a problem occuring for some people when trying to upgrade
to the new xorg-x11 packages, but it is not a bug, or at least not
a bug in the xorg-x11 packages.  The font packaging has changed and
been split out into separate "noarch" packages.  If you do not
upgrade/install the proper packages in the correct order (using rpm)
then rpm may give dependancy warnings or "conflicts with" errors.
These errors indicate that the person attempting to upgrade, is not
upgrading the packages in the correct order to satisfy all
dependancies correctly, so the upgrade will fail.

If you use rpm manually instead of yum, you will need to manually
download all of the latest xorg-x11 and fonts-xorg packages from
fedora development, and run the following command exactly as written,
while in the download directory:

    rpm -Uvh xorg-x11*.rpm fonts-xorg*.rpm

Do not use "rpm -Fvh" or some other altenative, as it will not
install all of the required packages, and the upgrade will fail.

Others may be using "yum update" to upgrade to the new xorg-x11
packages.  In this case a problem related to yum occurs as well,
which seems to be related to the fonts moving from one package
to another and "obsoleting" the older xorg-x11 font packages.
If you're using yum to upgrade, be sure to use the following

    yum --obsoletes update

If you still have problems trying to upgrade to the new xorg-x11
and fonts-xorg packages after trying the above commands, please
subscribe to the fedora-test-list@redhat.com mailing list, scan the
archives for suggestions given to people having similar problems,
and if you still get stuck, ask for help on the mailing list, and
someone will probably be able to assist.

Hope this helps.

Comment 8 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-23 03:03:06 UTC
For those who skim through the above and miss it, the quick solution
to this problem is:

    yum --obsoletes update

If this does not solve the problem, please read fedora-list mailing
list archives, as this yum issue has been discussed in great detail
there, with comments from the author of yum.

Hope this helps,
