Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 237790
new poppler-utils package conflicts with xpdf-utils
Last modified: 2008-04-04 04:44:59 EDT
This is basically Bug 219033 backported to FC5.
When I try to install poppler-utils-0.5.1-3.fc5 I get the errors
file /usr/bin/pdftoppm from install of poppler-utils-0.5.1-3.fc5
conflicts with file from package xpdf-utils-3.01-12.1
file /usr/share/man/man1/pdftoppm.1.gz from install of
poppler-utils-0.5.1-3.fc5 conflicts with file from package xpdf-utils-3.01-12.1
To add more "fun" with xpdf installed after 'rpm -e --nodeps xpdf-utils'
yum will install poppler and poppler-utils, no sweat, but now
xpdf package is "broken" as it requires xpdf-utils and poppler-utils
does not provide that.
poppler-utils-0.5.1-3.fc5 was updated 4/24 and is the source of the conflict.
This seems to be a repeat of bug 219032 from December. Needs fixing ASAP.
Fixed this manually with 'yum remove poppler-utils xpdf-utils; yum -y update;
yum -y install xpdf beagle'.
The manual fix from Haakon Nilsen did not work for me - xfig and xpdf are now broken
Removing poppler-utils & xpdf-utils removed the conflicting packages along with
xpdf and xfig. This allowed me to upgrade poppler and poppler-utils, but, per
yum, xfig (Version 3.2.4-17.3.fc5) depends on xpdf (Version 1:3.01-12.1) which
depends on xpdf-utils-3.01-12.1 which conflicts with poppler-utils-0.5.1-3.fc5.
I can not reinstall xfig or xpdf
I'm begining to see why this bug has not been fixed.
I did get what I needed installed. Here's the pertinent portion of

At some point I started working from two different shells, so the history
command does not give a clear chronology.
We have the same problem which means we need to hold-off updating the poppler
packages on hundreds of machines. Any sign of progress on a fix for the file
