Description Need Real Name 2001-06-25 17:01:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686; Nav)

Description of problem:
I get the following message when I try to upgrade XFree86-S3: (via up2date)
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
file /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/pex5.so from install XFree86-S3-3.3.6-38 
conflicts with file from package XFree86-S3-3.3.6-35

I've also tried to download the file and rpm -Uvh   but this is also
failing because of conflicts.

At current time I'm having a problem with my cursor (it's now a square 1"
block instead of an arrow) and also the graphics are not nice to see. 
Please can you give me an advise how to proceed (or even better what to do
with this square 1" block). My videocard is a Diamond Viper II with the
Savage2000 processor, 32Mb Ram.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date  then select XFree86-S3
2. or rpm -Uvh XFree86-S3-3.3.6-38.rpm

Actual Results:  Nothing it's giving an error

Expected Results:  A newer (better???) version for my XFree

I'm also not able to see any 'video' (mpeg types) anymore, I can hear the sound
but I only see something when I pause the video.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-07-08 14:56:07 UTC
Please give a estimated time when this problem could be solved. I did a total
new install but the problem still occurs.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-13 03:38:39 UTC
There was a problem with RHN and this update, as well as some other glitches
that somehow managed to get through the cracks.  The problem is
due to some packaging issues that were not discovered until after it was
released, but which are quite large to fix right now.
This will be fixed at some point, but for now, the workaround is to download
the packages via FTP, and upgrade all XFree86 packages at once on a single

XFree86-Servers-3.3.6-41 corrects the upgrade problem however it is not
tested.  This package is in our internal tree and will appear in
rawhide in the near future.

Comment 5 Need Real Name 2001-07-31 09:27:34 UTC
I can't find the packages you mentioned on the ftp://updates.redhat.com

Please can you give me the path where I can find the package(s)?  Thanks, I've 
you want I can give you my comments of the package(s).

Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2002-06-19 16:57:08 UTC
Bug hasn't had an indication if the update has worked or not in almost a
year, so I'm assuming the problem is solved and closing the bug as fixed
in Red Hat Linux 7.3.
