Upgrade to pidgin fails
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
I am trying to apply the update that changes from gaim to pidgin, but I get a
Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/bin/gaim from install of pidgin-2.0.1-1.fc6 conflicts with file from
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update
Transaction error when replacing gaim with pidgin
New pidgin package should replace gaim
This should be fixed in the x86_64 repo now. Could you please report back if it
Yes, it's working now, thanks. It starts and logs on to my various accounts,
though I wasn't able to test much more than that remotely.
No problems using Pidgin so far this week, so I'm closing the bug.
