Description of problem:
trying to upgrade fc3 to fc4 with yum
reviewed wiki known problems list...
encountered one not listed...
demands flac.so > 4...
had to do the kernel upgrade from package and uninstall,
then manual upgrade of flac before yum update worked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have fc3 installed and updated to current updates
2. download fc4-release and upgrade, update kernel as well
3. try to yum upgrade
upgrade fails due to a whole bunch of packages depending on libflac.so >= .4
upgrade should have proceeded because FC4 contains libflac.so >= .4
work around... upgrade flac manually by downloading it from FC4 tree,
then upgrade proceeds.
maybe this should make it's way into the wiki?
