Well, actually not complete...
The problem is that in atlas-3.6.0-15.fc10 /usr/lib/atlas was actually
a directory. Then atlas-sse2-3.8.2-{2,3}.fc11 tries to replace this
_directory_ with _symlink_, this cannot be done with rpm.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum -y upgrade
2. see what happens on atlas
Actual results:
see above
Comment 1 Deji Akingunola 2008-12-17 00:26:19 EST
Thanks for the report. I will change the linking directory together to actually copying /usr/lib/atlas-sse2 into /usr/lib/atlas.
