Description of problem:
When yum fails a "yum update" because of missing dependencies, it should ask the
user to skip the failing packages and update the rest of them.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-13 14:57:20 EDT
Skipping one package can end up with a long chain of skipping and is
intentionally not done by default.  Install the skip-broken plugin and use it
with --skip-broken if you want this behavior.
