Description of problem:
Installed F7 Test 4 with the default packages including Gnome only (no KDE). Attempted to use "yum groupinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"" to install KDE, and got the error message:
Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/share/config/kdm conflicts between attempted installs of kde-settings-kdm-3.5-23.fc7 and kdebase-3.5.6-10.fc7
Also tried to use "Add/Delete Programs", selecting KDE from Desktop Environments. Got an error box that says "Error updating software - There were errors encountered in trying to update the software you selected". Clicked on "Details" and got:
[('file /usr/share/config/kdm conflicts between attempted installs of kde-settings-kdm-3.5-23.fc7 and kdebase-3.5.6-10.fc7',(6,'/usr/share/config/kdm', 0L))]
Ran all of these operations as root.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F7 Test 4 taking only the default packages
2. Attempt to install KDE using Add/Remove Programs or the yum command line as above
Error message appears as described, and the KDE installation fails.
Message should appear indicating success, and KDE should install.
there're new kdebase/kde-settings in fc7 tree, which fix the conflict problem.
you should pleasse try to update again. Thanks for your report.
Thank you for the fast update. That appears to have fixed the problem, at
least I was able to do a complete KDE install. I am about to do another one so
we'll see, but I think it is fixed. Thanks again.
