Cleanup after failed upgrade
Last modified: 2008-04-22 11:53:06 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried to upgrade from FC5 -> FC7. The process continued through
some 600 of 995 packages, then crashed (solid). Now I have tons of
multiply installed packages, many causing conflicts when I try to
update using 'yum'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Looking for help and guidance on how to clean up the install.
List of installed RPM packages is attached.

Package list after failed upgrade
Certainly the best thing to do here is to just reinstall the latest stuff and
keep going. Barring that, the best way in my opinion is to remove the new
versions of the duplicate packages and try again with the upgrade. Anyway,
probably the fastest way to get a response on things like this in the future is
to try one of the user mailing lists.
