Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-2.4.1-1.fc4

How reproducible:
Consistently reproducible

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
Error: Missing Dependency: libgcj34 >= 3.4.0-1 is needed by package xerces-j

xerces-j isn't part of FC3 so I'm unsure how this is a Fedora problem.
Comment 4 Rick Wanner 2006-03-30 16:50:25 EST
Then where did it come from? The only non-standard software on this box is big
brother (bb) and that was installed separately, not installed with yum.

All I know is that yum worked while this was a FC3 box, but it doesn't now that
it is an FC4 box.
Comment 5 Rick Wanner 2006-03-30 17:51:01 EST
Go ahead and close.  I deleted a bunch of rpm's including xerces-j and now yum
works.  Hope I don't need any of that stuff.
