Comment 1 Peter Williams 2005-06-23 21:36:29 EDT
It looks like this is NOT an eclipse specific problem but a general
rpm/yum problem as I got the same errors when I tried to do an update.

Further this only happens on one of my machines (as luck would have it the first
one I tried) and the others seem to be OK.  I've tried rebuilding the rpm data
base to no avail.  Is there something else that I should try?
Comment 2 Peter Williams 2005-06-26 20:20:55 EDT
I have been able to work around this problem by removing the following packages
by hand:

commons-modeler-devel
commons-collections-devel
mx4j-tools
commons-beanutils-devel
commons-fileupload-devel
commons-digester-devel
commons-dbcp-devel
commons-pool-devel
javamail-devel
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2005-06-26 20:35:30 EDT
Yum chose the packages to install, and filled the transaction set that rpmlib installed, so this is no rpm 
problem. Changing component ...
Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2005-07-29 15:00:55 EDT
I think you're just reading the error messages backward.

see this:

It's linked from the yumfaq here:
