Description of problem:
bash-3.1# rpm -q bind
bash-3.1# rpm -i caching-nameserver-7.3-5.FC5.noarch.rpm
file /etc/named.conf from install of caching-nameserver-7.3-5.FC5
conflicts with file from package bind-9.3.2-12.FC5
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install bind
2. try to install caching-nameserver
Inability to install caching-nameserver due to a file conflict
caching-nameserver succesfully installed
bind is from fc5 updates
The caching-nameserver RPM is now obsoleted by the bind-config package,
which 'Provides: caching-nameserver'.
If you obtained bind-9.3.2-12.FC5 via a 'yum update' command, then
caching-nameserver would be correctly 'obsoleted' by bind-config.
You do not need to install caching-nameserver if you have bind-config installed.

I'm still seeing this problem. Essentally the update path from a vanilla FC-5 to
the current FC-5 updates in Core, Updates and Extras.
On a vanilla system:
# rpm -q bind
# rpm -q caching-nameserver
# rpm -qf /etc/named.conf
Trying to update:
# yum -y update
bind x86_64 30:9.3.2-33.fc5 updates 941 k
Transaction Check Error: file /etc/named.conf from install of
bind-9.3.2-33.fc5 conflicts with file from package caching-nameserver-7.3-5.FC5
The problem is that bind-config is not part of the vanilla install, and
therefore doesn't get a chance to Obsolete caching-nameserver. I'm guessing the
answer is having bind Requires: bind-config ?
