Description Saikat Guha 2007-02-25 11:54:51 EST
Conflicts while yum upgrade.

Transaction Check Error:   file /usr/share/man/man8/dmsetup.8.gz from install of
device-mapper-1.02.17-6.fc7 conflicts with file from package

Seems like yum isn't pulling in the 1.02.17-6.fc7.i386 causing the conflict

[root@sioux ~]#  rpm -qf /usr/share/man/man8/dmsetup.8.gz

[root@sioux ~]# yum install device-mapper.x86_64 device-mapper.i386

Comment 1 Alasdair Kergon 2007-02-27 12:04:43 EST
I think it's a question for yum, what the right behaviour should be when
overlapping packages from two archs have been installed like that.

[-libs is now separate so you probably don't want the device-mapper i386 package
installed any more.]
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-02-27 12:07:37 EST
This is purely a bug in the upgrade path in the package.  You don't have
anything saying that the old, other arch of the device-mapper package should be
Comment 3 Alasdair Kergon 2007-02-27 12:11:44 EST
can you point to an example of how to do this?
Comment 4 Alasdair Kergon 2007-02-27 15:43:13 EST
Trying with -libs Obsoleting pre-split device-mapper package.
Comment 5 Alasdair Kergon 2007-02-27 15:44:23 EST
I note that 'gzip -n' should have been used to compress the man page to avoid
the conflict.
Comment 6 Alasdair Kergon 2007-07-19 16:19:39 EDT
Hopefully fixed now.
