Description of problem:
This may be related to BZ 144376, but not sure so opening a new one.
Did a fresh install of FC3, ran yum updates with standard FC3 base and
updates-released repos successfully, then added my favorite 3rd party
repos (dag, freshrpms, gstreamer, atrpms-stable, newrpms, local,
macromedia.mplug.org) and tried to update again. Got numerous
seemingly-bogus conflicts, so decided to give yum-2.1.13 from rawhide
a shot at it. Grabbed the SRPM and rebuilt from source for FC3.
Things improved considerably after upgrade to rawhide-rebuilt
yum-2.1.13-1 - far fewer conflicts reported - but yum still tried to
install two versions of opensp. I tried to force just the opensp
# yum install opensp
and that completed OK. Then tried again and yum wanted to "update"
opensp to a version older than the installed one. ...
# yum upgrade
... several KB of output/errors deleted ...
Finished Transaction Test
Transaction Check Error: package opensp-1.5.1-9.rhfc3.at (which is
newer than opensp-1.5-0_6.1.rhfc3.at) is already installed
# yum --exclude=opensp upgrade
and that allowed the upgrade to complete. Then
# yum upgrade
returned with no further packages to upgrade.
Have captured the logs of the entire process attached.

Described in original bug report.
okay, I've looked through all of this - there's a problem with
something trying to pull in the older opensp but I can't figure out
what yet. Right now, unless I can get a repeater that is less involved
than this I'm going to suggest that's it just an inter repo conflict
(and you do have a lot of various repos, not that they're conflicting,
just that things happen). For now.
Like I said I'll snoop around and look for some reason why the older
opensp is being pulled in, but for the moment I can't trace it back
through these logs. They aren't detailed enough, sadly. debug level 5
and higher is normally needed.
reopen if you can find a way to replicate it.
