You are saying that you got a notification bubble with the error message about
conflicts ?

Comment 2 José Esteves-Pereira 2008-02-11 12:38:00 UTC

What I'm saying is:

  rsyslog conflicts with syslog-ng
  syslog-ng conflicts with rsyslog

we may be facing a dead-lock.

That message has been showed me by RH Package Updater as I mentioned before.

I don't get it.

You have made this report against PackageKit in Fedora 8.

PackageKit is only available in Rawhide/Fedora 9 (Alpha).

what version of yum are you running ?

what does 'yum update' tell you ?

what does 'yum list rsyslog syslog-ng' says ?
if you are using yum-3.2.11, then you can use 'yum --skip-broken update' to
apply other updates.

thats pup, so the bug belongs to pirut. Unfortunately, I can't move bugs with
this javascript-challanged firefox.

Comment 6 Robin Norwood 2008-02-15 14:49:43 UTC
Moving to pirut component, and reassigning to katzj

fwiw, pirut is the existing package manager, and PackageKit is a new one being
developed upstream that we're checking out for possible use in F9.

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2008-02-20 23:44:33 UTC
This is a package problem.  There's really no way to in an automated fashion
handle a conflicts like this.  This is why conflicts are recommended against in
the packaging guidelines
