Description of problem:
When updating a box, this became a showstopper:
Error: kdemultimedia-extras conflicts with kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree <
This is pretty interesting, because:
$ rpm -q kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree
denotes that the installed version is NOT lower than 3.5.6-3. I don't know what
should be fixed here.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is due to a wrong epoch in the Conflicts tag. The Conflicts lists epoch 6,
whereas kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree-3.5.6-3.lvn6 actually has no epoch (which
is essentially the same as epoch 0). 0:3.5.6-3.lvn6 < 6:3.5.6-3, thus the
problem. Either the Conflicts needs to be fixed, or the epoch of
kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree needs to be bumped to 6 to match the other
Thanks Kevin, fixing asap.
Looks like Michael caught it before I got to it, thanks.

- fix the fatal "Conflicts" with kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree, which
breaks upgrades - the package does not have Epoch 6
Yeah, everything is OK now. Thanks!
(and you're right, no kittens were harmed :) )
