Description of problem:
While trying to do a yum update of my system the other day, the entire update
failed owing to a packinging conflict between xpdf and poppler. I was able to
resolve the update conflict by rpm -e removing xpdf and xpdf-util. But when I
try to reinstall xpdf and xpdf-util it fails to install with a file conflict.
