071-0.FC4.3 is in updates-released now.
Maybe you hit an out of date mirror ?

It's there on the master site at ..
Comment 2 Frans Zoons 2006-03-07 12:18:19 EST
Hi Dave,

no, I'm sorry.I did not. I've used the same site.

Ok, so the next step should be:

Install/ update udev with yum:
[root@localhost Frans]# yum -y update udev
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Could not find update match for udev
No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion
Next try with rpm:

[root@localhost Frans]# rpm -iU /media/hdb1/Frans/MyDocs/udev-071-0.FC4.3.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        module-init-tools < 0:3.2-0.pre9.0.FC4.2 conflicts with
And checking with install packages:
udev (already installed)
module-init-tools (already installed)
kernel (needs udev -> not installed)
Any ideas? May be I should wait until the next kernel update!?
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2006-03-07 16:08:35 EST
bah, grab the module-init-tools update from the same url above.
(or you could try disabling the mirrorlist in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ and see if
that sorts everything out)
Comment 4 Frans Zoons 2006-03-08 06:18:10 EST
Already did that.
command 'yum search module-init-tools' in konsole gives as output:
'Matched from:
module-init-tools.x86_64                 3.2-0.pre9.0.FC4.4     installed'
Could it be that installing extra drivers (in this case Nvidia nforce 430 NIC
and audio) could change the configuration of FC4 in a way which makes updating
the kernel impossible!? Just guessing here...
