I'm trying to do a kernel update today on my rawhide, but yum fails with
dependency issues.

This is weird because I'm trying to update (install) kernel 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
and it screams about dependencies for 2.6.21-1.3189.fc7

And yes, I did a `yum clean all' in the beginning :)

FTR: the ipw3945-kmdl and ieee80211-kmdl are from atrpms repo. I'm running
rawhide on this machine for a few weeks now and updated kernel & the modules
several times, but I've never seen this happen before.
Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2007-06-13 13:00:28 EDT
It's saying that your installed kmdl packages require a kernel your update is
set to remove.  This is correct.  It's the packages you already have installed
that will be broken by the upgrade.
