i have taken a look in the specfile and did not find something which could 
cause this problem. Could you please try to update the kde packages 
with rpm (rpm -Fvh kde*) instead yum. Does this problem still appear? 
Many Thanks for your report.

i have done a fresh fc4 installation on my test machine. 
First, i have tried to update KDE packages which rpm command and it works 
without any problem. With yum it breaks with above errors. 
It seems a bug in yum. 
Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2005-11-03 11:44:10 EST
can you please send the out put of this command:

yum list installed

Comment 5 Robert P. J. Day 2005-11-03 11:47:08 EST
I've only ever seen this error immediately after a fresh install of FC4,
followed by a "yum update".  (Actually, you have to first delete a few
kernel-related packages to get past a transaction error, but this error has
happened *every* time for me in those circumstances.)
Comment 6 Dimitri Papadopoulos 2005-11-04 02:11:25 EST
I guess you need the output of 'yum list installed' before 'yum update'?

I worked around the problem by removing package kde-i18n-Polish before running
'yum update'. I can't reinstall the workstation anymore (it's being tested) so I
can't provide this output now. But really, to reproduce the bug you just need a
complete FC4 installation.

By the way, I also had to remove packages cman-kernel, dlm-kernel, GFS-kernel,
and gnbd-kernel to be able to upgrade. They seem to be tied to a specific
version of the kernel, but updates are not provided alongside kernel packages.
For example, current updates are:

Here's the entire sequence of what happens when you do an "Everything" FC4
install and try to "yum update" in one operation these days -- this is from just
a few days ago.  The install works fine, but the first attempt at "yum update"
complains about a conflict based on the four *-kernel packages listed above
because they aren't compatible with the current kernel.

You can either just remove those packages (most people don't need them anyway),
or try again with:

  # yum --exclude="*-kernel" update

That command is the one that complains about the clash between kdelibs and
kde-i18n-Polish.  To get around that, I just removed the "kde-i18n-Polish"
package and then the above yum update command started to work.

Finally, if you don't have enough free space in /usr, the yum command will
eventually fail given that, these days, doing a yum update on a *fresh* install
involves updating over 550 packages.  To get around that last issue (obviously
not really an error, just an annoyance), I did the update in two steps:

  # yum --exclude "*-kernel" update "kde*"
  # yum --exclude "*-kernel" update

and everything was happy.
